Abbey Backstage Tours
For over one hundred years the Abbey Theatre has celebrated the power of theatre and the joy bringing together writers, directors, actors and audiences.
Join us for an exclusive insight into the history and behind the scenes workings of Ireland’s national theatre on our guided backstage tours.
Get access to areas rarely seen by the public, as our knowledgeable tour guides lead you on an engaging visit through the many aspects that come together to make Ireland’s national theatre, exploring the fascinating challenges of each new production. Enjoy an introduction to the our historic art collection and be inspired by our founders, William Butler Yeats, Lady Gregory and the Fay brothers.
As we are a busy working theatre, our tours are scheduled to match the running dates of our Abbey stage plays.
