HOTELS NEAR THE GATE THEATRE
The Gate Theatre Dublin has been, artistically and architecturally, a landmark building for over 250 years. Established as a theatre in 1930 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammóir, the Gate offered Dublin audiences an introduction to the world of European and American avant-garde theatre and also classics from the modern and Irish repertoire. It was with the Gate that Orson Welles, James Mason, Geraldine FitzGerald and Michael Gambon began their prodigious acting careers.
The Theatre is unique in that it has had only two artistic directorates in 82 years. In 1983 the directorship passed to Michael Colgan, under whose guidance the Gate has successfully showcased the very best of Irish writing, and the highest production values. The Gate continues to represent Ireland at the very uppermost level of artistic endeavour and internationally its reputation has never been higher, receiving numerous invitations each year to major festivals all over the world.
