    Our mission is to welcome audiences to Dublin’s oldest, newest theatre. Our policy is to provide an enjoyable, affordable, quality experience, challenging & engaging you, in a friendly, feel-good atmosphere.

    Smock Alley was the first custom-built theatre in the city and still remains in substantially the same form, making it one of the most important sites in European theatre history. Smock Alley Temple Bar Theatre was the first theatre outside London to receive the title of Theatre Royal, but because it had been built on land reclaimed from the Liffey, the building was unstable and the gallery collapsed twice; it was rebuilt in 1735.
