As Ireland’s national theater, Abbey Theater nurtures as well as stages the work of the country’s literary greats. Founded in 1904 by W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory, it is a setting for much controversy, including the 1926 premier of Sean O’Casey’s ‘The Plough and the Stars,’ where the Irish Free State flag appeared in a pub scene with prostitutes. The bar across the street is melting pot of actors, writers, and excellent beer.
