For a provincial theatre the facilities are very good. Large bar (this... More

This is an excellent theatre and performance space. They have a great events diary and an eclectic mix of event are happening all the time. They have a large Board outside which is very helpful for people wishing to plan a night out.

it was a good play and a very good night out very fun in parts but also serious in others it took in death, drugs and how life is in Ireland today but the play did it all with comedy. The actors were very good

I remeber coming here when I did the singing camp with Jim Malley last year.

I visited here to attend a lecture as part of the Tread Softly festival. It is a nice small theatre of a kind that deserves lots of support. Clean, tidy, good foyer/reception area with a decent bar which would be a good addition to an evening visit but wasn't for me at a 9.30 am lecture! However, the bar staff... More

With only 350 seats this small venue provides an intimate atmosphere where you feel you can interact with the performers. We were at a concert and the atmosphere was fantastic!
