The GBS is a state of the art theatre providing excellent nights out, providing for national touring theatre, as well as local theatre groups; music nights out, and many and vaired social events. Run by a great team of dedicated staff.

Have been there many times now. The latest visit was last Friday night for the Jack L gig in the GB Shaw Theatre. Had a delicious meal in Lennons beforehand. All in all a great evening out.

Great place , not sure if it fits in amongst the old buildings. But that's modern day planning in Carlow/Ireland . Good restaurant , but can be a bit pricey. In all lovely garden landscapes . Nice place for a lovely walk to contemplate life's little problems.

The food is second to none at the restaurant in the visual arts centre. went with a friend for lunch and were lucky to get a table as it seems to be busy at lunchtime most days. definitely would recommend it.

Surprisingly large art gallery for a small town. Constantly changing exhibits, mostly contemporary (i.e. weird but interesting). The building its self is very modern and worth a look for architecture fans. Set in the attractive grounds of an old seminary (now college) Restaurant on downstairs.
