I've visited the Everyman lots of times over the past few decades and it's still the same. The Box office got an upgrade a good few years ago but it needs an overhaul, as it was built in 1840 and has ornate ceiling work. The building is looking really outdated building and could do with a good clean. The sound... More

Having gone to the opera house for the past few pantomines i decided to go to the everyman instead. What a really outdated building. Really needs to be cleaned. A shop operating out of a wardrobe with no change for a 50e note? Bit backward for 2016? Panto itself wasnt great. All over the place. No proper story. Our views... More

We attended the panto at the Everyman a few days ago. The Everyman theatre reminds me of a small West End theatre in London. It is Victorian and it opened around 1897 or 1898. As far as I am aware, it's the oldest purpose-built theatre building in Cork and it houses approximately 650 seats. All of these seats seemed to... More

My husband and I travelled down to Cork last night to see Martin McDonagh's latest offering, "The Pillowman" in The Everyman Theatre. As an aside, as ever Mr. McDonagh didn't disappoint......a witty and thought-provoking show and a wonderful performance by a very talented cast. The Everyman is such a lovely venue. It offers a wide variety of entertainment. Something to... More

Recently went to see Des Bishop at the Everyman. It was an excellent night. The theatre is beautiful, so if you're in Cork & looking for something to do it is worth seeing what is on & visiting. Tickets can be purchased online or at the venue. Comfy seating. Can buy refreshments/alcohol too. One tip though - if you are... More

The Everyman building is one of the oldest purpose built building in cork. It was built in 1840. The ceiling is fabulous with its plasterwork. The stage arch and boxes are fantastic it has hosted many big names in days past and now puts on dramas dance and variety shows

Some theatres can seen so big i feel . Having been to the opera house hundreds of times i went to see a relative perform here for the first time . Brilliant ! The walls seemed to envelop me and the 3 hours past in what seemed a short few minutes . Cosy . Comfortable and well worth the visit
