A lovely little venue, a great view from every seat! Great acoustics and an intimate concert location. They have a bar and snacks available for purchase before and after each event.

Very interesting sculptures inspired by Yeats. Beautiful to look at as was the rest of the building. It's down by the river front rather than in the centre of town. Worth a visit, free entrance and the sculptor was there to explain the exhibition.

We were staying in the area for the weekend and looking for something to do on the Friday night. They were performing a Somerset Maugham play, the Constant Wife, with local actors and we were able to get some seats in the front row at the last minute. 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
