Owner description: Triskel Arts Centre was founded in 1978, and moved to its current home in Tobin Street in 1986. Triskel celebrated its Thirtieth Anniversary in 2008. As Cork's principal Arts Centre our mission has always been to commission, present, and promote the contemporary arts in Cork, and to ensure the arts are made available to as wide a public as possible.In 2009 Triskel began a process of re-invention, partly because Christchurch, a beautiful 18th Century building, was to be restored by Cork City Council, linked to the existing building, and given to Triskel to manage. Triskel also began this process because it is important to continue to be relevant for artists, practitioners and the public at large. On 15th April 2011, that became a reality when the new complex was launched. We now act as an art gallery, independent cinema, civil wedding venue and a concert hall. Guided tours of this historic building are also available

Visited first as part of heritage day and was delighted to discover that it is one of the oldest buildings in Cork City. Subsequently went to a traditional Irish music concert and it proved to be a wonderful venue. Also it has a small coffee shop which does a wonderful "Beamish" cake. Beamish is a local Cork stout.

As a student I was taken to the Triskel Arts Centre in Christ Church right in the middle of Cork city. I must admit I was not looking forward to the visit but the guide soon had me very interested in the history of Cork contained therein. History was brought alive to us as we learned of a King being crowned there and royal weddings having taken place there. We learned that the tower was meant to be higher but had to be reduced when it began to sink in our Corcach (=marsh, which is the origin of the name Cork). It is a theatre as well where plays, music and other shows take place.

Spent Saturday night in the company of Bell X1 on one of their "Field Recordings". The acoustics for this unplugged style concert were fantastic. The atmosphere in the old church of Ireland building are are real treat. Make sure you check out this venue if you are in Cork.

Enjoyed a very intimate gig by Jason Rebello - super auditorium, perfect to listen to Jason. A few more seats would have been nice - only 3 and we had 2 of them! Very friendly staff, genuinely helpful.

Great acoustics for concerts, church benches aren't superbly comfy but it's not a big issue. Fine example of a sacral building finally serving the community in a right manner ;)
