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

We attended a lunch-time trombone recital in the converted church. The standard was acceptable and the venue atmospheric. There was also an exhibition of pencil animal prints which displayed intricate workmanship and a strange photographic montage in the crypt. Not a place to linger.

We got married in the Triskel Arts Centre in July 2017. We didn’t want a church wedding but we did like the idea of having a wedding that looked like it was in a church, which is the beauty that the Triskel can provide. It...More

It's an art gallery and a music venue. There is a bar with a restaurant in it too. The food is good.

I regularly attend showings in the Triskel and every time it has been a hugely enjoyable evening. The setting is very unique and the sound and picture quality is quite good. The independent films are fabulous and I always look forward to returning!

Here we have an arts centre built into a 17th century church which was itself built on a Viking church site. The old wooden pews and interior are still in place while you can see some ancient memorials in the crypt. And of course it...More

I absolutely love what has been done with Triskel Chrstchurch. Not sure of any other cinemas that are located in a church. Some people complain about the seats when watching a movie here but I honestly don't know why. I have never found it uncomfortable...More
