Combining concerts, contemporary visual art, independent cinema, literature events & heritage tours at Triskel Christchurch; Triskel Arts Centre is THE centre for culture in Cork. Triskel Arts Centre is a vibrant cultural HUB in the heart of Cork City and celebrated 40 years in 2018. Our main auditorium Triskel Christchurch is a multidisciplinary space housed in a fully refurbished neoclassical Georgian Church.
This state-of-the-art venue, which launched in 2011, is programmed with a rich bill of live music, with a focus on Classical and Jazz concerts, cultural cinema, visual art exhibitions and literary events. Triskel also runs a contemporary art room Triskel Gallery Space. Unique in Ireland, the pioneering Theatre Development Centre is the only fulltime operation dedicated to the development of theatre, this is managed by Corcadorca Theatre Company.
In addition to being one of the most popular event venues in Cork for live music, cinema, visual art, festivals, education and special events; Triskel is home to a café with an atmospheric casual dining and coffee space with a great brunch and lunch menu and a tapas style evening offering. The Collective Cork, a yoga and dance school, recently joined the Triskel family.
The history of Christchurch dates back to the 900s when Viking settlers established a trading community on what is now known as South Main Street in the city centre. The building work to restore and renovate Christchurch and its integration into the Triskel Arts Centre began in 2009. Two years later in April 2011 the new complex opened its doors for the very first time. The project has been a remarkable development and has transformed Triskel into one of the key small event venues in Cork.
