The Triskel Arts Centre is an innovative forum for the arts, including music, literature, visual art, education and theatre.

Originally founded in 1978, the mission of the newly-refurbished Triskel Arts Centre is to commission, present, and promote the contemporary arts in Cork.

Now housed in the restored Christchurch building and surrounded by its beautiful grounds, the centre is now home to exhibitions, concerts, a new arthouse cinema, Plugd record store and Gulpf Café.

Christchurch guided tours take place on Tuesdays at 12.00 & Thursdays at 14.00. The tour includes an introduction to the newly-renovated building, the medieval and early modern history of the church, the building’s distinctive features, its historical characters, graveyard and crypt.

The Main Gallery is now the home of The Black Mariah – an artist-led project and exhibition space, focused on cultivating new audiences for contemporary art in Cork by facilitating and presenting innovative practices.

The move to Christchurch has been a remarkable development, and has transformed Triskel Arts Centre into one of the key arts venues in Ireland.
