Overview
More
Triskel Arts Centre was founded in 1978, and moved to its current home in Tobin Street in 1986. Triskel celebrates its Fortieth Birthday in 2018 and Christchurch is 300 years old. 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.

Ever seen a horror movie at 11pm in a church? Well.. you could certainly experience that here, especially during the film festival, so worth a visit for an arthouse cinema experience

Very good conversion of an old church into an impressive presentation space, art gallery, and exhibit area. Whether or not you have an event to attend at the Trisket, walk over to visit when you are in the center of Cork!

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.
