An Tain Arts Centre is an independent arts space in Dundalk, Co. Louth based in the former Tain Theatre, Town Hall, Crowe Street. A market town situated along Ireland’s Ancient East, Dundalk has a rich cultural heritage that dates to at least 3500 BC. An Tain Arts Centre derives its name from the Tain Bo Cuailnge or the Cattle raid of Cooley, a legendary story from early Irish literature, which is said to have taken place in the nearby Cooley Penninsula. An epic tale of war, it tells the story of Queen Medbh of Connacht who declares war on Ulster and tries to steal the famous stud bull Donn Cuailnge, but is opposed by the super-human warrior Cuchulainn who defends Ulster at all costs. Supported by Louth County Council, An Tain Arts Centre houses a 350 seat main theatre, a 55 seat studio theatre, a visual arts gallery and two workshop spaces. The programme is a diverse collection of local arts, national tours, workshops, exhibitions and in-house productions.

A very nice theatre and arts exhibition location. The old city hall, being reused in this way is a great idea. There is always something on here. Worth a visit during the day to see the latest exhibition or if staying overnight grab a show.
