Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich Review
A £2 million renovation and extension in 2011 to mark its 20th anniversary breathed new life into this venue. Celebrating Gaeilge (Irish language) and culture, this cosmopolitan arts center hosts exhibitions, book launches, concerts, theater, and poetry readings. Two choirs—one from a children's drama school and the other from resident theater company Aisling Ghéar—are based here. For travelers interested in the Gaeltacht experience, this is a great place to start. On the ground floor, the Dillon Gallery, named after the Falls Road artist Gerard Dillon, who spent much time painting in Connemara in the west of Ireland, mounts shows by top local and international artists. A shop sells Irish-language and English books as well as crafts and the all-important West Belfast Mural Map. Also here are a tourist information point, Wi-Fi access, and a café. The center's staff can arrange regional tours and book accommodation. At the time of going to press, plans are underway to create a 2½-mile walking route, The Gaeltacht Way, due for completion in 2014. Check with the staff for details.
