The Midlands Nightlife

Dunamaise Arts Centre

Updated 04/28/2014

Fodor's Review

This lively arts center has a 240-seat theater, an art gallery, and a friendly coffeehouse (open daily 8:30–5:30). You may catch a professional production on tour or a local amateur show. The exhibition space displays the work, usually of a surprisingly high standard, of contemporary Irish artists. It's built into the back of the 18th-century stone courthouse on Church Street in a space that used to be the town jail. In September 2013 the centre hosted the inaugural

James Fintan Lalor School, bringing together those interested in Irish history, politics, heritage and current affairs. Lalor was an agrarian reformer whose writings inspired many in the fight for land rights.
