About
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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I avail of any opportunity to visit this beautiful Venue. The intimate coffee/wine Dock is a welcome stop off before the Cinema. The patrons who visit appear to have a genuine appreciation of the arts, as there is no popcorn munching, unwrapping of sweets or mobile phone intrusions. The City Centre venue makes for convenience and the staff are always helpful and pleasant. We look forward to receiving the weekly Schedules so that we can plan our next visit.

I popped into the Triskel to see that what was once a great exhibition space on the top floor is now a yoga room and its visual arts gallery is now demoted to a small room on the second floor. What an absolute shame.

As we're a multi-functional space, we're constantly changing things around and welcoming The Collective Cork to the Triskel family felt like a good fit. The Gallery Space is smaller and that offers its own challenges, which the artists who have exhibited there have embraced with open arms. We don't see it as a demotion of our visual arts space, simply something different. We hope you'll come back to see what the next artist does with the space.

This is the oldest church site within the walled city of Cork. But the area has been proven to be extremely rich in Hibernian-Norse heritage and archaeology. The church is now a theatre offering cinema, music and other theatrical shows. Well worth visiting.

Kit Downes and his church organ seemingly taking its last breath was one of the oddest musical experiences you could ever have: Tord Gustavsen was magisterial, as ever - if darker than usual. Altogether inspiring.

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!

Art house cinema/music venue in an atmospheric old church, Art Gallery on the top floor and a busy little cafe/bar with the ruins of a 1,000 year old church visible in the basement makes this Arts Centre a must visit! The cinema always shows very interesting and eclectic films from around the world and hosts great visual Art exhibitions. A wonderful asset for Cork city.
