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

Hi Dr_Direct7 So glad you enjoyed your cinema experience here at Triskel. Did you visit the Crypt while you were here??

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.
