Triskel Arts Centre was founded in 1978, and moved to its current home in Tobin Street in 1986. Triskel celebrated its Thirtieth Anniversary in 2008. 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

The café is underrated, the food is fabulous here. Small menu but great care is obviously taken by the chef - even sandwiches are delicious!. I would recommend the eggs en cocotte for breakfast and definitely try the soup.

As a former church this is a unique and lovely venue to watch films, right in the city centre. Also has a friendly cafe and bar.

Have gone to 3 films in the Triskel now and every time it has been an enjoyable evening. The setting is lovely. The sound and picture quality is decent and you can enjoy a drink while watching the film. The pews are cushioned but can become quite uncomfortable by the end!! Apart from that, it's definitely worth a try if... More

We went to Pulses of Tradition in the Triskel and it was fantastic, the show is amazing but the venue is spectacular and well worth a visit to any concert there

This show should not be missed if you want to have a first rate Irish experience. Excellent,multi- talented musicians who entertained with dance and song and involve the audience with their Irish humour.

Brilliant idea to convert this Church of Ireland setting into an all purpose Arts Centre covering visual arts, theatre and music of all genres. Lovely place to go and just soak up the local colour too!

In 2009 the 18th century Christchurch, was restored by Cork City Council, and given to Triskel to manage as the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Cork ~ primarily as a Theatre Development Centre ~ unfortunately it is a very poor attempt in a wonderful building in a brilliant location

Attended a film event in Triskel. The pews and stained glass, everything that would have made this building a beautiful church, remains intact and it is a gorgeous and unusual venue for all sorts of events like concerts etc. However I would love to have the guided tour and learned more about the crypt and various artifacts that are scattered...
