Small theatre in the lovely town of Sligo. Friendly, cosy & great atmosphere. Size of theatre makes you think the performance is happening in your own living room. Ralph McTell put on a terrific performance

A lovely little venue, a great view from every seat! Great acoustics and an intimate concert location. They have a bar and snacks available for purchase before and after each event.

Very interesting sculptures inspired by Yeats. Beautiful to look at as was the rest of the building. It's down by the river front rather than in the centre of town. Worth a visit, free entrance and the sculptor was there to explain the exhibition.

An excellent way to book Sligo live tickets,costing 1 euro a ticket compared to 6 online.And hopefully supporting local theatre as well in the process.
