It's like Ballina Arts Centre cherry-picked the nicest people from the surrounding areas and had them all come work there. A lovely atmosphere with excellent galleries, top theatre & a rake of wonderful workshops. I can't figure out if the River Moy flows by it or if it flows by the River Moy.

I visited this venue out of hours but was very taken by the range of events and upcoming schedule. You will enjoy the setting right beside the river and watching the fish jump at certain times.

Love going to Ballina Arts Centre for gigs, exhibitions, film club, workshops - in fact whatever's on! Don't get there as often as I'd like (goddamn recession) only as often as I can. Highlight for me was sitting in the second row (with nobody in front) as Camille O'Sullivan did that magical, marvellous, crazy, amazing thing that she does on... More

What a beautiful arts centre and very welcoming. Nice way to spend an afternoon or evening. Didn't see a show but got a tour of the place, everyone really enjoyed it. Parking is good and easy to find too.

I must say, the Ballina Arts centre is a great addition to Ballina. I have attended a couple of Concerts there in the past few months and really enjoyed the experience. It's proximity to the Town centre and the local Bars and Restaurants is very handy indeed. Well done to all involved.
