An Táin Arts Centre is an independent arts space in Dundalk, Co. Louth. We are a venue with two theatres, a gallery, artist studios, a production house, a meeting point for creatives, a supporter of artists and a home for the arts in Dundalk.
Situated along Ireland’s Ancient East, Dundalk has a rich cultural heritage that dates to at least 3500 BC. An Táin Arts Centre derives its name from the Táin Bó Cúailnge or the Cattle raid of Cooley, a legendary story from early Irish literature, which is said to have taken place in the nearby Cooley Peninsula.
Supported by Louth County Council and The Arts Council, An Táin Arts Centre houses a 350 seat main theatre, a 55 seat studio theatre, a visual arts gallery, two workshop spaces and supports Bó Studios a new artist studio in the heart of Dundalk. Our programme is a diverse collection of local arts, national tours, workshops, exhibitions and in-house productions. To view the programme click here.
