The ground floor of An Táin Arts Centre is fully accessible, with lift access to the Basement Gallery, both workshop spaces and a wheelchair accessible toilet. Unfortunately, balcony seating in the main theatre and the balcony foyer are not serviced by a lift and therefore are not wheelchair accessible. Please let us know when booking if you have any special accommodation requirements (e.g. wheelchair access, medical needs, hearing or sight impairment).

There are limited wheelchair spaces in the main theatre (in front of row A) and in the studio theatre (in the front row, and back row) and these can be booked through our box office. Passes for wheelchair spaces are complimentary.

In the main theatre, our box office reserves several seats in row A for patrons who have mobility issues. These seats can be booked through our box office, as they are not put on general sale until the week of the event. If you haven’t been here before, please feel free to ask us for advice on choosing a seat to suit your needs.

An Táin Arts Centre has a limited number of personal hearing aids. Please contact our box office in advance of booking and at least one week prior to the show date to check compatibility and availability for your chosen event.
