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

I absolutely love what has been done with Triskel Chrstchurch. Not sure of any other cinemas that are located in a church. Some people complain about the seats when watching a movie here but I honestly don't know why. I have never found it uncomfortable and I go to A LOT of movies here. The choice of movies is excellent,... More

My family and I visited Christchurch in Cork City during Heritage Week. It is located beside the gorgeous Bishop Lucey Park which is a very central location. It faces South Main St and backs onto Grand Parade which is so-called because the British army used to parade their horses there when the Republic of Ireland was under British rule. The... More

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.
