& Arts Centre
Nestled in the tree-lined Oxmantown Mall, Birr Theatre & Arts Centre is a dedicated purpose-built theatre which dates from 1888. Having fallen into disrepair during the 80’s and 90’s, Birr Stage Guild set about restoring and refurbishing this Victorian theatre building to its original glory with seating capacity for 220 with both public funds and local fundraising.
It’s now a high-quality facility, which provides a base for year-round development of the Arts in Birr and environs, the rest of the County of Offaly and the wider region. Birr Theatre & Arts Centre is accessible for wheelchair users and has ample, free on-street parking.
