The Space

The Courthouse Arts Centre is situated in the heart of Tinahely village in the south of Wicklow. It has long been an important geographical landmark in the county and is a uniquely visible and valuable asset in the cultural landscape of south Wicklow, north Carlow and north Wexford.


The venue offers comprehensive artistic and outreach programmes in an atmospheric and intimate space, hosting a wide variety of multi-disciplinary arts events and workshops. Our programme includes: Theatre, Dance, Music, Film, Visual Arts, Comedy, Literature and an Education/Outreach programme. We are committed to offering emerging artists a platform to showcase their work.

The Courthouse Arts Centre is a flexible performance space and Gallery. As a former Courthouse it has a large downstairs space and a gallery upstairs where audiences enjoy a bird’s eye view of any performance.

The flexibility of the space allows for variations in how it is employed. This has been appreciated and exploited by many artists and performers using the space. Free form dance performances, theatre in the round, staged events and workshops have all been held here as have more intimate candle lit events such as the Courthouse Café.

We use both the upstairs and the downstairs area as the Gallery space. Click here to view the gallery plans.

The main space, downstairs, is wheelchair accessible. 

We welcome all art forms and are always open to new and innovative proposals. To contact the Courthouse Click Here
