Not a church

It's an art gallery and a music venue. There is a bar with a restaurant in it too. The food is good.

Overview

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 regularly attend showings in the Triskel and every time it has been a hugely enjoyable evening. The setting is very unique and the sound and picture quality is quite good. The independent films are fabulous and I always look forward to returning!

Here we have an arts centre built into a 17th century church which was itself built on a Viking church site. The old wooden pews and interior are still in place while you can see some ancient memorials in the crypt. And of course it...More

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...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.
