Great facility for the town and some really interesting pieces on display when we visited. There was a documentary on showing the history of the beet factory in Carlow which was very interesting. Wonderful opportunity to see the work of local artists.

I visited for a live music performance and the sound was great. Also impressed by the amount of parking. Ticket prices are always a bargain.
