Welcome to Firkin Crane

Firkin Crane, the home of dance in Cork, is a place where dance artists, dance audiences and dance enthusiasts can make, see and join in dance of all kinds. Firkin Crane is unique as a resource for dance in Ireland in that it has a stage dedicated to the year-round presentation of dance.  In addition it has smaller performance spaces, an exhibition space and four dance studios, all housed in a distinctive heritage building.  These resources are important because of what they support people to do: to experiment with, to create and to enjoy dance in its many forms.
