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.


Following the directives issued by the government, we have postponed all performances at Firkin Crane for the time being.

As per the governement directive, and as Firkin Crane is a cultural institution, the building will be closed to the public until Monday 20th April.

The team at Firkin Crane will be working remotely therefore reception and box office will not be manned over that period.

For queries you can message us at info@firkincrane.ie and we’ll get back to you in due course.

For Box Office queries contact boxoffice@firkincrane.ie
