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.

Firkin Crane is open for ACCESS ONLY for Residency Artists, Teachers, Students and Professional Training.

In order to do this we are asking all Visitors, User Group leaders and their staff to wear face masks or face shields, when entering and moving through the Firkin Crane building, our staff will be doing the same. Whilst at Firkin Crane we ask that you continue to observe social distancing, regular hand hygiene and observe cough/sneeze etiquette.

Please help us to help you stay safe.
