Welcome to Birr Theatre & Arts Centre

Nestled in the tree lined Oxmantown Mall, Birr Theatre and Arts Centre is a dedicated purpose built theatre which dates from 1888.  Having fallen into disrepair during the eighties and nineties, Birr Stage Guild set about restoring and refurbishing this Victorian theatre building to its original glory with seating capacity for 220 with both public funds and local fundraising. 

It is now a high quality facility, which provides a base for year round development of the Arts in Birr and environs, the rest of the County of Offaly and the wider region.
