Hello and welcome to our new blog. This is where you’ll be able to keep up with all the exciting things we have going on in the centre and news about any upcoming theatre shows, musical events and movies.
A couple of weeks ago Bernadette (and her camera) from Google Maps visited us to help create a virtual tour of the building, and we’re delighted to announce the virtual tour feature is now live on our site.
If you’re new to the town (or you’re anything like me) you’ll love being able to take a look inside and have a simulated walk around our centre. Our virtual tour takes in all the main parts of the building including our 194 seat theatre, our training room and the Castle Room. But you’ll also get a little sneak peek behind the scenes too and get to see inside the dressing rooms.
It’s a great way to familiarise yourself with the building before coming to one of the many events we have going on throughout the year.
The building was constructed in 1895 as a 3-bay building with fine round-headed doors and windows. It was designed by the then Town Engineer Robert Gill (grandfather of Tomás Mac Giolla TD and former Lord Mayor of Dublin).
It housed Nenagh public library until the early 1980’s and was the home of Nenagh Town Council until 2005. The building was refurbished to include a 194 seater theatre and studio spaces available for local community groups. It was re-opened as Nenagh Arts Centre in 2010.
To start your virtual tour click HERE or on the virtual tour tab at the top of this page.
To navigate your way just click on the arrows and you will be guided through the building. You can also click on 1-2-3 at the side of the screen to be taken into different rooms.
We hope you enjoy looking around and that you’ll come to visit us very soon to take in one of our Upcoming Events.
