VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art together with the George Bernard Shaw Theatre presents the work of a balanced mixture of local, national international artists. It is the mission of the centre to be rooted locally but known internationally, so that our most immediate community is integrated and linked in a meaningful way into the programmes we present. Our four gallery spaces have been designed to the highest specifications allowing for flexible and innovative displays which give artists an opportunity to flex their creativity and expand the scale and materials they use to make their work. Our main gallery is unrivalled in Ireland for its size, light, clarity and proportions and will offer both a challenge and opportunity to any artist who takes it on. Two other white cube spaces, the Studio Digital Galleries allow for a variety of uses, including the display of audio-visual work and the presence of an artist in residence. VISUAL can also use other spaces including the Lobby Gallery and in-between spaces to present work on a variety of scales.

The GB Shaw Theatre is a 290 seat state-of-the-art theatre presenting the best of local, national and international touring work in theatre, dance, music, opera, comedy and arthouse film.
