The Web Theatre is the only privately owned theatre in Ireland and is home to Dreamcatchers Theatre and Educational Drama Company. Our curtains rose for the first time in September 2004.

Our mission is to provide enjoyable entertainment for all ages and to promote the joy that live performance can bring to the community.

We also have a 108 seat cinema where twice a month we host Talking Pictures amongst other events. The next step in our creative journey is to host a wide range of festivals for schools and drama groups.

A very warm welcome – Ian & Candice Foster

Dating back to 1875 the home of the Web Theatre began life as a Good Templar Hall and was then used by The Salvation Army, the most recent use of the building was as a factory.

The downstairs comprises of an office, a coffee bar, three dressing rooms and a bright modern studio.

Upstairs a welcoming foyer leads to a 120 seat raked auditorium. The Victorian décor of red velvet and gold  gives the impression of a by gone era a sharp contrast to the modern vibe of the downstairs area. We can also boasts a well lit car part at the rear of the premises and a lift ensures that everyone can access the building.

The theatre is now used by a wide range of local community groups who are able to benefit from a central location and high quality venue. Every year since its inception the theatre has increased the opportunities to see a wide range of professional and amateur theatre.
