The Dock is Co Leitrim’s Arts Centre. Housed in the beautifully restored courthouse of Carrick-on-Shannon we endeavour to create a welcoming and inspiring space for everyone. Throughout the week we run workshops for local school children, painting classes for active retirement groups, music and painting. Every six weeks the entire town and surrounds are invited to an exhibition opening with a wine reception.
Our black box theatre hosts comedy evenings, music, from traditional Irish music to Latino jazz, local, national and international theatre including magical children’s shows and poetry readings. Upstairs we house three galleries with a vibrant and busy exhibition schedule showing the best in Irish and international art.
Central to The Dock is the location of the Leitrim Design House on the ground floor of the building. The retail and exhibition space showcasing local and international crafts people complements and adds to the creative and imaginative environment of the building. The Dock and The Leitrim Design House work closely in ensuring that Co Leitrim remains the artist friendly county that it is recognised as.
Be it for a place to meet a friend, to go on a first date, have some time out to yourself or just a laugh that you are after … you are most welcome to come and visit The Dock.
