Once an old Presbyterian Church, Nun’s Island Theatre has been transformed into a modern, yet charming 90-seater theatre. Home to the Galway Youth Theatre, in addition to many young professional theatre companies and practitioners in the city, it also hosts concerts, seminars, films and symposia.
It is located in the area of Galway called Nun's Island. This area actually is an island (look carefully at the map), and there has been a community of Poor Clare nuns tucked away at the far end of the Island since the 17th century. They are still an active and much loved community whose monastery is an oasis of peace and nature in the middle of Galway City.
