    The Mick Lally Theatre, in the heart of Galway city, is a beautiful intimate venue where Druid creates all of its work. It is situated in the heart of Galway in one of the oldest parts of the city.

    Since Druid first opened its doors as a theatre in 1979, world-class performances have taken place there notably Siobhán McKenna as Mommo in Bailegangaire and Mick Lally, Marie Mullen and Sean McGinley in The Playboy of the Western World.

    The theatre also plays host to a wide range of events including festivals, launches, music, comedy, talks and readings, as well as theatre shows from visiting companies. Druid aims to support the development and the promotion of the arts in Galway and hopes that The Mick Lally Theatre can play an active role in this.
