Access

"Draíocht is so easy and accessible for me as I have a disability and the parking bays outside the door really help as I know how I'm going to get in and out of the theatre. Much easier than anywhere in town." Siobhan


Draíocht upholds itself as a model of good practice for accessibility with the entire building designed to be fully accessible by Fingal County Council. We aspire to reaching as wide an audience as possible and our commitment to access for all to the facilities and activities of the Centre forms the backbone of all our endeavours.

Please tell us when booking if you have any special requirements and we will do our very best to facilitate you. Wheelchair spaces in both our Main Auditorium and Studio Theatre must be allocated at the time of booking. They are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis.

There are 2 wheelchair spaces allocated in the Studio Theatre on the first floor, 2 wheelchair spaces on the balcony in the Main Auditorium, and 11 wheelchair spaces on the ground floor in the Main Auditorium. If there are two performances running simultaneously in both auditoria, our policy is to allocate a total of 2 wheelchair spaces on the first floor to allow for safe exit of patrons.

The number of wheelchair spaces available can vary depending on the technical specifications of each performance.
