Welcome back to Draíocht!

We are delighted to reopen our Box Office and Betelnut Cafe from Monday 29 June 2020.
We’ve really missed you and are looking forward to seeing you again.

   Box Office Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 10am-6pm
   Betelnut Cafe Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 9am-4pm

As part of our commitment to the continued well-being of visitors, artists and staff, in ongoing efforts to assist our community in preventing the spread of Covid-19, we have adhered to Government Guidelines and implemented the enhanced protocols and procedures you will notice during your visit. Our staff are here to assist you with a safe journey through the venue, so please ask for assistance if necessary. 

  • We are promoting a one-way experience that reinforces social distancing guidelines. ‘Keep Right’ at all times.
  • We will endeavour to keep queues as short as possible & appreciate your patience.
  • Please make use of our hand sanitising stations at entry & exit points.
  • Additional hand sanitiser dispensers are placed at key points throughout the building.
  • We have implemented protective screens at till points.
  • Please use contactless card payments where possible. Keypads will be wiped down after each customer.
  • We are frequently cleaning and disinfecting throughout the building and staff are taking regular hand-washing breaks.
  • We have removed excess furniture from the foyer to limit congestion and dwell time.
  • We have decommissioned every second toilet and hand basin, to maintain social distancing and increased hygiene protocols in these areas. Toilets are for customer use only.
  • Additional signage to promote hand washing and best hygiene practices have been posted throughout the building.
  • Additional training and PPE have been provided for all staff. 

What can you do to help us promote a healthy environment?

We are doing all we can to promote a healthy environment, and in doing so, we also rely on you to keep recommended self-care in mind for your safety and the safety of others. Throughout your experience, please be mindful of current Government and HSE guidelines and public health recommendations, which we are referring to daily to update our Guidelines when necessary.

  • Know the symptoms: If you or a member of your party has a temperature or is feeling unwell, please visit us another time. 
  • Wash your hands often, using soap and water, for a minimum of 20 seconds.
  • Help us promote social distancing by distancing yourself appropriately from others who are not part of your party and do not shake hands or hug.
  • Please keep your party together, especially if there are children in your group, to help maintain social distancing with other visitors.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing and discard used tissues safely.

Your support is greatly appreciated and we look forward to providing a safe experience for all our visitors.
It’s great to see you again!
The Team at Draíocht
