Our Íontas Theatre
Íontas Arts & Community Resource Centre is a one-stop-shop centre of excellence - accessible to all regardless of background, race, religion, gender and age.
The aim of Iontas is to provide, promote and foster the vision and space for initiative and innovation in personal and community development. This happens through all kinds of educational, creative and artistic endeavours.
Íontas offers the space to host a whole range of courses which benefit the individual both personally and socially, to ensure that no person need feel excluded and marginalized by society – every single person who steps through the door of this Íontas is made to feel important and special and everyone who works in this building strives to ensure that we have something to offer everyone.
