Mermaid’s Vision

Mermaid County Wicklow Arts Centre exists to enrich the communities of county Wicklow by encouraging and providing the best artistic experiences as a leading centre for the arts in Ireland.

Since our launch in August 2002, Mermaid Arts Centre has made a splash in the artistic and cultural life of County Wicklow. We present an ambitious programme of performance including innovative dance, spellbinding theatre, cutting edge music and art-house cinema.

Mermaid Arts Centre serves a population of 115,000 people and aims to act as a platform for local artistic groups providing them with a performance space.

Mermaid also serves the Wicklow audience for professional artistic events from Ireland and further afield.

As part of the Mermaid Commission series and residencies new artistic work has originated at Mermaid and gone on to have a life elsewhere.

Mermaid gallery exhibits work by some of the finest artists from Wicklow and further afield, both national and international.

We look forward to welcoming you to our state of the art building where you can simply drop in for a coffee and visit our gallery or have a great night’s entertainment. Whether it is a free art exhibition or one of our Monday night art house films for just €8 a trip to Mermaid Arts Centre is always within budget.

We hope to welcome to Mermaid Arts Centre soon.

Mermaid is generously funded by

The Arts Council, Wicklow County Council and Bray Town Council.
