  • Whilst we recognise that mask wearing is no longer a mandatory requirement and is a personal choice, for the safety of others we are encouraging all patrons to wear masks when moving throughout the building and during performances. These can be removed for the consumption of food and drinks as appropriate, or where medical exemptions apply.
  • We respectfully ask if you feel unwell, or have been in contact with someone who is unwell, please do not attend the centre or any of our performances. Please refer to HSE.ie for full public health advice on Covid-19 and telephone Box Office who will offer you a credit note.
  • We are still providing hand sanitiser dispensers for your safety. Please make use of our hand sanitising stations at entry & exit points.
  • To keep you safe we have reviewed ventilation in our auditorium. We’re happy to report that the auditorium is very well ventilated: Mermaid’s air handling system completes 20-30 full air changes per hour with unfiltered fresh air – well above the recommended 12-14 changes for equivalent spaces.
  • Our staff have been updated and trained on all the necessary procedures and policies so do please co-operate with their requests to ensure a safe and pleasant experience for everyone.
  • Sit back and enjoy the show!

Facility Fee

From January 2023, all ticket prices at Mermaid will include a facility fee of €1, with the exception of cinema tickets.

Running our business efficiently and sustainably is a core value at Mermaid Arts Centre, and one of our current strategic goals is to maximise Mermaid’s impact through ensuring we have the capacity and resources to deliver on our ambitions sustainably.

The facility fee will contribute to the costs of refurbishing our existing infrastructure (for example, making the switch to LED lamps which are more energy efficient) and will support the long-term sustainability of our venue. In turn, this will ensure we can continue to deliver the highest quality experience for our audiences, performers, and producers.

The facility fee of €1.00 per ticket will be integrated into the price advertised. The price listed on all marketing materials including our website, flyer and posters will already include the facility fee and there will no extras added to the final amount in your basket or at the box office. This fee is non-refundable.

Your ongoing support for Mermaid Arts Centre is deeply appreciated.


Concessions are available to students, senior citizens and the unemployed on the majority of performances.
