Facility Fee

From January 2023, all ticket prices at Mermaid will include a facility fee of €1. 

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.


Where there are two prices available for an event, the concession rate (lower rate) is available to students, senior citizens, unwaged and those living with a disability and/ or chronic illness. Concession rates are available on the majority of events. Concession rate tickets can be purchased online, with our Box Office team in person or by phone on 01 272 4030.

Carers tickets

Carers tickets are available on Mermaid events including cinema. However, different companies and promoters who we work with may have different policies regarding their carers tickets. This means that sometimes you may receive a free carer seat for one show but not for another. As this changes on an event by event basis, it is best to check the event you are interested in with our Box Office team. Carers tickets are not available to purchase online but can be booked with our Box Office team in person or by phone on 01 272 40 30.

Please contact our Box Office team for more information on 01 272 4030 or email info@mermaidartscentre.ie.

We all enjoy nights out with friends. At Mermaid groups of ten or more may get a 10% discount on selected shows. Please enquire at Box Office at the time of booking to check if the group rate is available for your chosen show.

One teacher goes free with every ten pupils booked for a schools event at Mermaid. See what schools events we having coming up. Alternatively if you would like to organise a special event for your school such as a film screening or concert please contact info@mermaidartscentre.ie
