Galway has a long and rich heritage of theatre, drama and street festivals. Its first theatre was established in Kirwan's Lane, in the mediaeval quarter, by Richard Martin, founder of the RSPCA, and Wolfe Tone. But what might surprise you is the sheer variety of what's on offer. From the innovative street theatre and marionation of Macnas, to the cutting edge presentations of Druid, the theatre company of choice for exciting new playwrights, the cultural heritage of Galway is today expressed in remarkable ways. In fact, the dramatic culture of Galway has not only taken its place among the finest in Ireland, it's gone beyond, bringing the best of Irish drama to the world. Now, you have the opportunity to see it at home, in Galway.
