Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe, meaning “Galway Theatre”, is the national Irish language theatre of Ireland. It was founded in 1928. 

The theatre itself is actually built on the ruins of the city’s original Augustinian friary. The rear wall incorporates a wall from this friary, including some carved stone window frames. 

Throughout the year the theatre is the venue to many drama and music productions along with occasionally screening international films.
