The Amharclann aims to nurture and preserve the Irish language, culture and arts. We are the only Irish language theatre in the country that is situated in the heart of the Gaeltacht. Gweedore is a deep well for the Irish language, and this depth and wealth of language contributes to the fact that the local population are particularly talented and creative. The Amharclann provides an exemplary artistic hub where this unique community can express their creative life.
The artists of this region are renowned worldwide, and their creativity was nurtured in the community from a young age. The Amharclann understands how important it is to give a stage to the next generation, to allow them to practice and improve their craft. We also recognise how important it is that our local talent gets to share a stage with national and international talent, as this inspires and nurtures further artistic growth.
