The Cork Arts Theatre (CAT) is perhaps the smallest in the City. It seats about 100, is reasonably comfortable, has a small bar and you may also call in for a coffee if you are passing during the day.
Aside from plays, CAT may be used for recitals, lunchtime events, poetry readings, lectures and celebrity evenings. I have been there a few times and my last visit was to see an Evening with Graham Poll, the English referee.
The current play, When I was God, by Corkman Conal Creedon, is about a referee and is making a return home after outings in places such as China and the US. Worth a visit by all accounts.021 450 5624
