Arts & Entertainment

The Arts and Entertainment sector in Ireland is rich, diverse and inclusive and has seen significant investment and development from the government in recent years. 

The range of the sector includes commercial interests to publicly funded organisations and stakeholders such as the Arts Council, local authorities, the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and many other local bodies. Its impact contributes significantly to tourism, employment and the wider economy and promotes our artists and creatives worldwide through touring and performances. 

The Covid-19 pandemic had a detrimental effect with all participators and stakeholders anxious to resume filling theatres, welcoming visitors to museums and venues and entertaining audiences at home and aboard.
