An Táin Arts Centre is an independent arts space in Dundalk, County Louth, based in the former Táin Theatre, Town Hall, Crowe Street. Dundalk is a market town situated along Ireland’s Ancient East, that has a rich cultural heritage that dates to at least 3500 BC. An Táin Arts Centre derives its name from the Táin Bó Cúailnge or the Cattle raid of Cooley, a legendary story from early Irish literature, which is said to have taken place in the nearby Cooley Penninsula. An epic tale of war, it tells the story of Queen Medbh of Connacht who declares war on Ulster and tries to steal the famous stud bull Donn Cúailnge, but is opposed by warrior, Cúchulainn, who defends Ulster at all costs.

Supported by Louth County Council, An Táin Arts Centre houses a 350 seater main theatre, a 55 seater studio theatre, a visual arts gallery and two workshop spaces. The programme includes a diverse collection of local arts, national tours, workshops, exhibitions and in house productions.
