Highlanes Municipal Art Gallery
Imaginatively ensconced in a 200 year-old Franciscan church in the heart of Drogheda, the Highlanes is a beautiful art gallery which combines a programme of contemporary exhibitions with being the home of the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection. The Highlanes has developed a reputation for adventurous, cutting edge work, and is complemented by Andersons Café and the Louth Craftmark shop, which specialises in work by designers and craftmakers from the region.
Dundalk has a rich heritage of amateur drama and musicals, and is proud of its performing traditions. Many local heroes and international stars have graced the stage of the Town Hall Theatre, now called An Táin, not least of whom was a then little-known singer called Luciano Pavarotti! After a major technical and facilities up-grade in 2002, An Táin is now a 360-seat proscenium arch performance venue, with a bar and a smaller studio venue.
County Museum Dundalk
Louth’s past, both mythological and historical, is a dazzling tapestry of a story, with a cast of Celts, Vikings, Normans, Planters and sundry visitors, all of whom have played their part in making the county the wee gem it is today.

Housed in a beautifully restored late-18th century bonded warehouse, the Museum also plays host to concerts, poetry readings, lectures and art exhibitions.
