Live Music Venue

Since the Crane Lane Theatre opened its doors in the early nougties, it has been the host to some of the biggest names in blues, jazz and indie music, including; New Model Army, James Taylor Quartet, Preachers Son and many, many more.

This exciting birth of a new kind of music venue, at a time of musical revolution in Cork has led to many memorable nights at the Crane Lane Theatre. As well as music, the Crane Lane has seen many great theatrical acts and has been a host venue in celebrating Cork’s most iconic events, including The Cork Jazz festival and St. Patricks Day festivities.

The venue hosts live music 7 days a week, and whether it is the return of the Crane Lane’s original folk and blues acts or tomorrow’s next big thing, we are sure our eclectic mix has something for everyone’s taste .
