The Dock is housed in the beautiful 19th Century former Courthouse building, overlooking the majestic river Shannon, which has been wonderfully restored into Leitrim’s first integrated centre for the arts.
Carrick-On-Shannon is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the North West of Ireland. Surrounded by stunning lakes, this relatively undiscovered part of Ireland is easy to get to by car, bus, rail or air.
The Dock is located on St. George’s Terrace in Carrick-on-Shannon, just off the Main Street.
Turn off Main Street at the Town Clock on to St. George’s Terrace, past the Post Office and Market Yard. The Dock is at the bend in the road on the right.
