We need your help!
The Sirius Arts Centre is housed in a unique heritage building that is over one hundred and sixty years old, right at the water's edge in Cobh harbour.
In 2004 an engineering assessment of the state of the building showed it to be in urgent need of further restorative works.
To this end the Board of Directors for the Sirius Arts Centre have drafted a long term plan. Emergency works to the foundation and underpinning of the building were carried out at the end of 2004 with the support of the Heritage Council, Cork County Council, the Department of Environment (through the National Development Plan), Cobh Urban District Council and fundraising through programmed events.
Further work to restore the precious mosaic on the balcony of the building (with the Royal Cork Yacht Club Symbol at its centre) was completed in 2006. Works to the currently derelict East Wing have begun with expected completion in 2020.
