The new heart of Irish culture in Dublin can be found nestled on South Anne Street, Dublin 2. Magistorium, on the site of the legendary McGonagles, has been reincarnated as a magnificent theatre that will host eclectic performances and cultural events as well as offering guests the option to dine, a nod to its previous life as The Crystal Ballroom.
Magistorium will offer guests the hottest in trad, jazz cabaret and world music. Catering for all tastes, ages and interests, it will become home to Irish music, art and culture, encapsulating the best elements Irish entertainment has to offer presented in a non-stereotypical way.
Magistorium’s first offering reflects our traditional roots and heritage in music.
Ceol will be a weekly event featuring the best of Irish traditional musicians and singers. Kicking off on Thursday the 3rd of November with a much-anticipated performance from Stockton’s Wing, which will feature original performers of 1982 hit single ‘Beautiful Affair’, Mike Hanrahan, Paul Roche, Steve Cooney and Tommy Hayes. They will be joined on-stage by Clare musicians Tara Breen on fiddle, and Karol Lynch on banjo and mandolin. It is set to be an electric performance that is not to be missed.
