Default ★New Venue Announcement!★ Sea Church, Ballycotton.

★★ NEW VENUE ANNOUNCEMENT! ★★

Exciting times ahead at Sea Church, Ballycotton, East Cork. Opening Feb 2020 with shows to be announced very soo.

An new ambitious live music venue in Ballycotton, East Cork, Sea Church is a multidisciplinary space housed in a fully refurbished Church of Ireland church. A spectacular building inside with a coastal location, Sea Church is a unique music venue for emerging talent to make their mark and for household names to break the rules.

With light streaming through its beautiful stained-glass windows behind the stage, Sea Church is tailor-made for live music. Natural church acoustics and an interior that makes for a looming atmosphere, the venue has certain wow factors for first-time punters. An intimate 120-person capacity, great sound and impressive lighting, the venue hopes to form part of the fabric of Irish music culture.

A beautiful venue can elevate a good gig and Sea Church is no different. A one-of-a-kind, intimate venue with a pristine sound system, Sea Church is an artist’s playground and Cork’s latest live music destination. With a high-end d&b audio system, full in-house DJ equipment, large outdoor terrace suitable for catering, as well as a full bar, Sea Church will play host to world-class acts.

Working with Coughlan’s Live Promotions, their programme will invite some of Ireland’s musical heavyweights as well as artists from all over the world come to play their most special shows. Sea Church is also a venue for new emerging artist’s to launch EP’s, albums and to showcase record label performances.


Sea Church - background/story
In 2018, Ballycotton-born Pearse Flynn set out to realise a dream when he purchased the St Colman’s church from American vendors. A multi-million euro revamp began to take this diamond in the rough from decline and into restoration. Special care was taken in the renovation of the church and a huge amount of time, energy and passion have been dedicated over a two-year restoration programme.
As a result, Sea Church maintains its distinctive design attributes. This project has required attention to detail and the reuse of existing fixtures & features, including the pointed arch stained-glass windows, the slate roof, wrought-iron gates and oak panels. The bell tower has also been repaired and revived so that it remains in situ. The church’s timber staircase has been restored to original specification. Paying due reverence to the church’s interiors, everything new that has been added works with the old, including a hanging light fitting that casts beautifully over the interior.


As St Colman’s was a protected building, conservation of the building was a key element. It has been an arduous process, respecting the historic site while trying to build a live music venue.
