We also have a large production room for rental to visiting production teams. This includes a state of the art editing suite, a large meeting/work table and a configurable interview space.

We make beautiful films, music, art, publications and memories.



The Building

The Black Gate venue, and media production house was established in 2017. We set out to build a space that was brimming with character - our own unique take on what a truly creative space should be. Over the past three years, it has become an integral part of the Irish music scene, and a creative home to many visiting artists and music lovers. We have welcomed hundreds of musicians through our doors, and there are thousands of beautiful memories now etched into the walls of building. Along the way we established our studios and creative offices in the upper floors of the building, recording many of Ireland’s finest musicians along the way.

We recently launched our own record label, Black Gate Records, with our first signing, the amazingly talented Niamh Regan due to launch her debut album “Hemet” on August 10th this year.
