Rua Red

RUA RED is a dynamic home for the creation and enjoyment of the arts. 
Along with partner organisations and tenants, the centre hosts a programme of events aimed at all members of the community: locally, nationally and internationally.

Overlooking the Tallaght Luas Stop, RUA RED is committed to providing a diverse, high quality and innovative arts programme. Combined under one roof, this multi-purpose arts resource aims to connect and communicate with you by being a unique driver for wide public access to the arts. 

RUA RED was opened on 5th February 2009, by Mayor Marie Corr, after an investment of almost €10 million in cultural facilities by South Dublin County Council. The centre is the most recent addition to Tallaght’s emerging cultural quarter.

RUA RED is run by South Dublin Arts Centre Company who, along with managing the spaces, have an ambitious programme of arts - predominantly centred around the galleries - that is beginning to thrive and attract attention and respect from across Ireland.
