Glór Theatre, stylished as glór, formerly Glór Irish Music Centre, is a concert and events venue in Ireland, located in the town of Ennis County Clare.[1] Its capacity allows for 485 people for seated performances.[2]

Since opening in 2001 the venue has become a setting for a wide range of acts including stand-up comedy, drama performances, art exhibitions and a variety of concerts.

glór was designed by Des McMahon of Gilroy McMahon Architects. The challenge was to create a building which would allow the user to experience Irish music in an intimate and real way, whether in a small group or as a member of a large audience.[3]

Awards[edit]

It was nominated for the Munster category of the IMRO Live Music Venue of the Year Award in 2008 and won that award in 2012.[citation needed]
