St Michael's Hall is a beautifully assigned rural theatre in the West Waterford village of Ballyduff. It boasts significant technical and staging facilities including an 8m x 8m stage and a top-of-the-range lighting rig. It also has a 270 seat auditorium including a tiered retractable seating system containing 128 seats. There is also a wonderful foyer area where the Festival Club each night will provide lightness for the soul, soothing for the thirst and a platform for tales, fabrications, merriment and excuses. The Hall itself is situated on a beautiful prospect over the River Blackwater just as the road to Lismore leaves the village. Believe me, if you have been lucky enough to arrive in Ballyduff, just ask. Everybody in the village knows where "The Hall" is.

If using Sat Nav, be careful when inputting. There are at least three Ballyduffs in County Waterford. In particular, there is a village called Ballyduff about five miles from Waterford City. This is not us! Coordinates 52° 08' 51" N, 8° 03' 06" W will get you pretty near the correct Ballyduff! more
