Spike Island Cinema Club

Spike Island Cinema Club is a unique Irish cinema venue that lets you watch your favourite movies in a stunning setting - our super atmospheric former childrens prison.

Your journey starts with a ferry trip across Cork harbour, the world's second largest natural harbour that is beautiful by day and by night.  Once on the island our guides will give you a guided tour from the pier to the Fortress, with your tour tying in with the subject matter of the movie you have come to watch.  You'll see the abandoned villages and high Fort walls that make Spike island, once the world's largest prison, so famous and so notrious.  Once we make the Fortress you get a chance to purchase some snacks, then it is on to your prison cell theatre for an unforgettable experience. 

Once your movie is complete, our guides then take you on a short After Dark tour of our Former Island Prison, and you'll walk abandoned corridors, sit in solitary cells and experience a place of Punishment that was once known as Ireland's Hell.  This is an experience unlike any other with history, mystery and an authenticity you wont find anywhere else.  

Will you escape from Fortress Spike?  Join us and discover Ireland's Alcatraz.
