Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre, county kilkenny
The Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre is Kilkenny’s outdoor auditorium and it is used many times during the year for outdoor performances. Located beneath Ballykeeffe Woods and Nature Reserve, I have visited this area many times to walk our dog and get some exercise.
The Amphitheatre was build in the remains of an old slate quarry, for a longtime the performances were held in the open air but very recently it boasts a state of the art canopy which fits within the worked-out quarry.
The acoustics and setting are designed to provide for a great outdoor theatre and music performance.
When the new canopy first appeared, I took the following images.
