Feasibility Study for Mars Cinema, Kilrush

4 April 2024

Following a public tender process, Tourism Development International (TDI) commenced the Mars Cinema feasibility study in January 2024.

Mars Cinema

The aim of the feasibility study is to examine if there is a market opportunity to develop a viable attraction / business at the former Mars Cinema buildings and lands, for the benefit of the local community and visitors alike.

A future concept plan for Mars Cinema must be fully informed by the local economic context and the future public realm plans for Kilrush.

A situation analysis is under way, designed to inform a future use of the former cinema based on market demand, ongoing town planning considerations and new area and town development initiatives.

During quarter 2 of 2024, a public meeting will be held in Kilrush to outline the findings of the situation analysis and to seek community feedback on the emerging concept/s for the former Mars Cinema.
