Outhouse is a safe space for members of the LGBT+ community and their supporters to inform, meet, organise and make things happen.

Outhouse has a number of unique spaces available to rent all at an affordable price.  So whether it be a formal board meeting or an exhibition in the Piano Nobile Red Room, a more relaxed gathering in our charming library or a larger gathering in our atmospheric basement theatre, you are likely to find a space suitable for your gathering here.  Outhouse also enjoys being centrally located on Capel street just minutes walk from the Luas Red line and major City Centre bus routes.  The team at Outhouse have been helping community groups and organisations manage their events for over 21 years and will work with you to help tailor your event for your needs.
