Refurbishment began in 2002 and Òran Mór opened its doors in June 2004. Since then it has introduced a varying programme of events including new musical talents, comedy nights, regular club nights and, of course, the hugely successful A Play, A Pie and A Pint series.

Òran Mór has also successfully hosted a range of private events including product launches, awards' dinners, weddings, fashion shows and conferences.
