A dedicated community support helpline has been  established  by Wicklow County Council and supporting stakeholders  to assist at risk members of the public in accessing non-emergency and non-medical supports and advice during the current public health emergency. The confidential phone line service was  established by the new COVID-19 County Wicklow Community Response Forum, which includes over a dozen agencies and organisations.

The Helpline is focused primarily on ensuring that vulnerable members of the community or those living alone can access deliveries of groceries, medicine and fuels.   In some instances, transport of vulnerable persons to test centres will be provided.  The role of the Forum is to ensure that there is a coordinated community response and to enable all voluntary statutory agencies to collaborate in support of our communities and particularly of our most vulnerable members.

The FREE contact number is 1800 868 399 with the lines open from 8am to 8pm seven days a week. Contact email address for this new service is Any vulnerable members of the public or persons wishing to volunteer should be advised to contact this free phone number – 1800 868 399.

A couple of volunteers from each area will act as co-ordinators and allocate the various requests from the support line to the many volunteer individuals and groups in their areas

Whale Theatre

Back to venues

Situated in the heart of Greystones, the whale theatre is a beautifully refurbished intimate theatre with a unique atmosphere and variety of stage options and seat layouts.

The 130-seat whale theatre opened its doors in September 2017. The theatre’s renaissance came about due to Ross McParland’s acquisition in 2014 of an unfinished 1200m2 development incorporating 6 shops and dance studios.

Ross retained renowned Wicklow designer, Sharon Ryle to advise on creating an intimate venue serving as a multipurpose theatre, the results of which have been widely acclaimed. Overwhelming support has led to the decision for Ross to run the venue himself with a small team focused on fostering culture, creativity and community.

The space measures 400m2 and features a state of the art sound system, a full commercial kitchen and flexible stages and layouts.

Located above the beach house at Greystones harbour marina, the Hot Spot Music Club is a centre for live arts, music gigs & private gatherings.

The Hot Spot Music Club specialises in those acts that are a little too big or a little too unique for your average pub rock gig! It has played host to many a special night, with the likes of Hozier, Scullion, Andy Irvine, Declan Sinnott, Kila, Mary Coughlan, Freddie White and Tir na nOg sharing the stage with local luminaries such as Hue Grass and The Universal Funk Orchestra. Hot Spot Music Club crosses all musical divides from gypsy swing to contemporary Spanish flamenco.

Both a weekend cafe –  you won’t want to miss our free Sunday afternoon jam sessions, where anything from tubas to ukuleles can help make your lazy day that little bit hazier – and a live music venue, The Hot Spot Music Club has the look of a speakeasy and the feel of a naughty house session that’s getting just a little out of hand.

It’s also the perfect venue for your own private event, with full PA.
