When visiting VISUAL please bring your own wired headphones to listen to the videos in the exhibition. This is in order to lower the risk of infection.

The over-ear type is advised, because they are better at blocking other noise. Only wired headphones will work, with 3.5mm jacks.

Inexpensive headphones can be purchased at the Reception desk.


If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever or cough, or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, please stay at home.

The safety of our visitors and staff is our highest priority so measures are in place in line with current public health advice to make sure that you enjoy VISUAL safely in a relaxed atmosphere.

We are asking all visitors to the gallery to book free tickets online or over the phone in advance for an allocated 1hr 45min time slot. Booking times are 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

This will help us manage the number of people visiting, so you can visit VISUAL exhibitions safely.

When you make a booking, we will ask for your contact details. This is for contact tracing to help reduce the risk of a local outbreak of COVID-19. We will keep your contact details for 90 days from the date of your visit and only pass them on to the HSE for contact tracing in the event of a fellow visitor testing positive for COVID-19. We will not use these contact details for any other reason.

Woman in the Machine is part of Carlow Arts Festival 2021, VISUAL Carlow’s Summer Programme and presented as part of Brightening Air | Coiscéim Coiligh, a nationwide, ten day season of arts experiences brought to you by the Arts Council.
