Westside Resource Centre - Welcome

photo of Westside Resource CentreWestside Resource Centre CLG is a community-based organisation with charitable status. We opened our doors on Seamus Quirke Road in 2001, having moved from the old premises in the Westside Enterprise Park. The new Westside Resource Centre building was officially opened on 6th June of that year by President Mary McAleese. Westside Resource Centre is managed by a Voluntary Committee on behalf of the Local Community.

Westside Resource Centre provides fully serviced offices to a variety of services and local branches of national organisations.

We support community work in the local area and are very much involved with community initiatives such as Westside Arts Festival, Westside Christmas Market, Social Inclusion Week and Culture Night.

Westside Resource Centre has a range of meeting rooms available for hire by community, voluntary and support groups. Over thirty local and national organisations use the resource centre's facilities throughout the year.

The resource centre serves as a base for a number of local community groups such as Westside Community Patchers, Westside Men's Club, Westside Craft Group and Westside Community Organic Garden.

Westside Christmas Market & Family Day is back!

We are delighted to welcome back Westside Christmas Market & Family Day to our calendar of activities. The event takes place on Thursday 8th Dec 2022 and all are welcome to come along and join in the festivities.

The Christmas Market itself will take place here in Westside Resource Centre with a range of crafts and goodies specially produced for the occasion. The market runs from 10:30 in the morning until 3:00 in the afternoon. All of those attending the market can avail of complimentary refreshments at our popup Community Café.

Throughout the day, there will be a number of free activities taking place. There will be Festive Music at Westside Public Library (11:00am to 12:00pm), Storytime for Little Ones at 1:30pm and a Children’s Craft Session at 3:00pm. Proceedings at Westside Resource Centre will culminate with a session of traditional Irish music from 3:15 to 4:15pm and this will be concluded with the draw for our bumper Christmas Raffle. The finale of the whole day will take place at 4.30pm in Westside Library with a jazzy seasonal concert… just the tonic for a winter's evening!
