''A brief and sincere note on behalf of Ultimate Weddings Live to thank you and the excellent team at The Hub for ensuring our wedding expo was a huge success. The attention to detail, support and co-operation at all times was appreciated. The service and constant attention by Sarah and Mick throughout the weekend was wonderful and the delicious catering created by Langtons for our exhibitor reception was a truly magical end to a very busy day. May I also thank those behind the scenes for the excellent service and professionalism both in the lead-up to the event and throughout the weekend.''Joanne Maloney, Event Manager
Ultimate Weddings Live
We've put on a number of shows in The Hub so far and have, from the outset, been impressed with easy it is working with Sarah and the team in there. Nothing is too much trouble and nothing is hassle. We like to work that way ourselves but it's not often you see the same approach from the venue side. There's a great 'team' mindset for each event which sees both our team and The Hub staff all pulling in the same direction to make sure the attendees get the best experience possible. Beyond that, the venue itself is great, lending itself to a variety of formats and layouts making it a great option for any type of show or event.''
Mark Breen, Managing Director
What a superb new venue for Kilkenny. Congratulations to everyone concerned. To those who had the foresight to create this new space, to the staff who pulled out all the stops… As always, the Kilkenny audience created a wonderful atmosphere. Declan and I had a great night and we look forward to our next gig at The Hub. Thumbs up to The Cats."

"The Hub is a really exciting new venue, not just for Kilkenny, but the whole south-east. It is a space of jaw-dropping proportions, but with the atmosphere and acoustics of the most intimate and personal of venues. It was a real thrill to see Mercury Rev perform there as part of this year's Arts Festival and to watch so many people experience them in this dynamic new arena. The facilities The Hub has to offer are second to none and will certainly establish it as a key location on the live music circuit. This is a venue that can comfortably accommodate any high profile act, as was evidenced by Mercury Rev's stunning performance in August."

"On behalf of the Beef Expo Committee, and on my own behalf, a very sincere thank you to you for your assistance to us in delivering a great event at Beef Expo. We've had so many positive comments on the event, and the consensus is that what made it such a success is that everything went well - not just any one part of it."
Gerard Brickley, Bord Bia, Chairman
Beef Expo Organising Committee
"Mercury Rev's performance at The Hub was phenomenal, a definite highlight of this year's Arts Festival.. the venue played no small part in making it such an unforgettable experience, creating the perfect atmosphere. Kilkenny can no longer complain about not having the facilities to host top quality acts all year through, so here's hoping this is the start of many more memorable nights to come."
John Cleary, Acting Editor
"The Hub in Kilkenny is an incredibly exciting new space which offers a multitude of possibilities to event organisers of all descriptions. It is brilliantly located, very well equipped plus it also offers great flexibility."
"Raising the temperature in Kilkenny's newest concert space on Tuesday night last, The Hub at Cillín Hill, New York band Mercury Rev have set the tone for this fantastic venue which hopefully will continue to host many such stellar gigs in future."
The Kilkenny People
"If you haven't already heard of this new performance venue in Kilkenny, you soon will. This is a very well run operation with great facilities and ample parking but above all, the acoustics in the venue are second to none. The Hub at Cillin Hill is a tremendous addition to the South East region."
Damian Downes, CEO
Kilkenny Arts Festival
"When production companies ask us to recommend good venues from a technical point of view, there are five infrastructural areas that we consider: Height, power, hanging points, blackout (drapes) and access. The Hub in Kilkenny has all five. We found it ideal and wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Hub to others in our industry."

"If every venue was as accommodating as The Hub, we'd be very happy".
