The Courthouse is a contemporary structure with a courtroom, consultation facilities, judge’s chambers, secure holding cell accommodation for prisoners and separate access and accommodation for the legal profession. A large roof light provides natural light that spans along one side of the room. The courtroom walls are panelled with European oak with the rear wall incorporating absorbent panels to improve the courtroom acoustics. The furniture is also constructed of European oak. The artwork in the reception area and on the external wall refers to one of the earliest accounts of ‘judgment’ in Ireland.
Ballyshannon Courthouse is supported by Donegal District Court Office.
