The Former First Derry Primary School was established on the city walls as a Blue Coat School in 1773 and moved to this site in 1894. The (listed) building was purchased in 1996 and then renovated by the Verbal Arts Centre: it has been designed to provide Ireland's first home for the literary arts.

The Centre offers a range of unique resources in its support of verbal creativity - library; children's storytelling theatre; debating chamber; exhibition, lecture and performance spaces; coffee-house; writer's studio; archive and sound studio.

The Verbal Arts Centre contains commissioned work by some of Ireland's leading visual artists and craftspersons, as well as numerous references to our poets, prose writers, dramatists and traditional storytellers.
