Be the First to Take Up Artists’ Residency in This Castle

The Cregg Castle Arts Venue,

Corrandulla, Co Galway.

An Artists Residence

Working Studios, Gallery and workshops

I thank you for your interest in this venture. The call is for Artists who wish to work together to create a wonderful, peaceful, creative living and working environment to develop and showcase their artwork, while creating a whole new experience within the historic walls of Cregg Castle.
This is a great opportunity to join a team of like-minded Artists and become one of the key people to transform this beautiful Castle into an Arts Venue as well as a creative environment to live and work.
The castle is now in need of some loving care mainly cleaning and redecorating. The aim is, as a team, we work for a full week, on the accommodation areas and then move into the main common rooms. This work will allow us get a great start and then everyone will have 4 weeks holiday later in the year at their convenience.
The rent per week is € 100 -120 with one day per week allocated to working on the venue.
Each Artist will have a medium to large comfortable bedroom with an en-suite or shared between two. The bedrooms will be heated by a pot belly stove. Communal areas include a large internal studio with store and coffee room of a lounge, the large kitchen/dining room, living rooms and music room and then a presentation/workshop/movie room. The rent agreement ranges to reflect the rooms.  Each artists has an external personal (stable) workshop. Bills included in the rent are electricity, TV and Wi-Fi and an Insurance policy for all artwork. Firewood for our heat is available on the property. We hope to grow our own vegetable garden within the one acre wall garden.
The venue also encompasses a large Gallery, Gallery/ Office. The plan is to host resident group exhibitions, external / internal workshops and events. It will be open to the public from Thursday – Sunday each week. A 20% commission will apply on sales from the gallery which will be invested back into the venue.
The Gallery website will promote the resident artists which will also have links to each of their personal sites.

Exceptional, Historic Castle of  Extensive Proportions dating back to the 17th Century; located on approx. 180 acres of land just nine miles from Galway City close to the little village of Corrandulla.
Cregg Castle is a historical property, having been built by the Clement Kirwin Family in 1648, later inherited by the renowned Chemist, Richard Kirwin in 1754. Remains of his laboratory are still in the Orchard. There is a Queen Anne Bell Tower in the Courtyard, and also a lovely Chapel within the Castle. After the Kirwins, Cregg Castle was owned by the Blake Family, another of the Great Tribes of Galway.
Cregg Castle is one of the last, if not actually the last of the ” Fortified Mansions” built in Ireland; and is located in rural splendour on about 180 acres of magical  woodland, meadow and pasture.  There is also a spring well and a river meanders through part of the land.
The entire building is an interesting display of three centuries of advancement in fortified building. Whilst parts of the building are clearly fortified.
