  • Greenlane Gallery - Holyground Dingle

    The Greenlane Gallery is situated in the town of Dingle in West Kerry, Ireland. It was established in 1992 by proprietor and curator Susan Callery. Susan is a native of Dingle.

    The gallery exhibition space encompasses three floors of an historical house situated on Holy Ground; a street that has been inhabited since Medieval times and was named after the holes in the ground that were used in the tanning of leather hides.

    The Greenlane showcases some of the most vibrant and distinctive creative talent from Ireland and abroad with work ranging from Fine Art to Applied Art and Jewelry. With new collections from local artists: Michael Flaherty, Patsy Farr, Tomas Ó Ciobháin and Áine Ní Chiobháin.

    The Gallery at present has two new artists Séamus Connolly (Sculptor) one of Ireland's leading bronze sculptors. He is best known for his highly acclaimed life-size bronze portraits, including our own Kerry GAA All-Star legend Páidí Ó’ Sé in Ventry. However his heart as an artist lies instead in his more personal, stylized pieces. Inspired by animals and nature, Séamus has a fantastic reputation for these individual, quirky sculptures.Also Peter Honan (Painter) Peter Homan's art is created from a world of contradictions and experimentation. Inspired and conceived in Ballinskelligs, Co Kerry, Peter takes his struggle with chronic pain, and through imagination and escapism, he forges his abstracted landscapes. Peter’s paintings are of the light inspired within our natural landscape and both the darkness and hope within ourselves.
