Lismore Castle Arts is committed to the presentation and promotion of contemporary visual art in Southern Ireland. It hosts exhibitions of international significance alongside a series of smaller exhibitions, projects and events as well as a comprehensive education programme.
In 2003 the owners of Lismore Castle, the Devonshire family, conceived an ambitious plan to transform the long-derelict West Wing of the Castle into a state-of-the-art contemporary gallery. Working with award-winning, Cork-based architects Jack Coughlan Associates, their plan was realised in September 2005, when Lismore Castle Arts opened. The gallery is a series of light-filled rooms, designed to exhibit and allow contemporary art to be appreciated in a modern context whilst also revealing elements of the 300 year old history of the building.
The gallery is an ideal venue for special events can be hired for receptions, conferences and other activites.
