Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

We are inviting expressions of interest from artists across all artistic practices and are looking for someone to move into our home and studio, to live with us while you work on your practice and enjoy the local surroundings.

Offering a focused professional development opportunity that supports and nurtures the arts practice of a professional artist, who is interested in developing or sharing their arts practice. Residents will have the option to put a permanent piece on the farm, to help us build our very own living gallery, forested walk, and opportunities to work with local exhibition spaces.

We have 2 shared studio spaces and private room accommodation available for short term residency, from 1 week to 6 weeks. Longer residencies will also be considered and can be discussed, just let us know what you need. You will join medium term and longer-term residents on the farm, including the owner Tim. Studio spaces are also available to local artists who bring a connection with the local area and form a network within Crithir.

The farm studios provide the perfect place to focus on your work and remove yourself from distractions, while connecting with nature. All studios have natural daylight and 24-hour access. All bedrooms are also fitted with writing desks, perfect for writing and poetry.

Take a step into old Ireland and live in a 100+ year old farmhouse cottage surrounded by rolling hillscapes and inspirational lands. The artist’s residency and studio combination on a 20 acre farm with wooded areas, river, bog and waterfall nearby. Accommodation will be cosy double bedrooms, with writing desks and built-in storage and wardrobes. The studios are a blank canvas and we are happy to work with you in fitting benches or shelving as required. We also have a vegetable garden and chickens and would welcome our resident artists to get involved in the garden.

The accommodation is in a 100+ year old farmhouse and grounds, with rolling farmland, rustic charm and character. The house itself is currently in the final stages of renovation and provides a comfortable living environment.

We can provide a bicycle for travel in the local area, to access local villages and towns, though a car would be beneficial. Drimoleague and Skibbereen also have regular bus connections to Cork city.
