• The Old Barracks & The Oratory Gallery Cahersiveen Co. Kerry

Heritage Centre Old Barracks & The Oratory Gallery

The Oratory is an old protestant church situated in Cahersiveen on the beautiful Ring of Kerry which has been converted to an Art Gallery.
Established in 1985 initially as a craft shop and tourist information point, The Oratory Gallery is now fully dedicated to promoting art in the south Kerry region . The proprietor Áine O’Driscoll, an artist herself , is actively involved in selecting only the best art to be displayed in the gallery.
There is also a Café run by Áines daughter Aoife providing a full lunch menu where you can relax and enjoy the wonderful art that surrounds you.

The Old Barracks was constructed between 1870 and 1875 and served as the Royal Irish Constabulary Barracks. It has an interesting history which can be further looked at in the information page.
Today it serves as a Heritage Centre for the Iveragh Peninsula. It is home to various exhibitions that relate to the local area, including The Great Southern and Western Railway, The Life and Times of Daniel O'Connell, The Fenin Rising of 1867, The 1916 Rising and Monsignor Hugh O' Flaherty (The Scarlet Pimpernel). back to Homepage www.calaido.com

John Sweeney ordered 2 of my Fine Art Prints and wrote me a wonderful feedback. It is always a pleasure for me to see how/that inspiration travels from one being to another with the methode of art. Thank you John, I hope they will always send you loads of energy for your own art.

"The tranquil beauty of Buddha by moonlight just fills me with peace and serenity every time I look at it.

I get such an artistic connection from this image of Peter’s dog. The perfectly cropped and balanced composition focusing on those beautiful intelligent eyes makes it an amazing capture.

Keep doing what you love, it shows.
