*** COVID-19 Coronavirus Statement ***
We regret to announce that Killeagh’s May Sunday Festival 2020 (1st – 4th May) is cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We are so disappointed to miss this year’s celebration of community, creativity and Glenbower Wood, but the health and safety of our community is most important. We are working to reschedule Greywood Arts’ associated community programming for the autumn. In these uncertain times, we wish everyone good health and peace of mind. We’ll be back next year, stronger than ever!
Upcoming residencies, classes and events through May 2020 are postponed and we are doing our best to reschedule where possible.
Further information for artists-in-residence can be found here: Residency Updates
We are continuing to accept applications for July – December 2020 on a rolling basis.
Welcome to Greywood Arts!
We are a multi-disciplinary artist’s residency and community creativity hub in Killeagh, East Cork. Artists and creative makers come from all over the world to stay in self-catering accommodation and work on their individual projects. We have a movement studio, a visual arts studio, space for writers, and a library with a piano for musicians, as well as a large dining/meeting room.
We also facilitate workshops, cultural events and community arts projects – and we’re growing fast! We hope to expand our space with the addition of an arts classroom, studios for local artists, and a multi-purpose event / exhibition space by 2021.
Greywood is at the foot of Glenbower Wood, a perfect spot for walks and contemplation. Located in the village centre, residents have easy access to shops and amenities.
Built in 1767 by agents of an English landlord, the house later was used as an RIC barrack, which was burned out by the IRA in 1920. It subsequently became a sawmill, and later a guesthouse. The village is delighted to see the transformation of a prominent historic home that was on the verge of becoming derelict spring back to life again.
