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.
