Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre is a hub of arts activity right in the heart of Skibbereen. Established in 1985, and after 30 years in our former North Street home, our move to a new purpose-built building has increased opportunities for access to, and engagement with the arts for locals and visitors alike.
Our two main galleries house contemporary art exhibitions that intrigue and inspire, presenting artwork by local, national and international artists and a Gallery Programme of guided tours, gallery talks and free resources such as the Discovery Box for families and Children's Activity Sheets.
The three Artists' Studios provide space for Irish and international artists to work on site and to meet the public, and the Dance Residency brings top-class contemporary dancers, choreographers, performers and musicians to Uillinn to develop new work and present it to the public throughout the year.
The vibrant and diverse participation programme enriches the visitor experience through workshops, masterclasses, film screenings, and dance and discussion platforms, and encourages equality of access for people of all ages and cultures through its long-term programmes and projects. Entrance to the exhibitions is free, and many of our activities and events are also free of charge. Perfect for rainy day activities, or to relax and enjoy a delicious coffee and cake in the sunny, sheltered courtyard courtesy of The Coffee Shop at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre has something for everyone.
With an average of 15 programmes and events every week, keep up to date on all that Uillinn has to offer by following us on facebook, twitter, instagram and our blog and sign up for our newsletter here.
