The Art House ranks as Ireland’s No. 1 gallery on Trip Advisor. It was opened by owner, Derry-born artist Brian O’Doherty, in 2011. The gallery is in the little seaside village of Dunfanaghy, Co Donegal, in the North West of Ireland.


The gallery’s popularity with those who visit is a mark of the quality of the work. However, it’s also a response to the friendliness of the artist himself.


So visitors to The Art House appreciate his willingness to share his insights and passion for art.
