Glebe Gallery is situated in a rural Irish setting. The location itself is stunning with beautiful gardens and lake for your enjoyment. There is parking for all and good disabled access. The little coffee shop has lovely home baking and priced reasonably. The gallery is small but well laid out.

Excellent art gallery set in a rural setting which you could add on to a trip to Glenveagh National park if you wish as it is quite near it. This was originally built to house the works of Derek Hill the artist but combines other contributors as well and they have quite a few events on indoor and outdoor weather... More

This is definitely worth a visit. Lovely historical house with fantastic gallery. There is also lots of lovely areas for picnics, so it's the perfect place to make a day trip to.

With friends we visited this wonderful house. We were shown around by Jean who is a simply terrific guide. Having known and spent time with Derek Hill she has dozens of great stories which illustrate his life and work. She really is a huge bonus for any visitor. The choice of work on show is fascinating and gives a wonderful... More

Beautiful place for picnic. Went here on Heritage day so was a lot to see and do (music/storytelling/face painting for the childer). Gallery was not open but would be normally at other times. Usually they have good exhibitions worth a look.

Visited this place last week following walk to Glenveagh National Park. It is amazing. If you get a chance have Jean show you around. She is brilliant at bringing this house and home come to life from the start at the front door seeing Derek Hill's portable easel, his portraits, his kitchen and his bedroom to his guest bedroom.

This is not too far from Glenveagh National Park. The museum is in a Georgian era house once owned by artist Derek Hill. Not only was he a painter but also a great supporter of other artists, a true renaissance man. Do not miss the house tour. That's where all the truly great art is. There is also a rotating... More

Glebe House and Gallery can truly be described as one of the main highlights of County Donegal. In Glebe House there is a permanent collection of paintings by former owner Derek Hill, but also works by Kokoshka, Renoir or Picasso are charmingly displayed. Also very impressive are the 'sea scapes' of Tory Island painter James Dixon. In the adjoining gallery... More
