We visited the gallery and booked a guided tour of the Glebe House. The guide was well informed and was able to give personal insights about the late owner who had gifted the house, land and all the effects in the house to the State. The property is managed by the Office of Public Works and is very well worth... More

We visited on a sunny day in late September and were privileged to be able to walk in the grounds and down to the lake where the views on a sunny day are incomparable. We had a simple lunch of soup and sandwiches in the tea room and then met our guide with three others for a tour of Derek... More

This gallery is not just for art lovers. It is a privileged visit into a much loved home and personal collection of Derek Hill. As well as a guided tour through the house, there is a gallery, tea room all set in beautiful well kept grounds. A must for a great day out.

Interesting and informative tour of this William Morris decorated house packed with a wide variety of 'priceless' pictures plus memorabilia. Small but pleasant and well maintained gardens

What a wonderful little gem this is. Not a great many such places exist in Donegal. My wife and were with a small group of about 8 visitors taking the first tour at 11.30 am . The gardens are fabulous and kept this way by Michael and others. He is a fountain of knowledge. Kathleen was our tour guide and... More

Beautiful setting, especially when the lilies come into bloom. The house itself is beautiful and extremely interesting to anyone with even a fleeting interest in art. The adjoining gallery is expertly maintained and frequently shows local alongside other artists' exhibits. The nearby mill is also worth a visit, if making a day of it.

Worth a visit. Visited on Wednesday when they organise a children's craft day. Do pay the few euro to see around the house. Make sure you go down to the lake for a quiet moment. Wonderful friendly staff and a lovely little tea room.

Was impressed by the tour of the Glebe House and Gallery, tour guide was very informative and the art on view impressive. It was situated in a beautiful area of Donegal, well worth a visit. The tea rooms were excellent as well

A beautiful setting for artist Derek Hill's house. You can get a tour around the house, the tour guides are very well informed and enthusiastic - we defnitely enjoyed the tour around Hills quirky home.!! And we recognised lots of well known names in Hill's collection of art. There is an art gallery with current exhibitions in the grounds if... More
