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

Had a lovely walk round the grounds, even went skimming stones. I got a scone and tea in the cafe, which was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed the art work

Just a perfect period piece, must-see attraction full of atmosphere and the personality of the artists Derek Hill. Staff were fantastic, enthusiastic and eager to share their stories.

Derek Hill's house, garden an gallery are a joy to visit. Our tour guide Clare was charming and well- informed. Her approach was perfect for the intimate and domestic nature of the house. The collection and decor are sophisticated and eclectic with wonderful examples of this major artist's own work alongside that of other significant artists and designers.

Fascinating place even if you think William Morris invented an old motor car, as I once did. For years it was one of Donegal's best kept secrets but now we can all enjoy the art and sheer quirkiness of this secluded gem. The guides will have you fascinated with their stories, you'll love the walls covered in unusual displays, but... More
