Glebe gallery is a vista where you can go to enjoy the house, its paintings, the galleria, the coffee shop and its wonderful garden and lake. Its in an ideal location of peace and tranquillity.

Well, what can I say. Lovely setting for this art and countryside 'mix' treasure. What I liked in particular was that Glebe Gallery actually displays local artists work as well, which is so great. It's lovely for a trip any time that you are passing by, drop in for a stroll. Mr Hill certainly knew it was a treasure, and... More

DEREK HILL'S gift to Ireland could not be more special, as the home he lived in, the studios where he painted, all is lovingly preserved--what a treasure, and an unexpected find. While the countryside is littered with horrid debris from the Celtic Tiger excesses, this compact architectural jewel is tucked away alongside the water, surrounded by gorgeous plantings.... plus the...

Delightful setting and grounds. Gallery full of fascinating pictures and, currently, letters. House, as always, a delight. Totally comfortable, a place one could imaging moving into immediately and living there happily - particularly with al those pictures on the walls. Love the Recketts Blue Hall - now I know the recipe I can do it at home. Really nice little... More

We pulled up mid-morning under a thunderous sky. Straight to the cafe for recussitation - simple fare but tasty (Coffee, tea & herb-laden sausage rolls). Great crack with the staff. Booked our tickets in the gallery for our personal tour of Derek Hill's house. What an eclectic mixture - made no sense other than as the fruits of a life... More

This could easily be missed as it is really off the main tourist routes, but please don't, particularly if you are a fan of the arts. The Glebe House is the former home of Derrick Hill, a renowned English portrait and landscape painter, who loved an lived in Ireland most of his life. The house is just as Mr. Hill... More

Visited here recently whilst on a cycle from Glenveagh National Park- we stopped here in the newly opened Glebe House Tea rooms. Lovely coffee and traybakes/ cakes and I believe they are also doing afternoon tea now also (advised to book in advance). The food comes from the Glenveagh tearooms kitchens (which are excellent) so will definitely be back. Service... More

I was surprised that I enjoyed Derek hill's house so much. I didn't know much about the man and am not a fan of his art but he certainly was an interesting character. Don't bypass this attraction.

Here is another little gem to visit in Donegal. Wheather you are interested in art or not you will love Glebe Gallery - and also if the house is open you will be taken back in time. Lovely tea rooms also.
