The place has new owners, and a new name. I visited, but found that there was no welcome. There were several people there, but none made any attempt to speak to me. Where before this place was stocked with paintings, it now has a section with old antiques. It seemed crammed, crowded, and the old items added sat oddly among... More

FREE to enter. It is great to see a really BIG Sam McLarnon watercolour, and interesting to see several of his early watercolours. They have different, bolder colours, and blocky rocks, reminding me of the style of (very handsome) classic tourist posters. You can also see and compare some of his oil paintings here, all in one room. I also... More

What a wonderful display of different art to find in Larne! It's always very interesting to see what's on display from many famous local artists, contemporary and from the past. The owner, Mr. McIlwaine is always very accommodating, he'll go and fetch a painting from elsewhere if you need to see it, or lend out ones he owns to exhibitions... More

I do enjoy visiting this place. The owner is always very friendly, even though he knows I’ll never buy anything! Despite this, he is very happy to talk about all the pictures in the gallery, and the artists who painted them. While there I've seen him chatting away to other visitors just the same way. If you’re a tourist who... More

They have a lot of old fashioned landscape paintings by some well known local artists. Some horse pictures also. The place is small but bright and there are a great many pictures all around. The owner is very friendly and didn't mind at all that I was only in there to have a look.
