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 loves the Antrim Coast Road, or the Glens of Antrim do call in here. Why? You’ll see how a range of the best local artists going back many decades have seen this beautiful land. Almost everything in the gallery is by Irish artists. Landscape and seascape pictures make up most of the collection on show, but there are also some stunning animal portraits. A small painting of a hare by Nigel Artingstall had me gasping. Every whisker, every strand of fur seems to have been lovingly painted in. There’s also a great sepia tone tractor, and quirky comedy works. Well worth a visit.
