Welcome to The Whitethorn Gallery

2020 Covid 19 update:

We are open again as of Dec 2nd. Once again, in order to ensure optimum safety for everyone we will be operating on a private viewing basis for the foreseeable future. Please either call ahead, or call when you get to town – and someone will be straight down to you.  Meantime our Website is up to date with everything we currently have in stock. We are happy to offer free shipping to anywhere in the world at this time of uncertainty.  For our Irish clients we are also offering to bring a selection of works chosen from the website to your home, where you can view the work on your wall.

We would like to wish all our clients the very best in these uncertain times. We will certainly do everything in our power to facilitate your  enjoyment of our wonderful Artists in a secure safe environment.

The Whitethorn Gallery is in Clifden, Connemara’s capital, which nestles in the foothills of the Twelve Bens mountain range in Co. Galway.

Situated between two other lovely galleries on the sunny side of Main Street – Clifden’s own “Left Bank” – we are very much a mainstream gallery, showing works by some of the best contemporary artists that Ireland has to offer, together with a number of fine European artists. We also participate in a number of shows and exhibitions around the country annually.

The gallery is owned and directed by the award winning artist Anne Merrins.

Web enquiries are always welcome, and we are happy to ship anywhere in the world. However, if you can, why not come and visit us in Clifden with its twin spires – there’s nowhere better on a fine day!

‘Kenneth Webb at 90’

May 28th, 2017|

We at The Whitethorn Gallery would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to our dear Kenneth Webb on the launch last week of his huge retrospective Exhibition with Gladwell & Patterson in London ‘Kenneth Webb at 90’

Such a major achievement and a celebration of a long life dedicated to the Arts. 

Kenneth at 90 is still painting, still riding horses, still living live to the full. 

We wish him and Joan and all the family continued good health into the future, and we hope he continues to delight us with more beautiful vibrant landscapes showcasing his beloved Connemara.
