Additional information 

“Le Chéile Arts prides itself on only showing local artists and craftmakers. It’s a harmonious medley of both new and established painters, sculptors and ceramic artists, alongside the quirkiest and most incredibly talented crafters, knitters, felters and wood turners that County Cork has to offer.

It’s situated in the middle of the central West Cork town of Dunmanway, and is very close to an easily accessible public car park just before it on the main road that passes through the town.”
Le Chéile Arts is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 6pm
