When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely little gem down an alleyway off Dunfanaghy Main Street. We loved being able to have a wander around and look at the art without someone standing over us and pressuring us to buy, as is common. Ended up buying two pieces, both beautiful. Great customer service (the owner even fixed the frame on one so we could hang it, and wrapped our larger piece well for a car journey back to England). Thank you!

Wonderful gallery in Dunfanaghy with beautiful art of the local area. Very affordable prints in a range of sizes and the original paintings are breathtaking. Such a shame to see that it may soon be closing down. I sincerely hope that it will move to another premises in town as it is the kind of place that gives Dunfanaghy its character. We bought several prints and enjoyed talking to Brian about the exact spots in the local area that provided the inspiration for the paintings. Dunfanaghy would be the poorer if the Art House was to disappear for good.

I've just returned from a few days in Dunfanaghy, Donegal, and highly recommend a visit to The Art House Ireland. I was last there about 5 years ago and bought a print and a ceramic owl, and it has moved premises but is still in the main street in Dunfanaghy. It's an appealing little gallery, with a wealth of paintings and prints by local artists. This time I bought one of the owner Brian's atmospheric and evocative prints of the local area, called 'Lake of Shadows' which is a view of Lough Swilly. Last time I bought one from his African collection, so he's pretty eclectic! Brian himself is a fount of knowledge on art and on the local area and is very informative and helpful. Upstairs Emily has created a kind of fairie kingdom for both adults and children. Great visit, look forward to returning again!

Visited the Art House Gallery in Dunfanaghy Co. Donegal and I loved it. The art on the walls are beautiful and prints are available to purchase. It’s a relaxing and lovely way to pass the time. I purchased a print entitled the ‘Hills of Donegal” which I loved. The gentleman was very helpful I recommend this gallery as its well worth a visit.
