Shanagarry Design Centre

Shan Design373
Acrylic on acrylic paper. 11.5”x 8”.
I’m going to use this image for postcards and greeting cards which will be on sale in my studio “Downstairs in Shanagarry Design”. Some people are finding it hard to find the studios, so here’s how you find us; Go right through the shop and head for the conservatory, right opposite the coffee machine there is a flight of stairs going down, take these stairs and below you will find a world of art and design, with the beautiful fragrances of Angels Touch body lotions etc, the amazing ceramic artwork of Stable Door Pottery, the delighted laughing of small children in art and craft classes with Ann O’ Riordan of Eco Paisti and the incredible painting and prints of artists Belinda Northcote and Phil Davis.
Having wandered round the studios, all of which are open to visitors you can head back upstairs to enjoy a sumptuous lunch or maybe just a coffee and cake, and maybe purchase a little something from the huge stock in the Kilkenny shop.
There is probably nowhere, in Ireland, quite like the Shanagarry Design Centre, you can shop,lunch, take a class in painting or ceramics, bring the little ones for a class with Ann, or simply chill out with a coffee in the conservatory, taking in the magnificent views of Ballycotton Bay. A must visit!
