Questions? We’re happy to speak with you before you submit your application.
If you will be performing or exhibiting in Ireland, we’d love to become familiar with your work.
Writing Residency Competitions: Twice a year we offer a competition for short story authors and poets to win a week-long residency. The next competition will be for summer/autumn-details forthcoming.
Artist in the Community Residency: The first two artist in the community residencies came about as part of the Creative Killeagh program. We plan to further develop this opportunity for artists who find community interaction integral to their practice. More information coming in 2018.
We have a very limited number of work exchange places for early-career artists and arts-administrators who would like to contribute to the development of and day to day running of the residency, or who can offer assistance with the maintenance of the house and grounds. Work is based on the skills you have to offer or wish to improve. In exchange, Work-X participants receive a private room and some meals or groceries. When possible, participants would have access to studios and time to create. There is a two-week minimum commitment.
We are happy to host internships and can work with individuals to fulfil their program requirements. Interns work closely with the Creative Director and can include marketing, administration, art space management, and event planning. Through our close relationship with Midleton Arts Festival participants can gain festival planning experience, too.
Our studios are available to host workshops requiring on-site accommodation. We can host teachers leading art, yoga, pilates, and music retreats. We are interested in offerings for the local community, professionals and pre-professional training opportunities for ages 18+ at this time.

Note: We are committed to delivering a service that is accessible to artists, and hope to offer fully-funded residency programs as we grow. We plan to introduce opportunities for parents, but the current programs are for adults only. We regret that we are not yet able to accommodate individuals with mobility disabilities as bedrooms and studios are on the first and second floors (2nd/3rd floors US).
