Greywood Arts is a multidisciplinary artists’ residency space in a Georgian home in Killeagh, Co. Cork, Ireland. Recently renovated for modern comfort, the 1767 building has a rich history. Initially built by a tenant of the English aristocracy, the house later became an RIC Barrack, a sawmill, and a guesthouse. Situated on just over an acre alongside the River Dissour, the house provides a quiet retreat. Its village centre location allows convenient access to local amenities and is adjacent Glenbower Wood.

The fine print: One entry per author. Travel expenses are the responsibility of the writer, however we can arrange transportation between Cork City and Killeagh.
