Art Experiences

The stunning landscapes and diverse flora and fauna of the Beara peninsula have attracted many artists to the Kenmare area. Art Guild Kenmare is now offering a high quality, authentic, hands-on experience of art in the area exclusively available to residents of the Park Hotel Kenmare. The Art Guild draws on a network of established local artists and co-ordinates the delivery of Art Experience Packages tailored to the specific requirements of Hotel Guests.  

As an introduction to the Experience Packages or just as a fun morning or afternoon out, the Art Guild has established a Kenmare Art Trail which provides Guests with an opportunity to visit artists in their workshops and studios in hidden corners of the countryside around Kenmare at no charge.
