Workshops led by internationally renowned artists who are Fellows of The Ballinglen Arts Foundation.


Draw, paint, make prints or photograph in rural Ireland along the rugged landscape of North Mayo and  find new ways to explore your personal vision. Ballinglen is situated 6 kilometres from Downpatrick Head and the iconic Dún Briste sea stack and almost 8 kilometres from the remarkable neolithic site at Céide Fields which contains the oldest known stone-walled fields in the world.  All classes are led by internationally recognised Ballinglen Fellows who know the area intimately and take you to the best places to work plein air and explore the beauty of this mythical country. Return to your workspace and capture the experience on canvas or paper with guidance. We invite you to leave your everyday behind and immerse yourself in an enriching, creative experience in this beautiful place and learn a new technique to expand your practise. Our reputation is renowned as artists have been coming here for over 30 years.
