Experimental Painting week-end The Strand Inn

This week-end is for all Artists who dare to loosen up and forget pretty picture painting!

Price 100 euro a Day per person including Accommodation, breakfast and dinner and art classes
Please contact Clifden on 051 383174  for dates and availability.

It is open to every standard. People who paint a little, those who have painted for years, everyone who says I can’t draw a straight line and have never tried but would like to explore the experience of painting a large canvas.


So, throw caution to the wind and come to stay on the very edge of the Sea in warm and cosy surroundings, at The Strand Inn in Dunmore East take an early morning swim or a cliff walk before or after a delicious breakfast and then become creative  in their adjoining bright and airy studio.

For the non-painters there are also plenty of outdoor pursuits to become involved in.

The Dunmore East Golf Club is within walking distance; it overlooks the village of Dunmore East & has breath taking views of the village, Hook Peninsula & Waterford Harbour.

For walkers there are rambling Cliff paths to enjoy along Waterford Estuary with its wealth of history & nature or simply ramble through the village & enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in one of the hostelries along the way.

The course is given by Mary Tritschler whose paintings are shown here. Her CV can be downloaded here
