Tyrone Guthrie Centre

The Tyrone Guthrie Centre is a residential workplace open to professional practictioners in all art forms. Artist residencies/retreats are for maximum periods of 3 months in the full board Big House and 6 months in the self catering Farmyard Cottages.

In a tranquil, beautiful setting amid the lakes and drumlins of County Monaghan everything is provided for, including delicious food. With the advice and encouragement of his family Sir Tyrone Guthrie bequeathed his family home and estate to the State with the proviso that it be used for the benefit of artists. It was an inspired decision and one that has positively reshaped the cultural landscape of Ireland forever.

‘The Big House’ as it is affectionately known, accommodates up to eleven residents and up to seven can stay in the self-catering cottages. A total of 8 studio spaces are also available along with a performance/dance space opened in 2006.
