Glebe House & Gallery The Derek Hill Collection

Gardens & Parks, Monuments & Sites, Museums & Art Centres
Glebe House, originally a Rectory built in the 1820s, has been the former home of the late Derek Hill (1916 – 2000), a renowned painter and collector. He was also the driving force behind the Tory Island school of primitive painting.

In 1980 the artist donated his house and his art collection to the state. His art collection, which can be admired in Glebe House (guided tour only), includes works by Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Louis le Brocquy, Graham Sutherland, Auguste Renoir, Jack Butler Yeats, Oskar Kokoshka, Patrick Swift and the naive Tory Island painter, James Dixon

Hill’s former studio has been converted into a modern gallery with changing exhibitions. 

The Gallery at Glebe House is open for a limited season each year, around Easter and then from June to the end of September. The woodland gardens are open all year round.
