The Corrandulla Experience!

People don’t realise that Corrandulla is a fantastic place to visit. The windy road is full of interesting arty places to visit. Only 20 minutes from the Menlo Park Hotel, up the Headford road, Corrandulla offers visitors a lovely day out for all the family.

Emer’s Art Studio You are very welcome to come as a group to enjoy an art painting class together. You will be treated to coffee and tea and you can also opt to enjoy a delicious vegetarian lunch!

Annaghdown Pier is a lovely place to go and swim and enjoy the beautiful views. People swim there all year round. I would be more of a fair weathered swimmer myself…


Below Corrandulla Sensory Garden. i  It’s a lovely peaceful place to go and sit with a  zany twist as it’s full of wonderful sculptures by Peter Lochman.

You can also go Horse Riding in Clonboo and visit the Famine grave near annaghdown pier. Below is Annaghdown Abbey. I would take the kids here to walk, run around and play hide and go seek.

The legendary Campbell’s Tavern is 5 minutes up the road in Cloughanover. This is the best music pub in Ireland. They also serve great pizza and cocktails. Trad and Bluegrass music on Wednesday and Thursday nights. They often have Sunday afternoon gigs on during the summer.

Ross Errily Abbey is really cool. Absolutely wonderful place to visit that very few people know about. There are so many interesting rooms and corridors to explore. We always had great craic here when my kids were younger, the two dogs, Gemma and Zoey love it too!! You’ll find this gem just outside Headford, about 15 minutes from Emer’s Art Studio. On your way watch out for some anciet charactors on the wall outside the post office in Headford!! (Painted by yours truely)

Our studio in Corrandulla offers Adults, Teens and Children a chance to learn the important art skills they need to be creative in a lovely rural environment.
