Glebe House, the home for nearly thirty years of the renowned artist Derek Hill, is situated on rising ground, beside Lough Gartan, east of Glenveagh National Park, Co. Donegal.

The Gardens of the Glebe House and Gallery are open to the public every day between 8am and 6.30pm.

The Glebe Gallery is open daily until 31 October 2021, between 11am and 6.30pm.

The Glebe House will remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Originally known as St Columb’s, the 1828 Regency-style house is decorated with William Morris textiles, and collections of Islamic and Japanese art, as well as 300 works by leading twentieth-century artists such as Picasso and Kokoshka. The house and gardens are displayed in an informal manner, as though Derek Hill was still in residence. Glebe House and Gallery are operated and managed by the Office of Public Works.
