Places to Go

CROOKHAVEN ART STUDIO is the gateway to this tiny village at the end of Ireland. From her family farmhouse gallery, painter and photographer Magda O’Driscoll creates and displays her unique collection of artwork inspired by the extraordinary land and seascape of West Cork.

Her photographs capture the essence of this ever-changing peninsula, its palette of extraordinary colours washed by the Atlantic and peopled by characters from all over the world.

Magda, who holds a Masters degree in Fine Art, paints and photographs all year round, so when you have to leave this quiet corner of heaven, you can take a little bit home with you.

She captures memories, moods and moments in oil and through her lens, from soft sandy beaches to tranquil village scenes and the wild, rugged hills and mountains.

Magda’s unique hand-made designs are also available on clothing, with an exciting range of T-shirts and hoodies which capture the fun of this wonderful seaside village.

Magda is the brains behind her trademark “Crookhaven Rocks” design – based on the familiar rocks on the beach at the head of the harbour – which add a funky flavour to her traditional craft.

The Studio is open all summer long. Commissions welcome.
