The Exhibition

Now installed at Arthur's Barn on the Belmont Demesne, located in beautiful woodlands, with nature and Fat bike trails, with cafe and craft outlets.


BOATYARD was first exhibited at Bantry House, Bantry Bay 2018, then at Ballymaloe House, Cork, 2019.

The art of Irish boat building embodies resilience, defiance, and survival.  BOATYARD was inspired by the graveyard of old hulls and wrecks at Hegarty's in Old Court. 

It is a reflection on Ireland’s past through its relationship with the sea and those who sailed upon it.​

A Soundscape by Tilby and film sound designer Steve Jones
