The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig

The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig, is a residential workplace for national and international artists that houses several visual arts studios, a print studio, dance studio, recording studio, and writing spaces. It is situated deep in the lush green countryside of County Monaghan. Supported by the Arts Council of Ireland/An Chomhairle Ealaíon, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and the OPW, the Centre was made possible through the vision of Sir Tyrone Guthrie, who, with advice and encouragement from his family, bequeathed his ancestral home to Ireland with the proviso that it would be used for the benefit of artists, as it had been when his home. An inspired decision, it is one that has supported Irish and international artists to work, to collaborate since opening its doors in 1981.
