“Great Mementos of Ireland”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

We visited Doreen Drennan's Studio during our July vacation In Ireland. One of her paintings of the Cliffs of Moher had been featured in the reception area of the Ballinalacken Castle Country House where we customarily stay when we visit the west of Ireland. After visiting her studio and meeting Doreen, we purchased the Cliffs painting and another pastoral scene. They are sitting prminently in our living room. Thanks Doreen!

“Breathtaking location- breathtaking art!”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

I visited this Art Studio in the summer of 2011. I am passionate about art and Ireland so combining the two was a must for me on this trip. The studio is perfect- it is set in the wilds of the Burren region a perfect background and inpiration for Doreen's art. It was exactly what I wanted- her paintings capture rural Ireland in all its beauty- such attention to detail .. I knew my parents (both Irish born and bred, mum from Clare dad from Galway) would love them all. I chose the one of Kinvara pier and boats (a short ride away from the gallery which we had passed on our way from Galway) and presented it to mum and dad when I got back to the states- they loved it! It has pride of place over our fireplace. Would highly recommend this experience for all art and Ireland lovers. Wish I could have fitted in some lessons there!

“Fantastic Art Experience - Wonderful Paintings”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

Loved this artist. All her paintings are excellent and of the local area.
My family and I bought a beautiful painting of the Cliffs of Moher which will always remind us of our holiday in both Clare and Ireland.

This painter had an added touch in that her knowledge and love of the local area comes through in every painting.
