This is an unusual gallery space in that it retains the essence and a few fixtures of the legendary White House Bar; 1 mile west of Kilcrohane, it lays at an ancient ceile crossroads where folk would travel across the water from Beara and the Mizen to meet, play music, sing and dance.  The site of the old dancing square is a perfect setting for Thorn, a visual artist in love with music and dance.

The West Barn is the venue 'out back' of the White House Gallery overlooking Dunmanus bay. It's an old-world, cosy setting for music sessions, gigs, comedy nights, art events and workshops.
The west barn has also hosted magical wedding parties and other private events. 

The Gallery is intimate, atmospheric and relaxing within the bar-themed artisan coffee shop, “like Paris in the 1950's” - you will often find artists and entertainers hanging out,
hidden deep in the magnificent beauty and effervescent light of  The Sheep's Head peninsula, reaching 25km into the Atlantic Ocean.  This thriving community on the peninsula created a great local producer's market shop; also on the Sheep's Head is The Heron Gallery, Dun Oir Pottery, a stone carver, Iron works, a milner, weavers, authors, artists, bakers, food producers, musicians, jewellers, sculptors, farmers and fishermen residing in the land of The Sheep's Head Way - A walkers, horse-rider's and cyclist's paradise with magnificent trails spanning 200+km.
