Who we are
Áras Éanna is Europe’s most westerly Arts Centre located on the smallest of the Aran Islands, Inis Oírr. Situated in a former weaving factory, Áras Éanna is a multi-functioning arts space that includes an artists studio space, a 75 seat theatre, two galleries, a café and various rooms and spaces for workshops and classes.
Áras Éanna was founded in 2000 and since then we have played host to national and international visual and conceptual artists, musicians, performers, actors and a range of festivals and workshops. We run a Artist in Residence programme that offers three studios and a self-contained apartment on site. Áras Éanna on the wild picturesque Inis Oírr provides a unique place of inspiration for the visiting artist.
