Castles in the air

Castles in the air (Sammy’s retreat) 40x30cm oil on canvas SOLD

I was lucky enough to be allowed into some of the private areas of Castle Leslie during one of my visits. This is the drawing room of one of the family and the room is crammed full of so much art that much of it was stacked along the walls and furniture!

Next Thursday the 27th, Sammy Leslie will open my Castle Leslie Show with an exclusive procesco and canapés reception in the Long Room of the Castle.

Please contact Carrie at for an invitation.


The exhibition is presented by Carrie Neely Contemporary Art and will continue at The Lodge, Castle Leslie from November 28th to Dec 19th.

If you can’t make the reception then why not treat yourself to a coffee at The Lodge and visit the exhibition at your leisure.


Carrie Neely Contemporary Art will donate 20% of all artworks purchased during the exhibition to ‘Art for Walls’, a Castle Leslie Estate Charity where the sale of creative arts are used to help fund the 2014-2020 restoration project for the Castle Leslie Estate Famine walls. 


Castle Leslie is one of Ireland’s jewels and it has been an absolute pleasure to visit often and to paint such beautiful spaces. The Interiors are all from the Castle or the Lodge and the welly boots paintings are from either the Castle itself or the village at it’s gate. Unusually for me, I have also included a small number of landscapes in this exhibition.

You might have noticed that I have recently featured a yellow door in some of my Welly Boot paintings, the door comes from a charming cottage right beside the Castle gates.

Here’s a sneak preview of the show
