About Us

One night in November 1998 a group of artists and craft workers gathered in a local pub on the Dingle Peninsula and from that meeting on a cold winter’s night “West Kerry Craft Guild” was formed. A premises was sought on Main St in Dingle town and soon enough “An Gailearaí Beag” (The Small Gallery) was opened representing the varied and talented work of the “West Kerry Craft Guild”.An Gailearaí Beag went from strength to strength and was a welcome addition to Dingle town, where people could buy genuine local handcrafted work. 

Very soon after opening up, An Gailearaí Beag moved to a bigger premises, while remaining on Main St, and its membership grew and grew.  Today, while many members have come and gone, thirteen members remain, all working and living on the Dingle Peninsula. The selection of work is as varied as it was in 1998, including woodwork, weaving, ceramics, photography and art.  If you find yourself wandering along the streets of Dingle, be sure to step behind the red door of An Gailearaí Beag and discover a treasure trove of original arts and crafts. You will not be disappointed.

As the West Kerry Craft Guild, we manage and run the gallery ourselves. Each member has their own display space within the shop, and regular opportunities to showcase their work in the windows.
Everything for sale is designed and handmade in Dingle, and you won’t find our work anywhere else in town.
Many of our products incorporate local materials such as sheeps wool and we use recyclable packaging.
We take turns to staff the shop, so come in and meet a different artist or craftworker each day!

 We’re adding more and more to our new Etsy shop, so you can still purchase our handmade arts and crafts online!
