The Gallery is located in converted stables next to a wonderful Regency Period House, built in 1828, set in mature woodland gardens. Anyone with an interest in interior design will truly marvel at this place.
 
Glebe House Donegal itself was the home of Derek Hill, a renowned painter and collector, and the catalyst behind the development of the Tory Island school of primitive painting. He donated the house and his art collection to the state, which remodelled the outbuildings to display his fine collection of paintings.
 
Among the 300 paintings are works by Picasso, Bonnard, Yeats, Annigoni, and Pasmore. The decoration in the house includes William Morris papers and textiles, Victoriana, Donegal folk art, and Japanese and Islamic art.
 
Access to the house is by guided tour only. There is access to the ground floor of the Gallery for people with disabilities. There are tea rooms on this level. No toilet facilities for disabled. Guide dogs permitted. Parking is 200 metres from gallery. People with disabilities are permitted to park in front of the house.
