Goat Island


Goat Island beach is nestled just 3 miles west of Ardmore in County Waterford, Ireland. It is a true gem, tucked away in a secluded inlet that faces south, offering shelter from the west by the island. To find this hidden paradise, you must traverse a winding lane, guided by the signpost. The moment you arrive, you’ll be captivated by the magical cove that emerges before your eyes – a sight that truly makes this journey worthwhile.

As an artist, I aimed to reflect this seascape with the tranquility and charm of this remote beach. This piece of art holds a special place in my heart, as it was featured in a solo exhibition titled “A Better Place,” which was curated by the Waterford Healing Arts Trust in University Hospital Waterford.  The exhibition “A Better Place” was conceived with a noble purpose – to bring solace and comfort to patients, visitors, and staff during the challenging times of Covid. It is an immense honour to know that my painting played a role in making the hospital environment a better and more soothing space. This inspiring initiative was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Arts Council.

Waterford also offers a myriad of other wonders to explore. Don’t miss the opportunity to venture along the Copper Coast, a scenic drive between Tramore and Dungarvan. Nature’s unspoilt beauty will unfold before your eyes, leaving you awe-inspired at every turn. Another favorite of mine is Dunmore East, a picturesque fishing village in the east of County Waterford. The serene atmosphere and captivating landscapes will leave you with cherished memories.

Owning this artwork not only enriches your space with beauty but also connects you to the sense of peace and tranquility. You become a part of the story, experiencing the hidden treasure of this special place and the healing power of art.
