A little centre of excellence! If you are looking for a venue to meet friends for coffee and treats, to a fabulous breakfast or lunch, this famous centre of Art and exhibitions is the place. Spacious parking and just off the roundabout near The Boulevard and on route to Dublin or Belfast - stop! See FE McWilliams legacy sculptures as well as travelling art exhibitions or to stop at the tourist advice centre and finish with a treat to eat - try this!!!!

I visit the gallery regularly and love it. Am particularly interested in sculpture and there is always a great display in the garden there, as well as some indoor works. Also an exhibition room, a small selection of Banbridge/art/related books for sale, as well as the lovely restaurant - great for lunch or just coffee. And of course the display of the materials from FE McWilliam's studio. A great deal of variety in one small gallery!

I love coming here; always a soulful exhibition on, with a delicious home-made tea to keep you lingering. & no matter the weather, the sculpture garden is always a treat of treasures for adult & child.

Most enjoyable visit to this gallery/studio easily located off the A1 just outside Banbridge. The studio showcasing the works and workings of FE McWilliam was fascinating and the sculpture garden highlighted some of his brilliant work along with those of some young female sculptors. Very nice main exhibition space currently featuring Scottish landscapes, and all is free to enter. Also had a most delicious meal (highly recommend the chilli squid!) in Quails restaurant which offered good value and excellent quality of cooking. All in all, a fascinating and most worthwhile place to visit.

Called in today--13 August. Went to use the gents loos. The urinals had been recently filled with loo cleaner. The toilet was filthy--dried faeces on seat and in the bowl Not seen a cleaner in quite a while. Based on this I would query cleanliness. Drank the coffee and left !!!! The building is operated by Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon Council--reflects on this organisation.
