Butler Gallery, Kilkenny

The duty of the arts to bring inspiration and good cheer to the people. Re-ppened in a new venue in 2020, Butler Gallery in Kilkenny is the biggest addition to rural Ireland’s cultural portfolio in recent times. The gallery is named for Peggy Butler, whose husband Hubert Butler is the subject of the Netflix documentary ‘Witness to the Future’. In 2021, Butler Gallery was awarded a prestigious Architecture MasterPrize in the Restoration + Renovation category for the work undertaken by McCullough Mulvin Architects.
