Doolin Arts is the revolutionary wing of Hotel Doolin. We are a not-for-profit flying column of creative souls committed to supporting and defending the arts in the trenches of North Clare. Doolin Arts runs the annual Doolin Folk Festival, Hedge School Doolin and regular events in The Attic at Hotel Doolin. We will also be releasing music under the Doolin Arts Record Label, publishing books under Doolin Arts and producing independent films and supporting independent theatre.
This year we released our first album Cocooning Heart by Myles O’Reilly on the Doolin Arts Record Label and brought a travelling troupe of local musicians, wordsmiths & film-makers to our stage at Body & Soul Festival. Plans are afoot to publish our first book under the Doolin Arts imprint later this year and we are currently working on an independent film with a local film-maker which we hope to bring to a screen soon.
We are passionate about being part of a strong community of independent creatives on the west coast. Doolin’s location on the edge of the world is reflected in our ethos, we’re committed to art on the edge, embracing diversity and inclusivity. We are particularly excited about and attracted to artistic projects that make absolutely no commercial sense.
