Welcome to Scilly Art

Scilly Art is an Art Gallery and gift shop in the historical and charming town of Kinsale, Co.Cork. We stock a wide range of colourful gifts and homewares from around the globe along with art and crafts from local artists from Kinsale and Cork.

Many of our gift and homeware items are sourced from eco-friendly and socially conscious small producers, with an emphasis on recycling and the use of sustainable materials.


After qualifying as an Architect Maeve Cotter moved to West Cork and has lived in Kinsale for many years. The shop takes its name from the townland of Scilly nestled in a peninsula across from Kinsale harbour. It is said that Scilly is named after the fishermen who visited from the Scilly Isles long ago. Maeve paints mainly in oils and acrylics, taking inspiration from the colourful coastline and spectacular views of the natural beauty of Kinsale and its surrounds.
