Cow House Studios is named for its practical origins on the O'Gorman family farm, where for over 250 years the family has lived and worked the land.

Nestled at the foot of the scenic Blackstairs Mountains, Cow House Studios is located three miles from the village of Rathnure, County Wexford, Ireland.

Cow House Studios is a family run business. Established in 2007 by artists Rosie O’Gorman and Frank Abruzzese. They have transformed the function of the Cow House from a beautiful stone structure used for bedding cows into a studio committed to facilitating contemporary visual arts practice.

Cow House Studios' aim is to support contemporary visual arts practice. The center hopes to foster a deep curiosity for one's surroundings and encourage further engagement with the creative process as a catalyst for independent thought. To this end, the center provides art education for children, teens and adults; facilities for colleges, schools and artist led groups; and an artist-in-residence program for professional artists.
