This exhibition follows the course of the River Lee from its origins in the Shehy Mountains and Gougane Barra in the west to its meeting with the Celtic Sea at the mouth of Cork Harbour.

Artworks from the 1750s through to the present are featured in the exhibition, as it traces perspectives of the river and the stories it has carried and collected.

Much loved paintings, ranging from John Butts’ View of Cork from Audley Place (c.1750) and George Mounsey Wheatley Atkinson’s Paddle Steamer Entering the Port of Cork (1842), are joined by the work of artists Sarah Grace Carr, Kate Dobbin, John Fitzgerald, Robert Gibbings, Nathaniel Grogan, Patrick Hennessy, Samuel McDonnell, and George Petrie.
