Sunday 19th September Chester Beatty Library and Dublin Castle

On Sunday 19th September from 2pm Dublin Sketchers will draw out and about at the Chester Beatty Library and Dublin Castle

A vibrant National Cultural Institution, the Chester Beatty was once the private library of Sir Alfred Chester Beatty (1875 – 1968), a successful American mining engineer, collector and philanthropist, the Chester Beatty is also today a research library for scholars from all over the world.  It was described by the Lonely Planet as ‘not just the best museum in Ireland but one of the best in Europe. Join us for a lovely afternoon of sketching.  There are also plenty of coffee options locally.

Rather than meeting in a cafe or pub, we'll gather at the sculpture outside the library at 4pm. Remember to observe Covid rules.

If it's your first time, just come along with your materials and paper. Say hello to any fellow sketcher you see. Don't worry if you're late, we usually are!
If you would like your sketch added to the website, email to or post it to the Dublin Sketchers social WhatsApp if you're on that. If you're on Instagram use #dublinsketchers.Please edit your image so it is low resolution and properly oriented.
