The Barn at Fellowsfield is a creative and inspirational venue set on a small working farm in County Kildare, yet only 36kms from Ireland’s capital city of Dublin. Converted from a farm building by leading international photographer, Tony Parkes, and his wife Louise who is a writer, it has a uniquely calm, warm and friendly atmosphere that encourages innovation, the lively exchange of ideas, a passion for training and knowledge, or simply relaxing when you want to get away from it all.
