December 2016 CDP Theme Day - Transitions



The Anchor Arts Gallery opened on June 29th, 2012, previously it was known as the Hair O' the Dog pub.    The arts centre showcased the creativity and skills of the local artisan community. Unfortunately, it closed down after the owner died.  It was then sold and bought and the word is that it will be converted into a Bed & Breakfast (that is what I was told by someone in the community)..  It's located right down next to Moville Pier and the Moville Coastal Walk begins  only a few meters from here.  It's a great  location for whatever it becomes.

  1. I can't see why you call it the worst thing being a B&B they have enhanced the look of a dull looking building and restored it back to use

    1. It's not a bad thing, I said "the word is" not the worst. It's hard to read the font sometimes.:)

  4. The building has been thoroughly modernised and looks like it will be an ideal B&B now. Great choice for the theme.

  12. I think the Arts Gallery was a better idea, but we have now different time, all locals died, everything is coming from China. Even the whole Viking souvenirs in Bergen shops. Terrible.

  13. The second photo is a bit of a let-down, I have to say.

  16. I hope they decide to call it the Hair O' the Dog B&B.

  17. Hard to imagine it is the same place. Good luck to the new owners. Running a B&B is not easy.

  18. That's quite a transformation for a building that has a lot of history already. It's not finished yet, but it does look as if it lost some of its personality though it's in a top spot. (Re: Your comment today...You took only 4 suitcases?? That's all?? That's truly, truly amazing!! I'm in awe.)
