A Brief History

Dermot O'Grady, owner-director of The Green Gallery is particularly discerning about the artists he exhibits, thus ensuring that his customers can be guaranteed an excellent investment.

Open 7 days a week The Gallery is extremely accessible, being situated on the top floor of the St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, which is on the corner of fashionable Grafton Street and St Stephen's Green, in the very heart of cosmopolitan Dublin.

Dermot O’ Grady is a totally self made Businessman. A family man with four children and a loving and understanding wife, Phyll, Dermot has always been interested in Arts, from as far back as 1985 when he worked in the Hotel Business, his dream was to open an Art Gallery in his native Dublin. First beginning in a humble 300sq-ft unit in the Westbury Mall, which was made available on a temporary basis until it was let, Dermot tried an experiment of letting the wall space to Artists for a monthly fee. This worked quite well until the shop unit became let. 

After a period off about a year Dermot rented a premises on Sth Great George’s St and opened a Gallery there. He called it The Castle Art Gallery. Again Dermot rented out wall space to artists on a monthly basis. Sth Great George’s St at the time was very quiet and the Gallery had very little passing trade. So Dermot saw that the only thing to do was to get nearer to the centre of the action. So in 1995 Dermot made enquiries with the management of The St Stephens Green Ctr as to the possibility of renting the vacant corridor on the top floor. Michael Stokes the general manager took on the idea with great enthusiasm and The Green Gallery was born. The Green Gallery is now trading successfully and has become extremely popular for artist and collector alike with its brightly lit and easily approachable casual style. Working on a commission basis the Gallery enjoys phenomenal passing trade and has gained an excellent reputation.
