Dunguaire Castle - Historic Ireland Canvas Print
This historic Ireland canvas print features the beauty of Dunguaire Castle. Chances are if you've toured Ireland's west coast, you've at least paused near this 16th century tower house near Kinvara. It's seen in this artwork reflecting in the waters of Galway Bay.
The historic Dunguaire Castle was built in 1520 by the O'Hynes Clan. Its restoration began in the last century. In 1924 it was purchased by Oliver St. John Gogarty, a famous Irish surgeon and literary figure. The repairs he began were finished by Christobel Lady Amptill who purchased the castle in 1954. Today the castle belongs to Shannon Heritage who open the castle to visitors in the summer season. My own visit to Ireland was in the winter, so although I've seen this beautiful tower house, it was not up close and personal. It definitely made an impression on me anyway.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
