Sarah Walker Gallery is situated in the south west of Ireland in the fishing port of Castletownbere. Sarah Walker's paintings may be seen in the gallery all year round. The gallery opened in 2000 on Bank Place, Castletownbere with a group exhibition of local artists.

In August of 2000 Rachel Parry exhibited her sculptures alongside the paintings of Esther Balazs.

In the summer of 2001 the gallery held two exhibitions, one of design-work and the other of paintings.

The gallery moved to a new premises in June 2003, to a new location right on the waterfront at the west end of the pier. It is now housed in an old stone building originally a carriage house, a very atmospheric environment with water lapping at the old stone walls and plenty of room for separate gallery and studio space.

In the summer of 2004 there was an exhibition of a selection of artists connected to Beara.

Also with Beara connections, Frieda Meaney exhibited prints and paintings about a house in Beara which her friend Monika Fabig (Germany) had photographed. That exhibition of summer 2005 included those photographs and a short film about the Dursey cable car by Margaret Fitzgibbon.

In 2006 the gallery showed work by two young award-winning artists, David Grannell and Mike Hannon, just graduated from the Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork.

In 2007, major renovations were in progress on the gallery building.

In the summer of 2008, the Gallery re-opened. The opening show featured graduates from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Edia Connole and Sabina McMahon, and the Crawford College of Art in Cork, Rona Neligan and Sarah Kearney.

The Summer Show 2009 was a selection of graduate artists from the Crawford, NCAD and IADT including Michelle O'Shea, Mari Buttimer and Nedyalka Panova from the Crawford, David Eager Maher, Niall Dooley, James O'hAodha and Kim Murphy from NCAD and Aoife O'Sullivan from IADT.
