For the lovers of art, the National Gallery of Ireland is a must visit place. European art at its best has been displayed here. There are also a number of American paintings on these prestigious walls. Paintings from celebrated artists like Picasso, Monet, Titian, Poussin and many more, are available in this gallery. Many antique objects of 18th and 19th Century Europe have also been proudly put up on display. The gallery contains the crème de la crème of Irish art. Water-colours and sculptures are found in large number inside the gallery. Free tour guiding is provided to the visitors. These antique treasures are well maintained and preserved by the gallery authority.
The gallery is surrounded by lush green trees which provide a pollution free environment. It also has many small conference rooms where the presentation of various specimens is done. It is perhaps not surprising that literary greats like George Bernard Shaw spent many days roaming around the rooms of the gallery. Be sure to put this on your itinerary if you are interested in art.
- The rooms will begin to clear 15 minutes before the Gallery closes.

A lovely gallery with a mix of old and new art. Very well laid out and is wheelchair/buggy friendly. Always love visiting whenever in town. It’s s great mini break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Definitely recommend visiting.
We always visit here when we are in town. Marvellous place and my daughter enjoys it as much as I did when I came here as a child. There's a lovely mix of old and new space which compliment each other. We were here for hours last Sat and and going back again this Sat as we didn't explore all of the new section together. The art area for children is truly a great idea, lovely to sit and watch the kids create art. You can take the work away or display it on a board behind the desks. There is a current exhibition in the prints section about animals my daughter loved, recommended and free! The shop for an art gallery is reasonably priced and there is always stock reduced. We ended up leaving with fridge magnets and a poster. A beautiful and important cultural oasis near the gorgeous Merrion Square. Please visit if you are near there, it is so worth it!!
Great collection and the recently completed renovations have transformed the gallery. I love the modern addition. Great food in restaurant, which is very open and airy & really helpful staff. You need to come back multiple times, to really appreciate the whole collection, as it can be overwhelming if you try to fly around in one visit. Best savoured in small chunks.
Amazing collection of art, sculptures and historical pieces. Free entry too, which makes this a must visit. Very knowledgeable staff who will answer any questions you have. Good amount of art from Irish artists too which shows the history of Irish art. Expect to spend a good 3 hours here!
Amazing! For young and old this gallery is first class. The collections, events, facilities and dedication from all the staff. There is a warm atmosphere from all working there. It's well worth keeping an eye out for new collections and exhibitions because as well as the amazing permanent collection they exhibit such beautiful and inspiring work! I can't say enough really!!!
