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.

National Gallery Of Ireland, Dublin Reviews - Write a Review
A wonderful gallery, recently rennovated. A lovely way to pass a couple of hours in the afternoon. The galleries are well laid out and cover an extensive collection of Irish and European art. It's free admission so there is really no excuse not to go.
The new extension building is inspiring. I was lucky enough to be able to view the Vermeer exhibition. Truly amazing. An expert photoshoper could not balance the light effect as good as Vermeer himself.
Excellent collection of paintings from old times. One can imagine the how artist manage to paint and capture the story on the canvas and paper during world wars and other hard time. It shows their dedication and affection to the art. Must visit for tourists and art lovers. Admission is free. Restrooms are there too!!!
The new renovations have let a lot more natural light into all the galleries and reorganisation has led to a much better display. I visited the Vermeer exhibition which just blew me away. I haven't much knowledge of the Dutch masters and this exhibition was both interesting and intriguing, leading me to do more research on Vermeer himself. I was also impressed with the current artists ' response to the exhibition. It gives context and helps everyone relate to a genre that at first glance can seem quite dry.
Excellent all round, especially considering that admission is free. New expanded building is impressive and collection, while not a match for the louvre or Prado is really good. Features a wide range of periods and styles and contains works by greats including Ruebens, Caravaggio, Velasquez and Titian
