National Gallery of Ireland

  Merrion Square West & Clare St, D2      (+353)(0)1 661 5133     more than a year ago
Paintings, sculptures and objets d'art are all housed in this 19th Century building whose façade replicates that of the National History Museum. The new Millennium Wing has created additional gallery space with a striking contemporary edge. The Gallery is home to the national collection of Irish art and work by European Masters from Gainsborough to Goya, Vermeer to Velázquez and Picasso to El Greco. The Turner collection only goes on display every January - a throwback to the benefactor's original stipulation intended to protect and preserve his precious donation. Jack B. Yeats, the great 20th Century Irish artist and brother of poet Wiliam B. Yeats, heads up the indigenous collection, and changing exhibitions keep culture lovers coming back for more. Floor Plans, Access Guides and Tactile Picture Sets are available from the Info Desk, and Guided Tours, including those for visually & hearing impaired, can be booked by writing three weeks before your visit.
