This museum surpasses by far the mere, lacklustre of the Lewis Glucksman Gallery in UCC. It has so much quality exhibits. Ranging from the Greco-Roman sculptures on the ground floor to the numerous oil canvas paintings. It also not just focuses on Irish Art, but there are quite a few contemporary contiental paintings. Well organised and picturesque. The atmosphere was... More

Just beside of the Cork Opera House. Lots of regional exhibitions. The entrance is free. I was not impressed, but this is my private opinion. Good place by rainy day.

The Crawford is a great gem in the centre of the city. Aside from the permanent collections - the Harry Clarke exhibition on the top floor is a must-see - there is always something happening. I like to keep an eye on the notices outside for new events and try to visit every so often. It's a really nice space... More

This is a really nice place to visit at your ease. A very low key, welcoming and informative environment. It is so cool to have such a resource in the city centre and the tea rooms are like a flash from the past, great standard and well proceed.

Right in the heart of town, the Crawford is amazing as an underused asset. I love to wander through for a bit of quiet time every now and then. The Harry Clarke room is simply fantastic.

The Gallery is home to the many styles and formats of Art that you would except to see in the capitals of any major city. Free admission makes this a must see attraction for Art both local and foreign, new and old. There is a café on site that is very good value and provides an atmosphere only a gallery... More

Really enjoyed my visit. Had no idea that so much wonderful exhibits were there. Enthralled by the Watson Archive Exhibition consisting of over one thousand works on paper, including records, account books and other material relating to a stained-glass studio that flourished in Youghal in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
