A great free day out in Dublin

My friends and I had a lovely trip to the IMMA. We were able to catch the 145 bus to Heuston Station and from there it is only a short walk to the Museum. We were lucky to visit... read more

Good thing the museum was free. Aside from a few photographs, many of the pieces and exhibits were not interesting or thought provoking. It's nice there is a facility for up and coming artists to have their works displayed but I have been to more thoughtful contemporary art musuems.

My husband and I are not big modern art fans, but it was right across the street from the Kilmainham jail, it is free, and it helped pass the time until we could do our tour at the jail. The art itself is modern, if you like that sort of thing you will love this place. We enjoyed the architecture... More

It was a bit of walk to the museum. You might want to reconsider it if you are thinking of walking there in winter. We were not particularly thrilled about the exhibits. The place could be a bit creepy after sundown.

I am more of a fan of the French Impressionists than modernist movements but I still enjoyed visiting this Museum. Walking to the main building through the lovely parkland was enjoyable and it is not just the surrounding greenery which makes it a good experience. I liked the funky art display as you walked towards the building. Mock road signs... More

Short walk from the Gaol - one of the stops on the Red Bust City Tours. Beautiful grounds and walk up to museum (from Gaol). Some interesting displays to see\watch - free entry - and not too many. Well worth it if you are going to the Gaol as well and have a couple of hours to take this in.

Modern art isn't really my preferred type of art but my boyfriend loves it. There were a few exhibitions but for me there wasn't anything breathtaking. Very helpful staff though and a nice relaxing atmosphere!

A trip to IMMA is certainly worth while. The old hospital it is housed in is a beautiful place to visit and the exhibitions were very good. The museum is very accessible and it is free!

Having read existing reviews I decided to ignore the negative ones and visit anyway. Mistake. Even though we were walking we had trouble finding it as signage was seriously lacking. iPhone to the rescue! Once there it was just about impossible to find the cafe as the only small sign there was was not followed up anywhere so we had... More
