If this is to be one of Dublin's main attractions then it will have to do a lot lot more. A bit off the beaten track but accesible by short walk fron the 'Heuston' tram stop. The building which used to be an old elegant hospital but it was quite hard to find many items of modern art! Perhaps we... More

The location is fabulous -- another successful old meets new. Be warned, this is contemporary and modern art so it can be a little baffling (but I like being confounded). The exhibits are exciting and the layout and curation strong. This could really be a good venue if Dublin were to have its own biennale. I think Dublin should

Visited by accident and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a beautiful building, don't miss the section where it explains the history of the hospital/ museum. The collection was interesting but the highlight was the cafe. The food was fantastic, the best meal we had on our trip to Dublin, it really was top restaurant quality.

IMMA's location is absolutely superb - beautiful views of the grounds, buildings and a lovely walk towards Kilmainham Gaol. The museum itself was free, so good value for money. The art on display probably isn't everyone's cup of tea, but worth a visit - some well known names in the art world are on display at present. A small collection,... More

I visited here for 2 reasons, one because I had not been to IMMA since its renovation in 2013 and I was in Dublin and had time to spare. I appreciate all kinds of art and creativity, but IMMA really let me down. The grounds, building and gardens are just excellent- really worth a look! I asked a few staff... More

Visited this Museum at the end of March as my niece was exhibiting a piece of her work in the Beholder's Choice category. This is when you have to finish the piece yourself by looking at it. Found it very interesting and loved all of the entries. But most of all I loved the grounds - spent years in Dublin... More

I wouldn't head here just for the art, but I still think this is a great place to visit, and would definitely recommend spending a few hours visiting this and other attractions in the area. It's nice to have a quick walk around the Museum, which after all is free, but on a nice day you should spend more time... More

The museum is very big, alone there is almost nothing in it. The park is the nicest thing of the museum. The artwork is not the most special.
