This gallery is a little way out of the centre - best to get the Luas tram. Art is, of course, very much a question of taste: we liked some parts, others frankly seemed weird. One section was photos of naked women - and some men - in vaguely erotic positions, with a collage created by sticking a picture of... More

This is the very first place I visited as soon as I arrived in Dublin. However, I found the collections and exhibitions rather disappointing as there are hardly any international major artists on display. This combined with the fact that the museum is rather far from the centre of Dublin makes me say that unless you are really interested in... More

This is an interesting building and gardens with great views of Dublin's Phoenix Park. Exhibitions change every few months. There is a good coffee bar in the cellar and a large ballroom or church which has a beautiful room which holds events. There is a very established geometrical shaped garden in the front and the grounds hold a large car... More

One of the first places I went to once arriving in Dublin. I walked to it from directly in the city center (a bit of a journ but you can always catch a bus) and found the atmosphere peaceful and relaxing. It's large enough that you can spend a lot of time in there, not busy or crowded with people... More

I have been coming here for years. The exhibitions here change every few months, so the content varies a lot, sometimes there are great exhibitions, sometimes not so great, it just depends. The rooms are big and there is a a lot of space for exhibitions. The grounds here are very nice too, and definitely worth looking around. There is... More

This is a most interesting venue. The garden area is a quiet spot near to a busy city centre. If there is a good exhibition on the galleries are excellent. Unfortunately sometimes the exhibitions feel a bit 'thin on the ground.' The coffee shop is very good and again a quiet spot to take a break. Well worth a visit... More

very, very strange "art." This is a nice castle like setting, maybe to enjoy a picnic lunch, but I recommend the Botanical Garden first ...sorry, stay on the " Hop off" bus for this one!

Nestled in an out of the way area, in a building that had been left to decay, sorry I don't remember what it had been, it is nevertheless a trip. We saw it when we took the hop on/hop off tourist bus.

I was really excited when this Museum opened way back in 1991 and initially it was worth a visit but when I visited in 2013 it was for the most part closed because it was being refurbished. Why a building on which a fortune was spent needed to be refurbished and why it took more than a year is a... More

Exhibitions were interesting but the building was outstanding and the highlight. Drinking coffee in the sunshine in the main courtyard was fab. The photography exhibit in the garden annex was really worth visiting
