Too cryptic for me..

Went here with herself, hadn't a notion what to expect. Nothing is as it seems. I didn't know what was real and what was part of the exhibition. An old lady who spoke in a... read more

Went here with herself, hadn't a notion what to expect. Nothing is as it seems. I didn't know what was real and what was part of the exhibition. An old lady who spoke in a booming voice was asking where the restaurant was she kept asking and I was just looking at her editing or something else to happen she... More

I visited the surrealist exhibition which was quite interesting but not spectacular. It is a matter of taste though.

This building is beautiful. Each trip will be different depending on what is being exhibited. For our trip the exhibition was not one we would chose to go and see and did not enjoy it. It was not made clear to us that part of this building was free. If we had known this we would not have paid to... More

Outside this place is beautiful: the courtyard, the grasses, the building itself. Inside I was underwhelmed. Only one wing was open and in that wing was just one exhibit. I didn't love the current exhibit, but maybe the next one will be better.

Very nice employees, good service and free lockers! The 'Love' exhibition was very interesting and the art very.. modern indeed. Overall I loved it.

Oh dear - this should be so much better. When you consider the modern art collections in other capital cities (London and Edinburgh, to name but two) I'm afraid that this is very much the poor relation. There are so many things that need fixing: better examples of the best Irish/European/world art and much more of it; better signage; better... More

If this museum was free thenI would consider it a good deal. We went because my wife wanted to see it. There was not much good art there. A lot of it was nudity and made no sense. How two people having sex is modern art is beyond me. The courtyard is beautiful. Didn't try the cafe. I will say... More

Smaller than I thought but saw some great exhibitions but just loved the place. The huge open courtyard, the long walk down to the gate. Place really got to me in a good way.

The exhibition that is on now is about relationship, love and sex and the art history of these themes. There were many touching and rather interesting pieces of art there and it still gives me something to think about even a few days later. I went to see some other parts of the gallery too but I was probably too... More

Only one exibition, that was great, but not worth the trip. HOWEVER: Best lunch restaurant I have ever encountered at a museum. Home made food. And the cakes. !, ! and !!!
