A beautiful and unique place to visit for those with a love of art or history.The gallery is sited in the former Drogheda Franciscan Church and part of the Friary; known locally as the ‘High Lane Church’. The Franciscans gifted the property to the people of Drogheda when they ended their 760 year association with the town in 2000. The buildings date from the early 19th century, though elements date back to earlier times.

Was there for the Janet Mullarney exhibition which was beautifully laid out in this lovingly converted former Franciscan church. the permanent collection is well worth a look too and the connected cafe offers lovely lunch options if making a day trip out of a visit here.

Originally the Franciscan Church locally know as "the highlane" now a lovely art gallery. This lovely church is preserved inside and houses permanent and visiting exhibitions. There is also a cafe attached to the gallery where you can relax after your visit

Highlanes regularly changes the exhibits so there's usually something new. Of course sometimes the exhibition is less exciting than others, and this time the photo studies of a baroque orchestra wasn't particularly exhilarating. However, that's finished now and there's something new showing now. This is a free attraction, and the building alone is worth visiting - it's an old church... More

This is a modern museum located in a deconsecrated 19th Century Franciscian Church. Good collection of items from Drogheda's past and a good varied collection of modern art and paintings of local scenes. Good restaurant facilities

Granted it is small but its definately worth a look not many art galleries can boast having their own original white marble alter. Very friendly helpful staff the museum is bright and airy and often shows art by local schools but isnt that a great way of encouraging the future VanGogh's and Dali's. If you are in the area this...

This place is a converted Friary and provides the town with a useful art gallery suitable for travelling exhibitions. At vthe time we visited the upper level accommodated children's art from various parts of Ireland but what there is to see will depend when you visit. There's also a library, inherited from the Friary, which is there to offer you... More
