This little art museum is hit and miss I have found. It just depends on what is on show. Nice to wander through if you are looking for something to do but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. Nice cafe attached to it and People's Park is adjacent.

Located near the public park and the McCourt Museum, this free art museum might be a good stop if it's raining, but I would suggest cavorting in the park if the weather is fine. There is a reasonably priced cafe on the premises.

This is a small museum which houses the City's collection of paintings, photographs, sculpture and other media. These are primarily from the past couple of centuries. A lot of the space appears to be dedicated to exhibitions so it is hard to gauge the full size and quality of the permanent collection. What was on display is primarily Irish artists,... More

Been here a couple of times and its well worth a visit. Its free entry and you could pleasantly while away an hour or two. The location is wonderful, especially if you have any interest in Georgian architecture. Exhibits are interesting and I believe are changed regularly.

Great place to stop and check out. It is free to the public and offers contemporary pieces. It is also located right next to a beautiful park.

This is a nice place to visit if you have some spare time. It's located just beside People's Park and entry is free. The exhibition changes regularly which keeps things interesting. There's also a great cafe attached so you can have coffee and a cake after you've enjoyed the art.

There was a special exhibition and hence the permanent collection was not there. The temporary exhibit was simply horrible, a complete waste of anyone's time.

Limerick City Gallery is a must see attraction in Limerick. As well as showcasing the work of local and national living Irish artists it also has a far reaching international links with the major biennale exhibition Ev+a. Check out the Cleeves Space, Ormston House, the Sailors House and the Belltable which are part of the Ev+a Venues also.

Very disappointed. I was in there last year and it was fascinating, with lots of great art on display and a really interesting talk by two women who really knew and appreciated the collection. When I went this week, the art works had been cleared out and replaced with various slide-shows, installations and ... not sure really. One room had... More
