When I visited they had a really good exhibition called "Cumann: An audio map Limerick" which I really enjoyed. The other exhibitions at the time was good as well, but didn't really leave any impact at me. I guess the experience depends much on what exhibitions they have at the time, but since it's located in the centre of Limerick,... More

I'm ashamed to say that even though I live in Limerick City that I had never visited here until Culture Night 2016. I was left feeling disappointed by the exhibition....there was no information explaining what it was supposed to represent or why the artist chose each subject. The guides who were there on the night seemed more interested in chatting... More

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.
