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

Went here on a Sunday when I wasn't busy. They were in the middle of transitioning to a new exhibit. Took about an hour to get through the main exhibit. There is also a cafe :) must do on lazy Sundays or when you just want to see some art.

Though small by European standards, there's a lovely energy at this museum with a good and growing collection.

Really enjoy the food here. Always feel healthy and full after their salads. It's a very fresh and enlivening space to enjoy.

I regularly visit Limerick City Gallery. I love that I can get a little injection of culture- just popping in. The gallery is in a great location in Pery Square at the park.

A very pleasant free attraction with an excellent restaurant overlooking the park. The art collection is small but very broad, ranging from modern works and photographs and plenty of older paintings. The collection is displayed in just a few rooms and looks very crowded but the curator has tried hard to place the works together in thought-provoking ways. We were... More
