“best coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

Zest at the Limerick City Gallery of Art has the absolute best coffee in the city. Why? I don't know.

They also have very good loose leaf tea (in a generous pot), nice cakes (recommended: toffee), and fairly good sandwiches and salad items -- nothing outside the norm but decent value. Generous rating is for the caffeinated beverages.

“Sparse”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

After walking a distance to find the museum, it was a terrible disappointment. Very few modern pieces of art set in a few large empty rooms. The majority of the people who were there seemed to be students working on art projects. The best part of it was that it was free admission and the beautiful gardens surrounding the building.

“Art for the Elite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

An incredible collection of paintings etc., but sadly depicting the sumptuary of a bygone age wherein only the privileged few, could partake.

“Free Entry and lovely landscapes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

I enjoyed the art which was all landscapes, Paul Henry, etc. A small collection but worth a visit. A lovely cafe for lunch or coffee and cake. The coffee was not very good but the cakes looked great.

“Always interesting exhibitions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I've been visiting LCGA for many years now and I always find something to engage me here. The recent re-development of the gallery has greatly enhanced the visitor experience with the addition of an arts and craft area and cafe, and the overhaul of the permanent collection gallery. In the past the permanent collection had been displayed in the 'Salon' style with paintings filling the walls from top to bottom, which is interesting in itself and allows for more paintings to be displayed at any one time. However, after the re-development the permanent collection is now exhibited in a more modern way with paintings at eye level and with the paintings displayed on a rotating basis under a variety of themes allowing for new ways of appreciating the collection. The rest of the gallery is given over to contemporary and avant garde exhibitions which are always thought-provoking and engaging. The gallery is a serene gem in the middle of the city and if you need them, the friendly staff are always at hand. Well worth a visit.
