Great place. A good mix on display ranging from the ancient to the modern. One very striking picture is "Men of the South" which I saw thirty plus years ago in the National Gallery in Dublin, where I guess it must have been on loan....More

Has an exhibition of work by Harry Clarke that always inspires. Also the cafe serves a standard of food that demonstrates why Cork is the food capital of Ireland.

Well worth a visit. Especially on a rainy day to pass an hour or so. Some really interesting paintings. There was a small cafe which we didn't visit but menu sounded lovely. You have to visit the toilets!!!

This gallery is worth visiting as it is free and has a few interesting pieces. My wife and I did think that the pieces could have been curated in a more coherent way.

A wonderfully wide ranging display of pictures, sculptures and videos displayed attractively in galleries both old and new. A good central location - ideal for a wet day

A 'must visit' when in Cork. Pleased to see the Greek sculpture exhibition and the atmospheric Harry Clarke 'Eve of St Agnes' stained glass section still in place. But also an intriguing and unusual modern poetry display and some excellent art. The visit was enhanced...More
