Amazing gallery/art museum in the heart of Cork city, hosting both contemporary and historical. Every time I visited you will experience a new cultural highlight! Beautiful cafe on the ground level too!

This was my favorite part of Cork City, besides the traditional Irish music at Sin E. Unexpected sculpture gallery, and the Irish Arts and Crafts exhibit was really great...from lace-making to furniture to Celtic designs in metal. The cafe there had WONDERFUL food--my spinach and mushroom "pancakes" (crepes) came with sides of pickled cucumbers, beets, and greens...yum!

I really appreciate Ireland having fee art galleries and museums. I am glad that people get to enjoy these types of things no matter who they are. It is also nice for tourists such as myself. Just because I am on vacation doesn't mean that I have unlimited money to spend. I have to choose what to spend money on... More

The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and of course, the food is delicious. I take pride in sharing this experience with my friends who visit the City and without exception, customer service is... More

I enjoyed viewing the works at the museum. Was sorry to miss an upcoming exhibit but really, really enjoyed what they have on display. As you know, with most museums, they have vast works that are never on display - but what I liked about the Crawford was that on the top floor was a small exhibit of museum employees... More

We visited for brunch and a gallery wander. It is something I cannot recommend doing enough whether you live in Cork or are visiting. The quality of the food, service and over all atmosphere of the cafe is incredible. If this was London you would be paying double the price, queueing for hours and constantly hearing people name drop this.... More
