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.

Had the falafel at the cafe and it was amazing, but I do wish the portions were a bit bigger. On a side, the art gallery itself is super nice to walk around and check out .

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

Love to walk around here for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are alway interesting exhibits. Often there is an audiovisual exhibit upstairs. The cafe downstairs is a lovely place for breakfast, lunch or just coffee and cake.
