On the top floors they were running an exhibition based on photographer Pieter Hugo works. It's worth a visit. Entry is free and you can voluntarily contribute some money. On the ground floor, photography specialised bookshop. Hidden in a very nice court in Temple Bar.

I would assume this place changes its set up every now and then, at the moment it is housing an exhibition dedicated to the female instrumentalist Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh who played in the Irish trad band, Altan. As a venue, it is easily accessible, sitting...More

I visited to see the show of photographs from the 1960's. Below each picture was an explanation that helped to give it context, life and "colour". They were mostly taken in the west of Ireland, where I was traveling in the mid 1990s, and saw...More

Gorgeous exhibition of (mostly) 1960's Dublin (and other times/places) currently exhibited. Well worth a look.
