That in just four average sized rooms and an entrance area that this Gallery can amaze, surprise, and create such conflicting moods with contemporary art. The staff are friendly, accessible and knowledgable as well. I love going back there.

You can always rely on the Butler Gallery for something completely different! The exhibition I visited was about morse code etc - it was more a documentation of communication methods rather than any interpretation or art. Nicely documented though.

It was great to see how things were back in the days of old. We were not disappointed with our visit and would definitely recommend it to family, friends and visitors.

Fabulous exhibition celebrating the launch of the Irish made animated movie 'The Song of The Sea.' Gallery is well kept and the displays are amazing, well worth a visit if you're about the castle this time of year.

The Butler Gallery in Kilkenny has an unusual exhibition running to October - materials prepared in the making of Oscar (TM!) nominated animated movie The Song of the Sea. The amount of work that went into it is hugely impressive. The variety of artistic talent...More
