A beautiful and unique place to visit for those with a love of art or history.The gallery is sited in the former Drogheda Franciscan Church and part of the Friary; known locally as the ‘High Lane Church’. The Franciscans gifted the property to the people of Drogheda when they ended their 760 year association with the town in 2000. The buildings date from the early 19th century, though elements date back to earlier times.

We wandered in to this tucked away church building and were delighted to find it was free, with exhibitions covering the top floor and huge space on the floor below. For a small, quiet Irish town it was brilliant to see a venue displaying both...More

It's free. They sometimes also run classes, which you may have pay for, but entry to the exhibition space is free.
