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 by the chap looking after the 'Cork History' exhibition who added his expert knowledge as we walked around. And lunch in the popular restaurant is not to be missed.

The current exhibitions were both mediocre, there is some lovely permanent art on display and a lovely cabinet with cut glass pieces beside the base of the main staircase. Place is a bit of a maze also, and the staff only seem interested in their smartphones.
