It rains in Ireland frequently so its good to have alternative plans. Museums are my favorites, although they dont take a backseat to a sunny day! I thought the Crawford had a good balance in art genre's Classic, Abstact, modern, and even film. Centrally located I found it pretty handy. No large crowds made for a relaxing, quiet afternoon.

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.

I did not expect to find such a precious gallery in Cork. Very interesting, it hosts wonderful works on several floors. You will admire the works of Jack Yeats, Dorothy Cross, etc. You will see a collection of local paintings and sculptures, you will know a little Irish artists.

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 .
