MEI Cultural Spotlight #13 – Art in Ireland

May 06, 2016

This time we are going from middle to highbrow. Ireland has a rich heritage and reputation for producing quality artists and skilled people from Jack B Yeats to Francis Bacon. This week we are going to look at Art in Ireland and highlight the galleries and museums that we have to offer.

National Gallery of Ireland




The National Gallery of Ireland is located on Merrion Square West Dublin 2, just a short stroll from Trinity College.

With an impressive collection of masterpieces by world renowned artists and Sculptures.A beautiful bright modern building with gift shop and restaurant the gallery is the perfect way to spend a day off. there is no cost for admission to the Gallery (they do accept donations, which can be put in boxes at the door) so it’s one of the best options for something to do if on a budget too.
