National Gallery of Ireland, Merrion Square West, Dublin 2
Situated in beautiful Georgian Dublin on Merrion Square, this purpose built gallery opened its doors to the public in 1864. The gallery houses an impressive collection of Irish paintings including a collection of Jack B. Yeats own works (and those done by members of his family), along with notable Dutch and Italian works such as Caravaggio’s The Taking of Christ and Van Gogh’s Roof Tops in Paris.
The collection includes some 14,000 artworks, including 5,00 drawings, 5,00 prints, 2,500 oil paintings, not to mention some furniture, sculpture and other works of art.
The gallery has been extended several times down through the years as its collections increase, with the most recent wing - The Millennium added in 2002. This beautiful gallery is free to visit, although there may be admission charges to their exhibitions
