A medium sized gallery, but very representative of all that is good in Irish art. Special exhibitions are mounted regularly and admission is free. There is a very good restaurant in the gallery. A visit is highly recommended

Some beautiful paintings, especially the unique examples of the benefactors of the gallery and the local working people. There was a stained glass exhibition on while we were there - amazing. There was a very good cafe with excellent food and service.
