The gallery is open during the week and Saturday it is also open till 8pm on Thursdays. There is a lovely staircase and nice pieces of art to see on the second floor. There is a little bit on the history of the building and on William Crawford. Its worth seeing if you are in the city centre.

A lovely building just off Cork's main street, it houses an interesting selection of paintings, both old and new. Free entrance and worth a visit, particularly on a rainy day. There's a nice cafe on the ground floor, serving home made food.

Located in the centre of the city - surrounded by restaurants & cafes - the permanent collection is very impressive for a small gallery - Henry Keating Murphy - lovely cafe on ground floor

I went here with a family member who is very much into art and he thoroughly enjoyed it. I also thought the layout and building was lovely.

You don't have to be an 'arty' person to wander about this gallery. This wonderful gallery is in a very nice part of town. Entry is free too which makes it ideal to pass the time or go see an exhibition.

This gallery is very nice, always quiet, with a great range of art. The old to modern architecture alone is beautiful. Very nice cafe, too.
