Walked from Dublin centre for a visit we had been looking forward to for some time. Should have been open at 11.30 but was closed for 'staff training'. This just shows the contempt of staff for visitors

This is not far from the Gaol so as it was free we decided to give it a go. The building itself looks amazing from the outside with lovely gardens the art, however, was not so good. OK I'm not into modern art but honestly...More

IMMA is a great place with a nice cafe and book shop and cultural events for things like Heritage Week and Culture Night! It hosts visiting displays of modern art, but, for the next few years it will be showing the work of Lucian Freud...More

We visited the IMMA as they have an exhibition of Lucian Freud running (will be running until 2021). There is an entry fee but it is free on Tuesdays. The IMMA is in the old Royal Hospital, Kilmainham which used to be home to Chelsea...More

Best parts about my IMMA visit were the building exterior and the gardens. The museum exhibits were non-existent. Thankfully, no entrance fee.

Amazing place with beautiful gardens! Now in the autumn it’s more beautifull! ❤️❤️ At the moment there’s an exhibition of Freud (painter), it costs € 8, but on Tuesday is free admission!

I typically really enjoy modern art so I looked forward to visiting Irish Museum of Modern Art. The building is interesting architecturally, but that only goes so far. I was not very impressed with this exhibit. The public tour is free and not very exciting...More

Found the content somewhat unexciting, but the buildings interesting, There is a reasonable book shop where I found myself splurging!

I specifically visited IMMA for the exhibition currently showing, As Above, So Below, which is a superb collection of occult art from all over the world. It was stunningly brilliant and far surpassed every expectation I'd had (which had been high in the first place!)....More

I must say that I was pretty disappointed with the museum. The information on the Internet was that admission is free. In fact only small part of the gallery is free and the rest of the exhibitions has entrance fee. The collection is very small...More

Yes they are in English as that is the main spoken language in Ireland. But in my opinion, you are wasting your time visiting this museum.
