I enjoyed it. It's great if you see something different than what is described on the plaques. It is not for children as some of the art is more for the adult eye.

I was not a big fan of their collection of modern art, but I did like the Lucien Freud expo, which wasn’t free.

As it is not in Dublin centre -- if you're going to the Kilmainham Goal, make a side trip to the IMMA which is just across the street. It is a nice museum in beautiful surroundings. IMMA museum has free admission, except for the 5-year...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.
