The National Photographic Archive is just on the corner of Meeting House Square, is free to enter and the staff very welcoming/open. The 'Photo Detectives' exhibition currently running (as of September 2017) is quite interesting and nicely presented. Very well worth popping in for half-an-hour.

It is like a little photo museum. Free admission. At the moment you can see several photos of World War I. Very interesting and not too big.

Right in the centre of Temple Bar, this branch of the National Library holds top-class photo exhibitions, both from their own collections & from other sources. Well worth a visit & it's FREE!
