Leisurely morning stroll through the gallery. The before & after photos of the re-build were very interesting. Cafe for brunch in a great location, great menu choices. Easy parking right out front.

I had looked forward to seeing this building and was delighted to visit. Part of it was not available on the day because a new exhibition was being installed, but I really enjoyed the collection, especially for the emphasis on local artists. So nice to see!

You do not need to pay to enter this sweet gallery downstairs from the Kilkenny Castle entry. It's right before the Castle cafe. When I was there the Gallery had a show from a local artist whose paintings looked like mosaics. Kind of like mosaic maps. Worth stopping in.

I have seen a wide variety of exhibitions here over the years.It is always worth a look and its free to visit. Helpful staff and sometimes there are audio devices to guide you through the exhibition.

That in just four average sized rooms and an entrance area that this Gallery can amaze, surprise, and create such conflicting moods with contemporary art. The staff are friendly, accessible and knowledgable as well. I love going back there.

We loved our 45-minute visit thru the gallery! Joan was the docent there at the time and she was a delight to talk with regarding each artist and their work. If you're in Ireland to experience true Ireland, then take the time to see it thru an Irish artist's work! You'll walk away with something special to remember.
