Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    There is 1 Vermeer here in the permanent collection but we were here for a Rembrandt and Vermeer show. You can't go wrong with good material.
    We spoke with a docent who was very informative,otherwise had the run of the place as it was early. There is a Renoir, Rodin,Rothko and others...something for everyone. Sometimes art galleries can be overwhelming (I'm looking at you Louvre) so you can be just blasé about great art after a few hours--which is sad. Not here.
    It's not so big that you feel you've missed out. Can someone put carpet down in a museum? I imagine it's hard to clean and gets worn out but good God art can be painful!

    The volunteers and staff working at the gallery were very helpful and knowledgeable. And the exhibitions change regularly. Definitely worth going if you’re in Dublin City!

    I visited the Gerard Byrne’s gallery on a rainy day and had the fortunate opportunity to meet Gerard Byrne and his beautiful wife Agatha. They both so kind and patient to share the experience and stories behind the art work. The gallery not only showcases Gerard’s latest published book - Turing Corners, but also other exquisite creations. His paintings are vibrant, transporting viewers to the scenes and allowing them to experience emotions and interactions between people through his artwork. I look forward to the upcoming exhibition!!!

    We visited The Icon Walk with our tour guide Patrick during his 4-hour called “Dublins best kept secrets”. It is a community of artists who have transformed back roads into a living art project. Lots of dedicated artists make the Icon Factory to a fun place to visit, buy pieces of art or some unique souvenirs to support this project. Take some time to have a chat with e.g. Anthony about art, Dublin and the world. You will not regret it.
    The Icon Factory is under threat because the landlord wants to use the space for a restaurant and the artists have not yet found a new space. I really do not understand why the city does not support and promote such a great place!

    We went to see a Royal Irish Academy of Music opera. The opera was excellent. The space it was in was modern space with bench seating on either seating on either side. The lobby was complete with bar for before and after the show. The center was also hosting an art exhibition and lectures about disabled artists.

    It might not be the cleanest place in the world it it is strong in character. North Great Georges Street was built in the 1780s as a very fashionable street. The Cobalt cafe is located in the entrance hall, ground floor front and back rooms and in the garden of the original house which has not been over-restored.
    We had a beetroot salad, and a brie sandwich. Both were tasty and with apot of tea cost lest than €20 for two.

    I consider this as one of the side activities just outside the walls of st.stephen green park.

    You will definitely pass by it if you are in Dublin on a non-rainy day.

    if you are a visitor to this beautiful city or indeed a local, there is one city institution that you must see and that is the National Art Gallery on Merrion Square. Then primed with all that magic and colour your next visit must be to the Doorway Art Gallery a short distance from its doors. This elegant two-story emporium of art is, in my opinion, the best art gallery in city, with all manner of art displayed and with price tags don't immediately send you running for the door! I was like a child in a sweet shop when I first discovered this wonderful place and although some of the pieces I fell in love with were beyond my current budget, the two wonderful ladies who run the gallery Denise and Deirdre, like the proverbial godmothers were able to make my dreams come through by offering extremely flexible payment plans. There is no whiff an of exclusivity here, the only criteria is that you love art. So, if you do and if you want to own that special piece for yourself or for a friend take some time out of your busy schedule and pay them a visit you won't regret it.

    Discovered last February (I was just passing next to it with a friend and bought some prints), it is a little space full of art. If you have an empty wall, go there and you'll find something to make it look good. Very kind people will welcome you.

    “Love this gallery, the owners are so friendly and welcoming and encourage you to ask questions.
    There is a great selection of art, the ceramics collection alone makes Gallery Zozimus worth a visit.
    Definitely will be back.”
