The National Gallery of Ireland is not vast like the National Gallery in London but it still has a very good collection with some outstanding works. Unique is the Jack B. Yeats collection. The paintings and sculpture collection covers most of the European masters. A particular favourite of mine is Caravaggio's The Taking of Christ, which was the subject of a engaging book called The Lost Painting. The building's recent modern extension is also very attractive.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

First of all, no idea why the address is in Dublin but anyway...
I was really looking forward to this one and found it a bit sad how out of date and shabby it was. I understand it's a free museum but at what point do you start charging a small fee just for the upkeep. The downstairs was especially hard to take as it was very stuffy and the carpet smelled awful as if it had water damage. It was hard to enjoy yourself or slow down as often the museum itself distracted. I really hope they are able to do some of the renovation work they want to do badly and that the museum is returned to its original glory.

This is the National Galley of IRELAND of course - vbro seem to have got the headline confused. Anyway its a a super place to have lunch. The art is nice also and there are some lovely collections. But do have lunch there - the food is really nice. Great place to keep on your schedule for a wet day.

The National Gallery of Scotland is a museum of just the right size: something that you can see completely in an hour. And, it's free! It's at the edge of Princes Park and has an cafe with some outdoor seating. The interior rooms are beautiful.

A view of the Millennium wing of the Gallery, the Gallery has a fine collection of Irish & European Art. From Dutch Masters to Caravaggio's The Taking of Christ, & boasting a fine Jack B Yeats collection, this Gallery is a must see in the centre of Dublin.

Love art? YOu will love the National Gallery of Scotland. Not only are its buildings filled with treasured masters old and new but the buildings themselves are fine pieces of art. During the Edinburgh Festival many fringe acts can bee seen offering "taster" sessions in this area.
