    The Museum of Decorative Arts and History is in Collins Barracks which has a huge and interesting collection and also a very good restaurant for delicious lunches and snacks. Note that one reviewer here is confused and is reviewing paintings which hang in the National Gallery of Ireland which is in Merrion Square.

    A terrific small collection of paintings. I saw new Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Vermeer, van Gogh, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, and tons of Irish artist I was previously unknown to me. I was disappointed that I missed the Turner exhibition, with was on the wall, but covered with brown paper, and roped off from the public, FRUSTRATING, as he is one of my favorites. Oh, and it's free!

    Yea, another free museum! And another good one, this museum kind of picks up where the archeology museum leaves off with the history of Ireland over the last few hundred years. There are two sections half the museum is decorative arts (textiles, furniture, silver ware, ect.) and the other half is the history mostly of the English occupation and rebellion and all the wars the Irish have pariticipated in over the last 500 or so years.
