Art Attractions and Galleries in Ireland

Ireland is home to a thriving art scene. Famed for its beautiful landscapes and scenery, Ireland has, for centuries, been the perfect muse for artists looking for their next strike of inspiration!

Today, the artistic tradition continues. In recent years Galway City, in particular, has become a thriving artistic hub. There is a very bohemian, artisan feel to Galway, with its narrow streets and colourful buildings, and this has nurtured the city's reputation as a haven for creative and artistic souls.

To help you find the right attractions for you, we have listed below all the best art galleries and destinations from across Ireland.
