This is an amazing place to visit because the building itself is very historic, being the former Customs House which was built in 1724. It is also the home of a wide range of art treasures and is well worth visiting.

Lovely building ideally located in the city centre, I've been visiting the Crawford for a long time now and I always enjoy it. The gallery seriously needs updating though, feels like it hasn't changed in years! Cafe is enjoyable but service is so so.

Permier art gallery in cork - there is a coffee shop in the gallery and it's right beside the Cork Opera House.

The gallery is very impressive and boasts a wide range of artists and styles. The café on the ground floor is superb. Highly recommend breakfast in the café and then a stroll around the beautiful gallery.

I felt surrounded by history and the real Cork character, a highly well-spent afternoon. The staff were great and went out of their way to show me around to the different artists and paintings.

A medium sized gallery, but very representative of all that is good in Irish art. Special exhibitions are mounted regularly and admission is free. There is a very good restaurant in the gallery. A visit is highly recommended
