I was not a big fan of their collection of modern art, but I did like the Lucien Freud expo, which wasn’t free.

As it is not in Dublin centre -- if you're going to the Kilmainham Goal, make a side trip to the IMMA which is just across the street. It is a nice museum in beautiful surroundings. IMMA museum has free admission, except for the 5-year...More

It's not on the typical tourist path (we took a bus from the city center and then walked 10 minutes), but the grounds and artwork are amazing. The museum is free except for the Lucien Freud project. PAY to see that exhibit. It is worth...More

The walk down to the IMMA from the Gaol is absolutely stunning. The picturesque tree lined walkway is like the ones you see in films. Keep your wits about you though as whilst we were there some escaped animals were roaming the grounds, thankfully we're...More

Stay away and visit the national gallery or the National museum or the Epic or the jail-- really anywhere but here. Awful art. No gift shop. Endless walk to see nothing and close to the very very worst pub in Dublin. Seriously. Hop back on...More

Fantastic location to run around and enjoy picnic. The grounds are vast and the formal gardens a good place to enjoy quiet moments or reflection. The collections, however, are a hit and miss. Some of the exhibitions are downright absurd to mediocre. But then again,...More

The museum itself is set in fantastic grounds and on a sunny day it is a lovely stroll. The art on display in the main museum is a bizaar collection of objects and paintings, spread throughout a long corridor off which some smaller rooms branch,...More

I have visited here many times over the years and there is always something worth seeing here. There are lots of different galleries and formal gardens. Very near Kilmainham Goal so possible to do a visit at the same time.

Yes they are in English as that is the main spoken language in Ireland. But in my opinion, you are wasting your time visiting this museum.
