A beautiful and unique place to visit for those with a love of art or history.The gallery is sited in the former Drogheda Franciscan Church and part of the Friary; known locally as the ‘High Lane Church’. The Franciscans gifted the property to the people of Drogheda when they ended their 760 year association with the town in 2000. The buildings date from the early 19th century, though elements date back to earlier times.

Stumbled across this place when wandering around town last weekend. It's such a great space, the development of a church into a really modern space is very impressive. We found it very relaxing to stroll around and enjoy the art. There's a cafe inside too...More

It's free. They sometimes also run classes, which you may have pay for, but entry to the exhibition space is free.
