About the Museum

Some of the world's greatest paintings reside in the National Gallery of Ireland, from masterpieces by Rubens to Rembrandt's Portrait of a Woman with Gloves. After a multimillion-pound renovation of its historic galleries, the museum reopened in summer 2017 with a vast number of magnificent works restored and 150 new acquisitions added to the collection.
