To start off this Museum does not open on a Monday but top tip is it is free on a Tuesday yay. The grounds are stunning with the main gardens very picturesque. The meadows part was hosting a concert at the time so that part...More

I don't know, maybe I don't understand modern art but I definitely was not a fan of this museum. It gave me the heebie jeebies of anything. My friend and I stumbled across this museum by accident after taking a taxi to see Gilmainham Gaol....More

The park setting and the deep history of the buildings of this modern museum is the perfect juxtaposition for the thrilling exhibitions currently mounted at IMMA. I entered the museum grounds through the gate entrance across from Kilmainham Gaol, which provides a leisurely approach along...More

Yes, sorry to say that the museum is closed on Mondays, but stay for the gardens, they're very nice, worth a slow walk around to admire the whole layout. The small gardeners cottage has a brief history of the whole hospital development. The plants are...More

IMMA is one of my favourite museums in the world, I think the curation and programming is always very interesting. The ground are also incredible. The shop leaves a lot to be desired but I do like the edition section at the entrance.

It's good to visit any museum and celebrate art. Long, but nice walk from old town didn't meet our expectations. Not well organized setup in the museum gives you hard time for spatial orientation and free admission part is more artists social and political messages...More

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
