Went on a day with most exhibition closed due to rearranging, but would definitely recommend the Charles Harper exhibition.

Well worth a short turn off of St. Stephen's Green- you get up close and personal with some superb artwork, in a wonderful space. If you're overrun by the crowds in the National Gallery, do make a short trip to the RHA. A bonus is...More

We saw two excellent and interesting exhibitions both from young Irish artists, Una Seally and Aideen Barry. The gallery was recommended to us by a local friend at a time when museums in the area were extremely busy. It was a pleasant find.
