Overview

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.

Small but quaint gallery with a famous mace as you enter the gallery. Very friendly staff who went out of their way to share their knowledge of the paintings and the mace in the display case. Thank you Ian Amstrong.

Drogheda's a town most tourist miss because of a limited prior exposure to its delights, access issues as well as time constraints. This serves all the better for those making the effort to maintain an easy pace in engaging its attractions. A primary one symbolizing...More

We wandered in to this tucked away church building and were delighted to find it was free, with exhibitions covering the top floor and huge space on the floor below. For a small, quiet Irish town it was brilliant to see a venue displaying both...More

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