Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA)
Updated: Jan 2
Located in 48 hectares of land in the center of Dublin 8 and surrounded by the former Garden and a vast meadowland, the house of IMMA is the historical location of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. IMMA is an accessible campus that provides a place where contemporary life and contemporary art come together.
Visit a full variety of exhibits including works by leading Irish and foreign artists with IMMA's own art collection, including the Freud Project, one of the main painters of the 20th century, Lucian Freud. Find out what's on the IMMA platform right now. The IMMA services are available to anyone and include gallery-based visits and workshops; studio-based artist residency studio programs; talks, conferences and artist-led activities.
On your tour, discover the IMMA store, take a walk through the formal gardens of the 17th century and relax in the IMMA Café.
The IMMA is available to the general public six days a week. The museum is locked on Mondays, besides Bank Holidays. The entry to the museum and the grounds is free of charge, with a nominal fee for special exhibits.
(These paying exhibits are open for all on Tuesdays, but advance booking is advised.)
Informal led tours are a perfect general introduction to existing exhibits. These 30-minute tours take place on Wednesdays at 1.15 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays at 2.30 p.m. You can only come to the meeting places at the reception desk without a reservation. Otherwise, the Guest Interaction Committee would be willing to address queries regarding the artwork.
Facilities include family workshops, family game kits and changing rooms. IMMA is accessible by wheelchairs with a wide parking area.
