National Gallery of Ireland

National Gallery of Ireland
We welcome children of all ages, abilities and backgrounds and support them to engage with their national collection in an inspiring and exciting way onsite, offsite and online.

Located in the heart of Dublin, the National Gallery of Ireland is the home of Ireland’s collection of Irish and European art, spanning seven centuries, with works by artists including Vermeer, Caravaggio and Velazquez.  Our innovative education team provides a holistic participation, engagement and learning programme inspired by our collection and exhibitions. Events and activities are devised to connect head, hand, and heart, and support learning about, but also through, art.


We cater for all children and families, providing high-quality workshops, activities and resources for target groups, including early years, pre-school, primary and secondary schools, families, community groups and children with additional and specific needs and requirements. Our inclusive programmes reflect our vibrant and diverse society. The voice of the child is at the heart of what we do, and we ensure that we include children and young people in decision-making via consultation, collaboration and co-production.
