National Gallery of Ireland
The National Gallery of Ireland was opened to the public in 1864. It was founded as a free national collection which is accessible to all. Over 150 years later this is still the focus of the Gallery. Our mission is to care for, interpret, develop and showcase art in a way that makes the National Gallery of Ireland a beautiful place to encounter art. We provide an outstanding experience that inspires an interest in and an appreciation of art for all. We are dedicated to bringing people and their art together.
Festival Hub Host
The National Gallery of Ireland is delighted to bring OUTing the Past to Dublin for the first time. In 2018 we launched LGBTQ+ themed tours of the collection, and we are looking forward to going bigger and bolder with our queer programming in 2019.
The Festival will include a fascinating morning of keynote speakers and talks in our Lecture Theatre, located beside the reopened Merrion Square entrance. Later in the day the Gallery’s newly refurbished wings and rooms will provide the setting for breakout sessions focused on discussion and engagement. The National Gallery is located in the heart of Dublin city centre accessible by several buses, the dart and the LUAS.
The full programme of talks, tours, activities and music will be announced soon – watch this space!
