6. National Gallery of Ireland

Art lovers must make a stop at Merrion Square to take in all the culture and fine art establishments, especially the National Gallery of Ireland. The decidedly modern architectural structure was founded in 1854 and opened to the public in 1864. The gallery is famous for its world renowned collection of Irish and European art, namely some of the only Dutch masters paintings. The national collections include permanent pieces and famous exhibits from around the world that are displayed randomly while on loan from other galleries and museums. The gallery is open to the public and admission is free.
