An image of elitist reviewers and tourists packing quiet halls might come to mind when thinking of a national gallery, but in this instance, the youthful throng outnumbers the typical suspects.
It has a lot to do with the hip activities, like Thursday night openings that go late and cool events like design workshops and documentary screenings that encourage networking.


The national collection of Irish and European artwork is kept at the National Gallery of Ireland.
With two entrances—one on Merrion Square next to Leinster House and the other on Clare Street—it is situated in the city's center.
It was established in 1854, and ten years later it opened its doors.
