Irish Museum of Modern Art

The Irish Museum of Modern Art, also known as IMMA, is Ireland's leading national institution for modern and contemporary art. Modelled on Les Invalides in Paris, the spacious museum presents over 3,500 works, largely produced after 1940 and in a diverse range of contemporary styles. It also hosts a dynamic programme of exhibitions and events, which regularly include bodies of work from its own collection.

Do & See

Dublin's streets are a busy mix of past and present. This city has always inspired writers, visitors, and political firebrands alike. To walk these streets is to journey through history–from the city's Viking roots by the banks of the river Liffey to its atmospheric medieval churches with their mummified remains and holy relics. The more recent architecture includes the gracious Georgian streets, as well as museums, theatres, and several parks where one can escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
