  • This is an amazing place to visit because the building itself is very historic, being the former Customs House which was built in 1724. It is also the home of a wide range of art treasures and is well...  more »
  • Lovely building ideally located in the city centre, I've been visiting the Crawford for a long time now and I always enjoy it. The gallery seriously needs updating though, feels like it hasn't changed...  more »
  • Permier art gallery in cork - there is a coffee shop in the gallery and it's right beside the Cork Opera House.  more »

  • The collection is eclectic and not particularly well curated. While I found a few pieces there that I enjoyed personally, there are also plenty of pieces that are mislabeled or simply don't seem to be museum-quality art. The central gallery space one floor above the entrance is quite nice. And I can't complain about the price because admission is free.
  • A must see in Cork city, for tourists and anyone living here. Located in the city centre it's ideal for a short visit over a lunch break or to spend a day inside. It offers a great look at the history of the gallery itself, its members and its city. With new exhibits always showing and a stand out cafe downstairs it's always on my list for a return visit.
  • Loved this place.....Some very fine pieces of art. Especially liked the detailed drawings of James Barry RA and Sean Heeney's work.
  • Great static exhibits, plus changing exhibits you can spend hours in there without realising. Friendly & helpful staff
  • The CRAWFORD ART GALLERY is Actually a Major Museum that dates back to the 1700s. Classic Sculpture, Paintings, Prints and now, Contemporary works such as Paintings by The 1970s Artist Edward MAGUIRE's "Portrait of Anthony Cronin" dated 1977, which is a BUREAU of ARTS and CULTURE favorite.The Museum originally benefitted from Cork's Port Economy early on and now houses some 2500 valuable and interesting works of Art, many that directly represent The Great IRISH Heritage and Culture that we respect at this Publication. Look for more on this Institute in the next Edition as well as Interviews with Irish Artists in our magazine which is FREE and translatable to ANYONE in The WORLD. - Joshua A.
