  • The building is lovely and the all exhibition is interesting. You'll find fine art pieces in this gallery. A little gem in Cork. It's definitely worth the visit and it's free, so no excuses. A nice activity with or without kids.
  • A very neat art gallery, can definitely spend a good afternoon here! I came here to draw, and wasn't disappointed with my options of drawing material. Interesting artwork, with contemporary exhibits
  • One of the few things in Ireland that are free is a casual stroll through Cork's Crawford Art Gallery with regularly changing exhibitions.
  • Always a lovely mix of classic pieces and new modern exhibitions. Well worth a stroll around.
  • One of the top spots in Cork. Great space of modern art and a coffee very cozy and nice
