A view of the front of the National gallery of Ireland. The back of a statue is in the left foreground. A lawn leads up to the pillared entrance. There are blue skies with white fluffy clouds.

Experience the National Gallery of Ireland through a mixture of materials, texture, space and sound! In this 40 minute blindfolded visit, a member for the Gallery’s guide panel will guide you around the Gallery’s outdoor and indoor spaces focusing on some of the most architecturally significant parts the Gallery has to offer. By using your other senses, you are invited to place yourself in the solid space and sound around you.

This is an outdoor and indoor experience so please prepare for the possibility of bad weather.

The tours will go ahead even if it is raining.
