From 31 May 2012 the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s exhibitions programme will be based in two separate locations – the New Galleries in the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham and the ground floor exhibition spaces in the National Concert Hall building in Earlsfort Terrace. IMMA will also present tours and lectures and its children’s, young people’s, adult and education programmes in both locations.
Owing to the installation of a new exhibition, NEW FAITH LOVE SONG by Garrett Phelan, the New Galleries at IMMA will be closed until 22 June 2012. While the New Galleries will be closed until 22 June the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham will remain open. There are four outdoor art trails available in the grounds and the café and bookshop will remain open as normal.
The move to the NCH building is due to the extensive refurbishment works being carried out at the main building at the RHK throughout 2012. The main building at IMMA will be closed from 1 November 2011 until 31 December 2012. For further information please click here
There are no café facilities at IMMA @ NCH at Earlsfort Terrace, but the Terrace Café at the NCH is available. Please check opening hours on www.nch.ie
