The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) has only been around since 1991, but has quickly become one of Ireland’s foremost cultural institutions. Housed in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, it has grown from strength to strength in recent years, holding events like the Bulmers Forbidden Fruit Festival in its vast grounds and attracting nearly 400,000 visitors to the museum each year.

The museum houses a huge range of permanent and temporary exhibitions from a variety of artists from both Ireland and abroad, including the Hennessy Art Fund collection, which supports the acquisition of works by Irish or Irish based artists who are not yet a part of the permanent IMMA Collection. Not only for show, the museum works tirelessly year round to promote the conservation and encouragement of the arts in Ireland though projects and various fundraising events.

The museum is less than 10 minutes away from The Morgan by car or 20 minutes by bus. General admission is free, but some special exhibitions will incur an extra charge. A list of those charges are available on their website. The Irish Museum of Modern Art is a must see for any art lover in Dublin and one of the best places to visit in the city.
