I specifically visited IMMA for the exhibition currently showing, As Above, So Below, which is a superb collection of occult art from all over the world. It was stunningly brilliant and far surpassed every expectation I'd had (which had been high in the first place!)....More

Visited the Freud exhibition today and really enjoyed it. The pieces have been carefully curated and the cafe and gardens are well worth a visit afterwards.

I love this space and some of the exhibitions here are my most memorable. The current Freud one is wonderful.

Staff were not interested in guests - very into speaking to one another not the public. Free exhibitions extremely limited. Not a friendly place!

Yes they are in English as that is the main spoken language in Ireland. But in my opinion, you are wasting your time visiting this museum.
