Gift Membership
Looking for some gift inspiration? Why not share your support of the National Gallery of Ireland with a family member or friend by giving the gift of a Friends subscription. Gift Membership is a great way to introduce a friend to the National Gallery of Ireland and the Friends. Application forms and gift cards are available from the Friends Desk in the Millennium Wing or by contacting the Friends Office on (01) 661 9877. Alternatively, download here.

Become a Volunteer
Since the setting up of the Friends Desk in 2010 in the Millennium Wing, we have found that it has been a valuable asset both to the Gallery and to the general public. The Friends are always looking for Friends who have time to give and commit a half day once a week. It’s a great way to get involved and meet other Friends volunteers. Interested members should contact the Visitor Services Office by phone at (01) 632 5513 or by email
