Free tours for schools in Ireland

Tours for primary and secondary schools from within Ireland are free of charge and private tours or non-school tours are subject to a fee.


Cancellations/No Shows

While we provide standard school tours free of charge, and subsidise the cost of enhanced tours, in the event of a cancellation within 24 hours of the tour time we require schools to cover the tour-guide fee. This is to ensure that more schools will have the opportunity to avail of free tours at the Gallery.

Please provide at least 24 hours' notice when cancelling a tour. Otherwise you will be charged a cancellation fee of €25 for a standard guided tour, €75 for a sketching tour, or €50 for an interactive/sensory tour.

Self-guided groups can book in online here
