Book a tour
Whether your group is self-guided or led by a Gallery tour guide, we welcome groups to the Gallery! Find out how to book a tour, or arrange a self-guided visit, below.
Group leaders and students visiting the Gallery should make themselves familiar with the National Gallery of Ireland code of conduct.
You can book a school tour by calling 01 6633510, or emailing [email protected].
Guided tours and workshops must be booked at least three weeks in advance of the preferred date of visit.
Free, in-depth tours of the permanent collection and temporary exhibition are available for third-level students who wish to expand their understanding of related course modules, explore key themes and discourse, and support academic research.
Booking essential. Contact [email protected] / 01 6633510
Subject to availability. All tours must be booked at least three weeks in advance.
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.
