Our mission is to bring people and art together. We are fortunate to interact with so many people who share our deep love for the Gallery. We are a charity, and every membership is vital to support our work. We will continue to bring you highlights of our exhibitions and deeper engagement with the collection.
Your membership helps the Gallery to acquire new artworks to enrich the national collection, as well as supporting the exhibitions programme. In 2021, the Friends have supported a book to accompany the exhibition Jack B. Yeats: Painting & Memory. Read more about how your membership makes a difference.
Thank you for your support.
Friends go free!
Members of the Friends get unlimited free entry to our landmark autumn exhibition. Friends must book their free tickets in advance. If you book an exhibition ticket, you do not need to book a separate free general admission ticket for the same day.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 measures, we have adapted our membership benefits to ensure that Friends can continue to engage with and enjoy the national collection. Although we cannot hold in-person events in the Gallery, we are bringing the Gallery to you through a rich variety of digital events and content.
By joining the Friends, not only will you receive exclusive benefits, but you will also support the work of the National Gallery of Ireland. Thanks to our growth in membership, the Friends have been able to support a number of Gallery exhibitions and acquisitions.
