Eating and drinking


The Gallery Café is closed and we anticipate having it re-open in the near future. In the meantime, there are many great coffee options in the vicinity and we apologise for any inconvenience.

Compass Group Ireland has been appointed to operate the National Gallery of Ireland’s Gallery Café. The café provides beverages, snacks and meals for the Gallery’s visitors. 

Compass will take over from Peaches and Domini Kemp (ITSA) who have run the café for over three years. We would like to extend warm thanks to Peaches and Domini Kemp for their excellent service to the Gallery and its visitors during their tenure.  

Compass Group Ireland provides contract catering and support services to clients in a wide range of sectors and marketplaces. Compass (originally as Eurest) has been operating in Ireland since the 1980’s. A merger with Sutcliffe and the acquisition of Management Catering Services (MSC) followed. In 2008, Compass Group, operating from Dublin, was formed. Compass group is a FTSE 100 company.
