Along with The Book of Kells at Trinity College, this is a popular choice for visitors interested in culture and the arts. Having just undergone a nearly $36 million refurbishment, the institution is more vibrant than ever. A comprehensive collection of Irish works shares wall space with offerings from nearly every school, including French Impressionists and Dutch Masters.

The National Portrait collection focuses on influential Irish figures; its interesting contemporary inclusions range from depictions of musician/activist Bono to internationally acclaimed author Maeve Binchy
