Crawford Art Gallery is a national cultural institution located in a significant heritage building in the heart of Cork city dedicated to the visual arts, both historic and contemporary. 

The Gallery is home to a collection of national importance telling a compelling story of Cork and Ireland over the last three centuries. 

Open 7 days a week the Gallery is free to enter and a must-see for locals and tourists alike. Crawford Art Gallery’s historic building provides an oasis of calm and tranquillity in the heart of Cork city, a monument to Cork’s ‘Golden Age’ and it recalls the ties between commercial success and the development of Cork city in the early eighteenth and nineteenth century. 

Originally built in 1724 as the city’s custom house, the Gallery is home to the famous Canova Casts, gifted to the city of Cork two centuries ago. Well-known and loved works by 20th century Irish artists such as Seán Keating, Harry Clarke, Norah McGuinness, Mainie Jellett and Jack B. Yeats feature in the gallery’s historic collection, while the modern collection features work by contemporary artists such as Eilis O’Connell, Gerard Byrne, Dorothy Cross, Maud Cotter and Hughie O’Donoghue.

Cork city's most visited cultural attraction, the Gallery boasts a stunning locally run café serving fresh local produce for which Cork is famous.
