Irish Museum of Modern Art
The Museum Of Modern Art is housed in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, one of the finest 17th-century buildings in Ireland. The museum presents an exciting range of innovative artists through its permanent and temporary collections.
The Royal Hospital was founded in 1684 by James Butler, Duke of Ormonde and Viceroy to Charles II, as a home for retired soldiers, in a style based on Les Invalides in Paris with a formal facade and a large elegant courtyard. The Royal Hospital Kilmainham was restored by the Government in 1984 and reopened as the Irish Museum of Modern Art in May 1991. The building has an excellent bookshop and coffee shop and comprehensive banqueting and conference facilities.
