In a vast set of striking 17th-century buildings that were once the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, you’ll now find the Irish Museum of Modern Art, home to a comprehensive collection of contemporary artwork. Through a rotation of exhibitions and a dynamic collection of pieces, both Irish and international, IMMA remains the primary authority of modern art in Ireland. Free public tours are held daily, and it’s worth checking the schedule for lectures and events featuring the artists on display. Take some time to walk the formal gardens, which form part of the grounds—oversized white benches line the borders, and make for a great pit stop.
