The Gallery is located on the 3rd floor of dlr LexIcon, Haigh Terrace, Moran Park, Dún Laoghaire.

This is the first purpose built public gallery space in the county. It opened in December 2014 and since then we have shown a range of exhibitions and welcomed thousands of visitors. Our programme includes:

  • commissioned exhibitions;
  • touring exhibitions;
  • advertised open calls which allow artists to propose exhibition ideas selected by a specialist panel.
  • community engaged shows

We plan and design each gallery exhibition programme so that it includes both the artworks in the gallery space and a learning programme. Our learning programme gives visitors the chance to explore and engage with the artworks on show through events like talks, workshops, films and tours.

The programming team for the exhibition programmes is made up of dlr Arts Office staff members with specialist arts knowledge. We also work with closely with external curators, artists, key partner organisations and arts education specialists.

Please read the Municipal Gallery Programming Policy 2016-2022 for more information.
