Some artists who have their work exhibited here include Sir John Lavery, Jack B Yeats and Nathaniel Hone. There is also a special room dedicated exclusively to Irish women artists from 1886 - 1978.

Cork City Gaol

A former prison that is worth visiting to realize what an awful life the prisoners led a century ago. The audio tour takes you around restored cells with models of prisoners and guards. The visit here can be very moving as it shows the harshness of the 19th century penal system. Many inmates who were incarcerated here were convicted of stealing due to poverty.

During the second world war the house and stables were occupied by the Second Cyclist Squadron of the Irish Army and afterwards was open to the public in 1946.
