We offer this art tour as a private activity for your own, private group, on a date of your own choosing. Please use the green “Book Now” button to select your preferred date and time. Our private art tours are available during opening hours of the National Gallery of Ireland. The current opening hours are:

As a result of the Covid pandemic, the National Gallery has limited its opening hours and is not currently open on Thursday evenings (as it was in the past). Once it re-opens on Thursday evenings, Dublin Decoded will also offer private evening art tours (i.e. Thursday evenings only, 6-8pm). This can often be a particularly beautiful time to visit the galleries, with optimum viewing conditions to enjoy the old master works in calm and peace – at times with almost exclusive access to many of the galleries.
This tour is also sometimes run as a public tour open to all. The best way to hear about upcoming public tours is to sign up to the Dublin Decoded monthly newsletter.
