In-spire Galerie is an independent art space located in the heart of Dublin.
Our gallery is an ideal place for any art event because of its very convenient location. We are based in the city centre, close to the Luas and Connolly Dart station. The gallery is divided into three rooms and with its high ceilings and victorian windows offers a perfect creative environment.
In-spire Galerie is focused on the co-operation with professional artists from around the world. We are looking for creative people with passion, unique style, interesting technique and good ideas.
Openings of exhibitions at In-spire are usually organised once a month. The selection of works for our solo, group shows and online gallery is made by people fully qualified in the specific areas of art, co-operating with In-spire.
In-spire’s main mission is to unite with artists, to help them to get inspiration and assistance in such a difficult profession and be part of the rejuvenation of Dublin Inner City.
We also educate amateur artists by offering a selection of different courses. Our goal is to give knowledge and experience in specific areas of art and answer all possible questions.
