Ealaín Na­tional Gallery of Ireland, Dublin 2. na­tion­al­ Ad­mis­sion free.

The newly re­fur­bished Na­tional Gallery is be­ing wel­comed with love and ac­claim. Given that it also re­opened with an epic Ver­meer ex­hi­bi­tion, you’d al­most won­der what more they needed to do to win our hearts and minds. Wel­come to Ealaín, a day-long cel­e­bra­tion of art and cul­ture, with spe­cial guests Lisa Lambe, plus Liam Ó Maon­laí and Peter O’Toole from Hot­house Flow­ers. Add in chil­dren’s work­shops, bas­ket-mak­ing with Joe Ho­gan, and bis­cuit-mak­ing with Michelle Dar­mody, and it’s mea­sur­ing up to be a de­li­cious day. Oh, ‘and there are tours of the col­lec­tion too, of course.
