Ealaín National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin 2. nationalgallery.ie 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.
