About Us

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is a leading artists’ studio complex and contemporary art gallery in Dublin City Centre.

A centre for creativity in the capital, we provide a place for artists to thrive and ways for you to experience contemporary art. For free. For everybody. Founded in 1983 - by artists, for artists.


Thirty high-quality and affordable studios at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios provide professional artists, at all stages of their careers, from recent graduates to internationally recognised artists with a vital place to work in Dublin City Centre. The work made in the studios goes on to be exhibited in Ireland and throughout the world.


Our exhibitions identify Irish artists of talent at pivotal points in their practice, and introduces international artists to Irish audiences. The gallery programme presents five exhibitions per year, with a strong emphasis on solo exhibitions. We are home to Dublin Art Book Fair - Ireland’s only art book fair.

Learning + Public Engagement

Our free public events connect people to art and artists. Our programme of public events allows people to meet artists, get inside the studios, ask questions, make their own art and learn something new through workshops, talks, screenings and tours.
