The Douglas Hyde Gallery, in Trinity College Dublin, focuses on engaging with contemporary art that has been marginalized, and with artists, both from Ireland and abroad, who have not yet become well-known or who have been overlooked.

The Douglas Hyde Gallery, in Trinity College Dublin, was founded in 1978 and became independent of Trinity College in 1984. For some years afterwards it was the only publicly-funded gallery in Ireland that regularly exhibited contemporary art.

Now the exhibition programme focuses on engaging with art that has been marginalized, and with artists, both from Ireland and abroad, who have not yet become well-known or who have been overlooked. They also regularly hold small exhibitions of ethnographic and craft artefacts in Gallery 2.

The Douglas Hyde Gallery publishes small books and catalogues that are known and distributed all over the world, and occasionally hosts musical events.
