Greyfriars Municipal Art Gallery is located in the historical quarter of Waterford City. It houses fascinating collection of works, including pieces from renowned Irish artists such as Jack B Yeats, Charles Lamb and Louis Le Brocquy.

Greyfriars Municipal Art Gallery is a historic building, built in the early 19th century. This late Victorian church built in gothic revival style was home to the Waterford Methodists until 1973. It was eventually bought by Waterford City Council in 1989 and was adapted by them for use as the Municipal Art Gallery.

This former Methodist church is situated in the historic quarter of Waterford city – the Viking Triangle – close to Reginald’s Tower, the Medieval Museum, and Christ Church Cathedral.

The building provides a permanent home for the Municipal Art Collection and houses a fascinating collection of works, including pieces from renowned Irish artists such as Jack B Yeats, Charles Lamb and Louis Le Brocquy.
