National Gallery of Ireland

European Old Masters and famed Irish painters

As fine art museums go, Ireland's National Gallery is not the tops in Europe, but it does have a few important works by major old masters that make it a must for art lovers.

The highlights include Caravaggio's tumultuous 1602 Arrest of Christ, Paolo Uccello's oddball 1440 Virgin and Child, and Vermeer's richly lit 1665 Woman Writing a Letter.

The collections are fleshed out with works by Titian, van Dyck, Goya, Vel·zquez, Gainsborough, El Greco, and Degas.
