Since its inception in 1978, the Gallery of Photography has become a well-known venue for photography. The gallery moved to its new location, a purpose built space with fully fitted darkrooms and digital imaging facilities in Dublin City's Meeting House Square in 1995.
The gallery, which is non-profit making, is funded by the Arts Council and Dublin Corporation. However the cost of maintaining standards continues to rise and the gallery relies on sponsorship and support from members to help fund its activities.
Groups are welcome to visit the gallery, and group tours are free of charge. The Gallery of Photography exhibition spaces and darkroom facilities are fully accessible to people in wheelchairs.
