Highlanes Gallery Current Exhibitions - Drogheda
The Highlanes Gallery is situated in a former Fransican Church located in historic Drogheda on the Boyne, and was developed to house the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection which dates from the middle of the 18th century. Open Monday - Saturday 10:30am - 5:00pm (Closed Sunday). Admission is Free, but a donation of €2 is welcomed.
The gallery is sited in the former Drogheda Franciscan Church and part of the Friary; known locally as the ‘High Lane Church’. The Franciscans gifted the property to the people of Drogheda when they ended their 760 year association with the town in 2000. The buildings date from the early 19th century, though elements date back to earlier times and include the former Franciscan burial crypts. The main exhibition spaces are open plan and include the old Church level and a new floor at the height of the old balcony and as such, the character of the building is not lost.
Open Monday - Saturday: 9.30am - 5.30pm, Sunday opening 11.30am - 5.30pm.
