Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA; Irish: Gailearaí Ealaíon Chathair Luimní) is an art museum in the city of Limerick, Ireland. It is run by Limerick City Council and is located in Pery Square.

The gallery is housed in a Romanesque Revival building which was constructed in 1906 as a Carnegie library and museum. The Limerick City Collection of Art was established in 1936; it has since taken over the Carnegie building and expanded into a purpose-built extension.
The permanent collection includes 18th, 19th, and 20th century Irish artworks. The gallery also holds regular temporary exhibitions of contemporary works, and has been one of the primary venues for EVA International, the Irish biennial of contemporary art.

  • Wonderful building in a great location at the edge of a park and near the historic Georgian terrace of Perry Square. It has a great cafe attached with outdoor seating. While I was not overly impressed with the temporary exhibition I was impressed with the layout and the facilities in the building and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
  • It was closed when we tried to visit on bank holiday
