Trawling through the leaflets in Dublin's tourist information office, we found one likely candidate in the form of Howth. Hey, it had a cutely illustrated map, the promise of some walks around the headland and it has the tagline "Howth is Magic!" There could be no other place to go!
The IMMA is housed in the buildings of the former Royal Hospital Kilmainham, and is a based in rooms around a large courtyard. It all looks rather large and impressive, and my initial thought was how were we going to do this place justice in the time we had available. Okay, it didn't look as hefty as Tate Britain or the National Gallery in London, but it looked rather large.
