Luan Gallery

Since 2012, Athlone’s Luan Gallery has showcased both national, and international visual art projects ensuring a varied and engaging arts programme is delivered to the people of Athlone.

The gallery, built at a cost of €3.4 million, extends the well-known 1897 Fr Matthew Temperance Hall, which over the years has held many roles including cinema, town hall, library, and concert hall. Luan Gallery has won both the RIAI Best Cultural Building 2013 and the coveted Civic Choice award in 2014.

To date, the gallery has hosted various shows including local, emerging artists such as Paul Quast and Séan Guinan, national upcoming talents as seen in the RDS Student Art Awards Travelling Exhibition, as well as established artists such as Catherina Hearne, Sinéad Ní Mhaonaigh and James Hanley RHA.

Luan Gallery promotes a strong educational programme throughout the year offering guided tours, workshops, lectures and classes.


Luan Gallery is currently seeking exhibition proposals for the 2018 Gallery Calendar. The closing date for receipt of submissions is Monday May 30th 2016 at 5pm.
