Highlanes Gallery, an exciting, new, state of the art facility aiming to be one of Ireland's most important visual art spaces presenting a dynamic and diverse programme of exhibitions, drawn from the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection in County Louth.

Highlanes Municipal Art Gallery opened its doors in Drogheda County Louth in 2006. It was the culmination of many years planning to deliver a dedicated visual art space for the Irish north east region, of an international standard in terms of design, management, environmental control and security.

The gallery is sited in the former Drogheda Franciscan Church and part of the Friary, known locally as the High Lane Church. Highlanes Gallery welcomes visits from groups. In order to make your visit as pleasant as possible through all groups are advised to book in advance.

Highlanes Gallery is a participant in the Heritage Council's Museum Standards Programme for Ireland.

Tips from locals

A short walk to your right when leaving the Gallery will take you to St Laurence's Gate, a barbican which was built in the 13th century and said to be one of the highest in Ireland.
