Hyde Bridge Gallery is in heart of Sligo Town in the Yeats Memorial Building at Douglas Hyde Bridge. This gallery houses contemporary and traditional paintings, drawings and sculpture. It also aims to encourage artistic endeavour in the community.

The main objective of the Hyde Bridge Gallery in Sligo Town is to sponsor and encourage all artistic endeavour within the community. It also provides space for the exhibition of contemporary art, and provides a forum for all artistic endeavour.

Located by Douglas Hyde Bridge on the Garavogue River, a new initiative by the gallery is the National First Solo Exhibition Opportunity Award which gives artists who have never mounted a solo exhibition an opportunity to do so. Another popular exhibition is the Annual North Western Artists Open Submission event held each autumn.

The Hyde Bridge Gallery is housed in the Yeats Memorial Building. Also worth visiting here are the Yeats Photographic Exhibition and the library which provides reading and learning space for students who wish to consult its unique collection of books, and to listen to and view the DVD collection of lectures given at Yeats Summer Schools over more than 40 years.

School tours are welcome at Yeats Art Gallery.
