Dnote sends weekly mailshots covering much of the best of art in Ireland. You’ll find here very many of the finest art venues, both public art spaces and private galleries, in Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Derry, Limerick, Galway and elsewhere. Dnote brings you key artists showing in Ireland today.

Much of Dnote’s service is also available to you on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and you can also get this website to send you reminders. Never miss an important exhibition again – sign up now to receive the mailshots.

Note: during the pandemic, with venues only stutteringly returning to closer to normal, the Isolation Activities listed on this Dnote site may help get you through! They are a selection of virtual and at-home opportunities to keep you informed and sane, and perhaps to occupy some of your charges.
