Enjoying St. Patrick’s Day on the Emerald Isle? Raise a metaphorical pint to the old masters at the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin. Their collection holds more than 2,500 paintings and some 10,000 other works. But unlike Europe’s largest art museums, the National Gallery can be thoroughly covered in half a day, leaving plenty of time for a more traditional celebration.
