Fodor's Review

The Luan Gallery has created a much-needed municipal space to showcase the work of local artists from throughout the Midlands. Since its opening in 2012, Athlone's cultural status has risen a few notches, and this contemporary visual-arts gallery, idyllically sited on the River Shannon, has been well supported by both townspeople and tourists, helping promote an artistic revival. The gallery, built at a cost of €3.4 million, extends the well-known 1897 Father Mathew Temperance Hall, which over the years has held many roles including cinema, town hall, library, and concert hall. While it organizes exhibitions featuring both emerging and established local artists, the Luan also draws on the national and international permanent collection of the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin.
