For such a small country, this collection is absolutely amazing. What they don't have in quantity, they make up for with quality. In addition to some famous greats - Vermeer, Caravaggio, Picasso, and Monet - there is an interesting Irish art section. The modern Irish art collections are especially strong - Jack B. Yeats (brother of the poet W.B. Yeats and probably Ireland's most important painter) has a whole section devoted to him.

I particulary loved the fact that admission is free and that the collections are open late on Thursdays.
