Limerick, Ireland


Please click here for the 39th EVA International Phase 3 programme visitor guide.

Please note that the health and safety of our visitors, artists, staff and volunteers is our primary concern. Together with our venue partners we have implemented social distancing measures across all venues and will be monitoring attendances within capacity guidelines. For this reason it may be necessary to queue outside of venues during busy periods. While opening hours and the safety measures listed here are correct at time of going to print, we do advise visitors to check or our social media pages in case this information has been since updated due to advice from the relevant health authorities. All indoor venues are subject to capacity restrictions and public health protocols.

Group Visits
We are unable to facilitate large visitor groups as some our venues have very limited capacity. For visitors that are planning to attend in groups of 6 or more, please contact us with 72 hrs advance notice of your visit ( or +353 83 144 1051).  We will do our best to facilitate you.

Face Masks
We require that both our staff and the public wear face masks in all public spaces.  Please make sure you wear yours from before entering any EVA related gallery space and until after leaving. You can find the HSE’s latest updates on face masks and coverings here.

Hand sanitiser must be used on entry. Hand sanitiser stations will be clearly marked. All attendees must follow hygiene protocols including respiratory and hand washing hygiene. The latest information regarding these protocols will be signposted throughout indoor venues.
