The National Print Museum wants to be open to all. If you have any access requirements, please get in touch.

On the ground floor, visitors will find the Reception, Museum Shop, permanent exhibition, toilets, and Café. The ground floor is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Entry for wheelchairs is via the Café.

On the mezzanine level, visitors will find the temporary exhibitions. The mezzanine level is regrettably not accessible to wheelchair users.

The Museum welcomes guide and service dogs.

Quiter times tend to be early mornings during the week.


Press is an independent café located in the National Print Museum. All the food is lovingly homemade using fresh ingredients from Irish suppliers. Try one of the daily chalk board specials or a cup of delightful Cloud Pickers coffee, roasted and pressed in Dublin. Escape under the archway into a cosy enclave for breakfast, lunch or an afternoon treat on week days. A restorative rustic brunch menu is served on weekends.
