IMMA is situated in the historic Royal Hospital Kilmainham, which includes a formal garden and large meadows, so there is plenty of space for outdoor exercise and a class picnic in the fresh air. Group leaders/ teachers may want to optimise their day out, so it is useful to know that IMMA is walking distance from both Kilmainham Gaol and the National Museum of Ireland at Collins Barracks. There is also a paid car park to the rear of the main building.

Watch and listen, as Ola describes the wonderful flowing features complimented by the static movement of this bronze statue.
