Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA, Irish: Gailearaí Ealaíon Chathair Luimní)[1]) is an art museum in the city of Limerick, Ireland.[2] It is run by Limerick City Council[3] and is located in Pery Square.

The gallery is housed in a Romanesque Revival building which was constructed in 1906 as a Carnegie library and museum. The Limerick City Collection of Art was established in 1936: it has since taken over the Carnegie building and expanded into a purpose-built extension.[4]

The permanent collection includes 18th, 19th, and 20th century Irish artworks.[2]
