The Oriel Gallery /ˈrəl/ is a contemporary art gallery in Dublin, Ireland, devoted to selling work by Irish artists. It is Ireland's oldest independent gallery.[1][2][3]


Established in Dublin by Oliver Nulty in 1968, the title refers to the medieval Kingdom of Oriel (Airgíalla), which contained Nulty's hometown of Drogheda. Oriel can also refer to a type of window, or the Welsh word for "gallery."[4][5][6]
