I love Patrick’s works. Lucky enough to have a few at home (in the UK, nothing like some photographs of Ireland!) and then I’ve bought some for my parents as birthday presents. Great service too, one day I’ll have saved up enough to buy a massive landscape acrylic…

I would very highly recommend Patrick's work. I ordered one of Patrick's sports-themed framed photographs, one for myself and for a friend. The quality and service is amazing. Not only that but dealing with Patrick is such a pleasure, he is so accommodating and so helpful and friendly and went above and beyond for me. I can't speak highly enough for Patrick's work and without doubt I will be back to purchase more.

I received a gift voucher from a friend and I never got to use it because of Covid. The voucher actually expired in 2021 so when I rang Patrick, he said he would extend the voucher so I could use it. My framed photo of the powerscout waterfalls arrived after a few days and I'm delighted with the frame and the photo and the service provided. Thanks Esther

Dealt with Patrick over the last two weeks and was very happy with the service and final product provided. Communication was good and Patrick was great to deal with personally. Bought one of the larger acrylic pieces and I couldn't recommend it enough. I love it. Its like having another window in the room the quality was that good. Easy to hang too with the pieces supplied by Patrick. No issues whatsoever.
Eoin B.
Highly recommend you visit Patrick's Gallery.Fantastic shots excellently finished and framed.You will be glad you went
James F.
I have previously purchased a few different photos of sport or Irish landscape as presents for family and they are loved and always described as the best present!! I too have recently bought pictures and I must say, the customer service is top quality, they keep you up to date on when you'll receive your order. Keep an eye out for their great deals they offer too, but even at that, I guarantee if you purchase any of the photos they will become a talking point in your house at parties etc. Really great shots of so many different parts of the country, abroad and sport. Great works folks and thank you for the amazing photos!!

I chanced upon this shop during a recent visit to Dublin and was struck by the beauty of the photos of display. Once inside the people there - I met two in the course of my various visits - were helpful and informative without being, as many people can be, insistent of subjecting me to the 'hard sell.' I went home and purchased a photo from their website. I was spoilt for choice over which photo to buy. It arrived by post undamaged and within six days of my placing the order. I recommend this shop to anyone visiting Dublin. I hope to revisit the city and the shop in the not to distant future.
Shaun H.
I'm thrilled with my purchase. I was gifted a voucher for the Gallery by a relative and it was really straightforward to use towards my purchase on the website. The main challenge was trying to select a photograph! The staff at the Gallery were really helpful in this regard, suggesting prints that I might be interested in and advising on frame colours etc.The message inscribed on the back of the print was a really nice touch also. The photograph looks fantastic and really makes the room. I'd highly recommend a browse around the Gallery on Dawson St, there really is something for all tastes and price points.

I have purchased a few of Patrick's wonderful photographs of Dublin and the Hook in Wexford as gifts but my favourite photo of all is of Dublin Bay from Clontarf with the Green Shelter and the golden retriever. The photo is extra special for me as the dog is my own dog Honey! My daughter surprised me with a gift of the photo last Christmas and I am so in love with it as Honey is now immortalised in the image, thank you Patrick!
Wendy O.
Very nice and forthcoming gentlemen.

Wow!Found the photo we wanted as a gift online, contacted the gallery by email as our timeframe for delivery was short and they moved heaven and earth to make sure we would have it on time.It arrived this morning, in perfect condition, in good time and looking even more beautiful than I had expected.Can not fault the service, the framing or the pictures!
Katie C.
The beautiful panoramic framed photograph that I chose from the online shop is here, and I am thrilled. It was taken near where I grew up and has a special familiarity to me. I look forward to showing it to my family and picking out the landmarks we know and love. The quality and clarity is super.I was delighted with the quick and helpful service online in answering my queries, and finally when my son collected it in the store it Dublin, he found it packaged perfectly and waiting for him.
Brid M.
Excellent polite and friendly service

5 Stars! What an amazing birthday gift from my husband. A beautiful print of Benbulben Mountain of County Sligo Ireland. The depth and layered landscape brings me warm memories of my parents backyards. Thank you Patrick Donald and team for a wonderful and precious photo that I will always treasure. We look forward to acquiring more of your artwork to fill our home.
Valerie H.
I've made a number purchases of framed photos from the gallery over the years in particular for gifts. Friends and family have all been delighted.But I've also got a range of own photos framed for the house which look fantastic in different sizes for a simple gallery wall.

I love this gallery shop, it has such a collection of beautiful images, capturing so many of Irelands most stunning locations and character. The service here is second to none. Patrick went out of his way to ensure the gift print I purchased reached it's destination on time. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!
Jean M.
We wandered into this photograph gallery and shop, because of the stunning photos in the window. The photographer was there, so it was fun to chat with him about some of his images and Ireland in general. His images are exactly the kind of thing we wanted to take home to remember our trip and definitely something you won't run across in other parts of Ireland. Highly recommended!
Tracy M.
Wonderful pictures representing perfectly well the Irish landscapes and spirit! The welcome was warm. I recommend those pictures 😊Magnifiques photos de paysages. Les photos représentent parfaitement l'esprit irlandais! Parfait pour un joli souvenir. L'accueil en magasin est chaleureux.

The crew at Patrick Donald were very obliging in providing a really nice rugby photo and packaging it up as a gift. The recipient was thrilled with the photo and I was thrilled with the service.

I cannot rate Patrick McDonald's Gallery highly enough! His range is excellent and the customer service is incredible. For me, the ideal gift is the gift of a memory and I never fail to find the best of gifts in Patrick McDonald's collection. For anyone with an affinity to almost anywhere in Ireland there is something that will provoke the best of memories. A must stop for tourists and residents alike.

Without fail I stop by Patrick's gallery whenever I'm in Dublin.His beautiful photography has made a great addition to my home, as well as cherished gifts for friends and family.In my experience staff have always been pleasant and helpful, even accommodating my online purchase to take advantage of a promotional offer (sign up to their mailing list) for in-store collection weeks later!

I bought an image of Fanad head recently. It is a beautiful black and white image that reminds me of the stark nature of the landscape. Great memories
Rachel G.
On my last trip to Dublin I wondered into the Patrick Donald Gallery while I was exploring the city. The pictures in the gallery told me the story of Ireland without using any words. The pictures in the gallery are beautiful and captivating. I purchased a U2 photo in addition to three Irish landscape photos and I couldn't be happier. Every time I look at his artwork I'm transported back to the beautiful landscape of Ireland.
Christina O.
Great pictures and framing service!
