The quality of the works exhibited - the presentation.
The Francis Bacon studio was amazing especially the interview.
The information offered beside the works of Art made it a worthwhile venture as also educative.
There is also a great cafe with charming and helpful staff. All in all a very positive experience.

My husband and I loved this small art museum because it featured Impressionist and modern art that we were not able to see at the National Art Museum, which focused more on older religious art.

We saw paintings by Impressionists such as Manet, Monet, Degas, Bonnard, Vuillard, plus some sculptures.

I liked the informative signage about Hugh Lane and his associates.

We did not care as much for the very modern art.

We did not have time to visit the restaurant.

We were drawn to this because of the Francis Bacon studio. So glad we saw this. Enjoyed the rest of the gallery. Nice, clean, welcoming cafe downstairs.

Nice little museum. They have a small collection of French impressionists and two beautiful stained glass panels by Harry Clarke.

This art gallery is a "must see" when visiting Dublin. Very close to the Jury's Hotel and Sein Fein headquarters.

The admission is free and worth staying at least 1 to 2 hours. Nice gift shop.

I've been to this gallery about many times and it is a fabulous museum. It has lots of amazing exhibitions including Francis Bacon's ones.

The café itself is terrible. My got money got robbed in the cafe in February 2010 and I was really upset about it. It's definitely one of the worst cafés I've ever been to. I am never coming back to that cafe again ever!

Really nice gallery and very chilled atmosphere. Enjoyed with our French student. Great variety of art and we were surprised that it housed such famous paintings

Nice for an hour or two to get a take of early 20th and late 19th century art in Ireland. Set in a beautiful building, lots of seating to rest and not nearly as busy as the national gallery. Interesting to see the connection in society at the time and what could have happened to the Hapenny Bridge!

Interesting exhibition of Francis Bacon and his studio and some modern art. As someone who doesn't normally go to art exhibitions, I still enjoyed it.

It's a great place... if you like art and paintings. You can enjoy walking through the rooms and discover different types of paintings and authors. The gallery is free so you should take advantage and see what you can discover while you are there. The visit will be worth it.

Always a pleasure! Went here last week...my first gallery trip since March. It was great to see the Hugh Lane exhibition and especially 'Azaeleas'! The Harry Clarke glass and Bacon studio always delight. I went with a new perspective after participating in a 3 morning online series of fascinating lectures by the Gallery last week. Brilliant!
