The collection is small for a museum (thus it's termed a gallery), but there are some real gems. Absolutely worth 30 minutes, if you're visiting the GPO. Nice gift shop too.

The gallery has a great collection, the bulding is very nice, but for me the most interesting was Francis Bacon's studio, you can't miss it.

It's close to the north end of O'Connell Street and on many of the tour bus routes. There are lots of hotels in this district, it's prime tourist territory
