Some great works

Several works by the "masters". Also the studio of James Joyce, which was very interesting! Free, which is always nice.

A charming, free gallery. I was surprised that there were few other visitors. Their collection runs from traditional to modern works. I enjoyed the display of Life & Time Magazines.

We decided on a whim to stop here after visiting the Garden of Remembrance. It is in a building just north of the Garden and very non-descript from the exterior. It was quite unusual and really very interesting. The various works of art that are part of Hugh Lane's collection are shown in various rooms. Quite an impressive collection that... More

A beautiful museum, which is not too big, but has very good items. Love the Bacon workshop, the modern and classical art. The staff was friendly as well.

It took us about an hour to tour this gallery. It has an amazing Renoir with a very interesting story. I didn't expect it to have so many great paintings. The building itself is gorgeous - and like all things educational, it is free is Dublin to view the exhibit.

Frequent visitor. Permanent exhibition of Francis Bacon's studio is just brilliant. Some great exhibitions include two of my all times favourites: Sir John Lavery: Passion and Politics and the recent "High Treason" about Roger Casement. Great café in basement, good food and friendly service. Overall well worth a visit if you have an interest in art.

Once you have found it, well worth the effort. Fabulous mix of art as well as the studio mock up and good shop too.

Loved the old and the new building meeting and there was some amazing works of art. Some of the modern stuff wasn't to our taste but that's art for you.

On the small side, but there are several pieces worth seeing (a Monet, Manet, Degas. The stained glass ceiling is beautiful.
