The hop on hop off bus stops right outside this Gallery in Parnell Square Dublin. It's well worth a visit, especially on Sundays when they have FREE classical recitals at 12 noon - usually pianists or classical guitarists. They also have a lovely cafe - a MUST when you get tired as you do in an art gallery and a... More

This was just around the corner from where we stayed. The Bacon exhibit is really nice and there are some beautiful pieces of art, cosy little place and a stunning building.

Off the beaten track slightly but worth a visit. Loved the famous and less well known art. The Francis Bacon studio was the highlight and captivated our 9 year old

This gallery had a really great collection of modern art from Ireland and he world. As an Australian I loved seeing the piece by Sidney Nolan.

The Francis Bacon studio alone is worth the visit. The focus on Irish art - and this year (2016) on the centenary of the Easter Rising - is excellent. We learned a lot, and appreciated the art at the same time.

There are some great classic works of art here, as well as some newer collections and displays. It is unpretentious and quite an easy gallery to get to and to get around in once you arrive. It's a very easy gallery to enjoy with teens. And it's free

I have visited this place before, in 2009 with my sister, who was a tourist at the time. I came with my children this time, it was still amazing the second time around. It was informative.
