This is an art gallery full of promise and awe. Hugh Lane, who died on the Lusitania made sure that this would be Dublin's Premier Art Gallery, he was so right.

Most famous for the Bacon experience (his workshop is incredible) but actually we were most surprised by the excellent small collection of really good impressionist paintings - well worth a visit for art lovers - children are encouraged to do their own pictures of the paintings on the wall (although possibly not of the ladies who have not had time to put their clothes on)

Loads of paintings spread out over approximately 8 galleries. At the end there is the studio of Francis Bacon - what an incredible mess!

Great rooms, paintings, lovely cafe and the Bacon experience is amazing, a real highlight. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the paintings and sometimes they have musical events too.
Well worth a visit.

Finally got here to see the studio and wasn't disappointed. However the viewing windows could be bigger. Glad to see the Krug boxes still in situ!
