Was just passing and thought would pop in. Great exhibition on francis bacon. Great range of art work, modern, old and everything for someone. There is plants of space to walk around. Intersecting information about the artist and pictures.

It has been a long time since I have visited the Hugh Lane Gallery, but, today's visit was not disappointing, I got to see Francis Bacon's Studio and a lovely little collection of Harry Clarke Stained glass. This is a compact yet fascinating gallery and...More

My partner and I walked from Trinity College to Dublin City Gallery taking a more eastern route as we headed north and the walk was great in that I got to see a more nitty gritty part of Dublin on the way there. I went...More

Fantastic exhibition of Francis Bacon and his studio. Well worth the visit plus all the impressionist pieces from Hugh Lane donation

Right across the Garden of Remembrance and next door to the Writers Museum, the Hugh Lane City Gallery has a well-curated collection which stands out with a good balance between world-renown masters such as Rodin, Manet, Bacon and less popular, though equally interesting contemporary artists....More

At the top of Connell St this museum is easy to walk to - but there are a lot of road crossings to cross near to the Theatre (and some road works) which may be a challenge for groups with children- but don't let that...More

A visit to the Hugh Lane gallery is free and absolutely worth your time. If you like WB Yeats you'll have fun finding the portraits his father and brother made, as well as a portrait of the man himself, Hugh Lane. They have a stunning...More

this is an excellent museum that has some of Ireland's best known artists. It is north of the river by about 15minutes by walking. Lots of Francis Bacon works here.

This gallery is always a treat. Well laid out, the interior encapsulates the old and new architecture beautifully. There is always something interesting on display. The Francis Bacon studio is well worth a trip and they have live music on sundays.

Lovely building and easy to get to but I can't say that I'd go again unless there was a special exhibition on. There are some very 'worthy' pieces here but not much that floated my boat. How do you spell neugh?

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
