Very helpful staff in a gallery of well displayed art. A few different themes help break up the exhibits. It was okay for an hour or so.
The Francis Bacon studio, in its entirety, was transferred from London to Dublin (where the artist was born) and is a most unusual sight in a museum. You have an opportunity to see ,up close, the chaos in which he painted the paintings which now fetch millions of dollars. Also in this museum you can see Harry Clarke's stained glass... More

The Eve of St. Agnes stained glass at the very start is a must-see! I've never seen such a detailed and impressive stained glass like that. The building itself is amazing and the... More
