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

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?

The collection is small for a museum (thus it's termed a gallery), but there are some real gems. Absolutely worth 30 minutes, if you're visiting the GPO. Nice gift shop too.

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
