Lots of paintings, original sculptures, free entrance. That's good, because it would be a shame to pay for a ticket. Large exhibition areas, contemporary art incomprehensible to laymen and a gift shop

Museum with the right size to enjoy all the pieces. The collection has artwork from very famous painters plus a good selection of Irish painters. The highlight of the gallery is the workshop of Francis Bacon, and the multimedia content about his work and his life. Even if you are not a Bacon fan, you learn from his process as a painter.

Маленькая, но интересная коллекция условно современной живописи, условно, потому что конец 19 - начало 20 века были современностью основателя коллекции Хью Лэйна. После его смерти коллекция конечно же пополняется, но не очень активно, судя по экспозиции.Но то, что можно увидеть, безусловно достойно внимания. Из последнего нового - шесть картин Шона Скалли, подаренных им музею в 2006 году и размещенных в отдельном зале. Ну и студия Френсиса Бекона, полностью реконструированная в стенах музея, тоже обязательна к просмотру вместе с несколькими его картинами, некоторые из них были на выставке в Пушкинском музее весной 2019.

So much of the original gallery is inaccessible. I can understand that remedial work has to be done, but upstairs and the side galleries all closed at the same time?Still some wonderful art to be seen though, and the Bacon studio always fills me with wonder.The strangest thing was being ticked off by a guard for pointing at a painting.

Okay Art gallery in Dublin. You can find some nice art work but nothing mind blowing. If you are into Impressionism and portraits you can find some nice stuff, nothing extraordinary or inviting. There’s a soul missing in the gallery and the art work yeah very much mediocre. Nothing makes you appeal to return again! Good thing, it’s very quiet ???? and peaceful

I’ve loved the Hugh Lane since first visiting it decades ago. The Harry Clarke window “The Eve of St.Agnes” never fails to astound me. It’s such a beautiful gallery and a real source of pride for the North of the city. Thank you Sir Hugh for your passion and vision. Dublin will always be grateful to you.

Che piacere questa visita. È composto da quattro ali, l Dargan Wing, la Milltown Wing, la Millennium Wing e l'ala originaria. Pittura irlandese e grandi rappresentanti della storia dell'arte occidentale. Rembrandt, momet, Poussin, Goya, Picasso, Rubens, e la fattura di Cristo del Caravaggio. También Judith y Holofernes de Andrea Mantegna. Al pianoterra, la collezione di pittura irlandese veramente mi colpì, non conoscevo e potrebbe essere considerata tipo una sorta di storia de Irlanda. Una bellissima galleria da visitare.

Went to visit the Andy Warhol art exhibition in the Hugh Lane Gallery, and I must say it was quite an interesting exhibition. Originally the inside of the building used to be white, but now it’s painted black and your able to visit the gallery for free, unless there is a famous artist on display, then you must pay an entry fee.

It's a small gallery but it's worth a visit. They have as a time capsule the study of an artist and audio and visual information about it.

Free galleries are always worth a visit, but if you can, get a tour. My group was guided by Iseult who took us to a choice of highlights in the gallery. I particularly enjoyed her detailed introduction on the architecture of the gallery (Charlemont House) and the history of the gallery itself. The Francis Bacon studio is an amazing exhibit, and the collection of impressionist paintings was impressive. Another highlight was the stained glass room with Harry Clarke’s work. Really enjoyed this visit.
