Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Dublin / Dublin / Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane
Witness the work of contemporary Irish artists and behold Francis Bacon's studio at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Originally the townhouse of the First Earl of Charlemont, this grand building boasts an impressive array of modern artwork with a particularly strong collection of local works and French pieces. The site is perhaps best known for hosting Francis Bacon's studio. In 1998, six years after the painter's death, the studio and its entire contents were moved from London to the Irish gallery. Today you can observe the clutter, chaos, and genius of the room. Each piece has been painstakingly archived, including paint pots, books, slashed canvases, furniture, photographs, and more.

Interesting place in the city centre but a place that you wouldn't know was there. There were some interesting pieces but when I visited there wasn't much on exhibit. I can imagine that when there is an exhibit it would be wonderful to walk around and enjoy. One of the rooms smelt of old books which is just so nice.
Oh my, the Hugh Lane gallery is a delightful way to spend a few hours in Dublin. Truly stunning art from Harry Clarke's stained glass to Renoir and Monet. All free to view and a terrific coffee shop in the basement. Fabulous.
