What people are saying:

The Hugh Lane Art Gallery is the earliest modern and contemporary art gallery in Ireland. In the early days, it collected a large number of works by French painters, most of which were impressionists, such as Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, and later Francis Bacon of England. The whole is relocated to Dublin and open to the public free of charge. If you have time, don’t miss it!

Additional Information


This 100-year-old gallery is named after Hugh Lane, the nephew of Yeats's friend Lady Gregory. Lane died suddenly when the boat he was on was torpedoed by the Germans in World War I, and it was unclear whether he had bequeathed his his large collection of impressionist art to London or to Dublin. Dublin recently won the legal battle and much of his art now lives in this museum. It also has an exhibit dedicated to Francis Bacon, and hosts concerts on Sundays.
