It's absolutely simple...unless you're sheltering from the rain and want to spend an hour in a free museum, you just don't visit this beautiful building unless you have an actual interest in modern art, Francis Bacon or the incredibly talented work of Harry Clarke. For...More

In one way this is a good visit. You can see the total recreated chaos of Francis Bacon´s studio and watch an informative interview with the artist - and this is well worth the visit (especially as the gallery is free to enter). There are...More

Excellent setup, amazing work keeping it authentic - good views into the studio from a door and 2 windows. Brilliant video room where you can see him in his studio and then compare with the installation. Amazing. Bad timing for seeing much of anything else...More

This was a big disappointment. There was not much to and what was there was not inspiring. It was well displayed just not much. It took 15min to see the intire museum.

Only a small part is open. The Francis Bacon studio and exhibit is not to be missed - incredible recreation of his studio, complete with all the chaos. I really like the temporary exhibit “Our Plundered Planet” by Mark Dion. Very unique and thought provoking.

This was recommended to me. When I got there, I found large parts of it closed for refurbishment. They had some minor impressionist paintings but then a whole room with the names of paintings - and no paintings! All of the 19th century Irish art...More

This is a lovely gallery. Just visiting the Francis Bacon studio exhibit would make it worth coming here but the Harry Clarke glass, the occasional Renoir and Degas, the quirky modern wing and the good cafe in the basement make it an easy box to...More

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
