Hugh Lane Gallery is in a beautiful 18th Century townhouse. Named after a wealthy art dealer who died on the Lusitania when it was torpedoed by a german u boat. Classical concerts are sometimes held on Sunday's. . The gallery mostly displays French impressionist and early 20th centuary Irish artists, along with sculptures. You will also see paintings by Monet ,Manet and Yeats. You will also find the Francis Bacon Studio, which was moved from London. Although Francis Bacon was born in Dublin, he hated the place. No doubt he would turn in his grave to kown that everything belong to him was transported back to his home town. The Museum is free.
