Also known as the Dublin City Gallery, this delightful and manageable contemporary gallery is one of the city’s finest art spaces. The selection of work by Irish artists is strong (including pieces by Walter Osborne, Jack B. Yeats, Norah McGuinness, and Harry Clarke); there’s also an excellent collection of Impressionist works by Renoir, Degas, and Manet. The biggest draw here is Francis Bacon’s studio—a chaotic and disheveled space that was painstakingly removed from the artist’s London mews house and reconstructed inside the gallery. It provides an extraordinary glimpse into an obviously troubled but sublimely talented mind.
