Dublin City Council is undertaking major refurbishment works to the ground floor galleries in 2019 to upgrade these spaces to best museum standards. In advance of the refurbishment several galleries will be closed from July 2018 to accommodate the architects' investigative works. We aim to keep the disruption to a minimum and will endeavour to keep as many galleries as possible open. These investigative works will not affect the temporary exhibitions.
The majority of the ground floor galleries are currently open. These include the gallery of French paintings with works by Renoir, Monet and Manet, the stained glass room featuring work by Harry Clarke, the Francis Bacon studio complex and the Sean Scully room. New collection displays will open on the first floor in early 2019.
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you to The Hugh Lane during this exciting phase in the gallery’s development.
