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 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 works will not affect the temporary exhibitions.
New collection displays are now open on the first floor of the new wing. From mid-February 2019 there will be a phased closure of the ground floor collection galleries. The stained glass room featuring work by Harry Clarke, the Francis Bacon studio complex and the Sean Scully room remain open to visitors.
Updates on any gallery closures will continue to be posted on our website. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you to Hugh Lane Gallery during this exciting phase in the gallery’s development.
