It wasn't busy when we visited on a Saturday morning, and some rooms we had all to ourselves, which was lovely. A most impressive collection of paintings in an architecturally beautiful building - a good way to spend your time!

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
