I've been to Dublin several times before but this was the first time that I stumbled upon this little gem. Where to start? The delightful building - art nouveau with a very tasteful modern extension - the reconstruction of Francis Bacon's studio, including the steep stairs leading up to the studio revealed through a hole in the floor - the delightful collection of Corot paintings - the substantial collection of impressionist art - the paintings by less well-known Irish painters? Any of these would be reason enough to go to the Lane, but the reason I went twice in one weekend was the outstanding collection of stained glass in a tiny room leading directly off the entrance hall. There are only half a dozen items, but in pride of place the peerless, sublime Harry Clarke interpretation of the Eve of St. Agnes by Keats. This piece is one of the most captivating works of art I've ever seen and I could barely tear myself away from it. Everyone visiting Dublin should see it - it's got to be right up there with the Book of Kells. All this - and it's free! What's not to like?
