Due to reduced capacity during refurbishment, all tours or large groups should be booked in advance (even when a guide is not required).
Large groups that present without a booking may have to wait for access to the galleries in the interest of Health and Safety.

Sunday Afternoon Tours
We are delighted to resume our regular Sunday afternoon tours for the public. The first tour will be on Sunday 7th November at 2.15pm. These tours are led by the various professional Art Historians from our panel who focus on highlights from our exhibitions over the 50 minute tour. They are free of charge with full adherence to Covid guidelines.
Guided tours can be booked by prior appointment with the Gallery’s Education Department. These are an enjoyable way to find out more about the Gallery's modern and contemporary art collection and temporary exhibitions. Guided tours cost €30 per group up to a max of 30 per group. For further information, please go to:
Self-led group visits to the Hugh Lane are free. However groups must remain under the supervision of their group leaders and follow all regulations of the gallery and directions of gallery attendants. Please contact the Education Department in advance of visiting the gallery on a self guided tour to ensure that the visit does not clash with other pre-arranged events stating in your email that you are intending to visit on a self guided visit.
