  • Social Story: What to expect when visiting Hugh Lane Gallery

    Hugh Lane Gallery is a big building on Parnell Square North at the top of O’Connell Street. There are lots of artworks inside.



    There is a ramp and steps leading up to a big blue door.

    This is where we enter and exit the gallery





    There is a reception desk where you can ask for help or information.

    Here we can find gallery maps and information on exciting events and workshops.





    There are accessible toilets at the entrance on the Ground Floor and on the Lower Ground Floor





    If we are in a school group, we can put our coats and bags into these big green storage boxes.

    We can also put our belongings into these yellow and red lockers on the Lower Ground Floor.



    In the Gallery


    When we walk through the gallery, we will see paintings…

    and sculptures!

    There is so much art to look at but remember not to touch.



    Have a seat


    We can sit on these benches and look or sketch for as long as we like.


    Quiet space


    If it gets too busy or warm for us, we can find a more peaceful space.

    If we need some help, we can ask the attendants who work in the gallery.
