The Merrion is home to an important private collection of 19th- and 20th-century art, to which the hotel’s grand interiors offer the perfect backdrop. The result is a dramatic and successful marriage of classical architecture and noteworthy Irish and European art.
Located just minutes’ walk away from the National Gallery, the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College, and within easy reach of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Merrion is the perfect choice for a Dublin city art break.
And after a day spent visiting galleries, what better way for art-lovers to relax than over The Merrion’s very special Art Afternoon Tea created by our talented pastry chef, Paul Kelly. The pastries are inspired by some of the paintings that hang in the hotel’s collection – art that’s good enough to eat.
