The Merrion Art Tour

All About The Merrion

The Merrion Art Tour

More than ninety works come together to form The Merrion Hotel’s collection of 19th & 20th century art. This June, the hotel reveals the latest chapter of its story as a true art hotel by further crossing the boundary between hotel and gallery with the launch of an in-depth audio guide to twenty paintings in the collection. Developed for the hotel by Acoustiguide, the world’s leading supplier of audio guides (clients include Le Louvre, Paris, The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, New York and Galleria Borghese, Rome) this investment represents a significant advancement of the art experience at The Merrion.

Following extensive research into the artists and their paintings, the guide was scripted over many months by Dr Deborah Lewer, Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of Glasgow. The guide is narrated by Fionnuala Croke, Director of the world-renowned Chester Beatty Library, Dublin while Barry McGovern, one of Ireland’s finest actors, speaks on the history of the building. Assembled over many years – and still evolving today – The Merrion’s collection is considered to be one of the largest and most significant private collections of 19th and 20th century art in Ireland.

The Merrion Art Tour is on a first come, first served basis and is complimentary to Hotel Patrons.
