Comprising four Georgian townhouses built in the 1760s, this grande dame is home to one of Ireland’s largest private collections. Look for such 19th- and 20th-century masterworks as Jack B. Yeats’s The Hour of Sleep and Martin Mooney’s Imaginary Views of Daingan, commissioned by the hotel in 1997. A National Gallery guide can be enlisted for a private tour.
