Stay in the heart of the Creative Quarter, The Dean is Dublin's Art Hotel

We love art at The Dean.

Being an art hotel is at the forefront of everything we do. Ever since we opened our doors in 2014, we have strived to create and maintain an inspiring environment for all of our guests to enjoy. Being based so close to Dublin’s Creative Quarter constantly inspires creativity for our guests and featured artists. Our walls are lined with cutting edge original works from over 40 Irish artists. Curated by James Earley, our collection features works from the likes of Me&Him&You, Eoin Holland, Mark Francis, Richard Gorman, Patrick Scott and Samuel Walsh, to name just a few.

“The Dean’s art collection represents a snap shot in creative time within Ireland. All artistic disciplines are celebrated: fine arts (painting, print, photography, sculpture), as well applied arts (graphic design, industrial design, illustration).

Up and coming talent shares wall space with established artists. With over 40 artists and 250+ artworks, it is a collection that truly represents the past, present and future in Dublin’s visual arts community.”

The Blue Room, our event space, has been used to display and launch some amazing artists’ exhibitions. We launched the Solus & DMC collaboration, two of Ireland’s best known street artists who transitioned to exhibition style art in 2016. In 2017, we launched The Dean ArtKicks, our art initiative based on the popularity of exhibitions and our continuing commitment to art and creativity. Since its inception we have welcomed the incredible Rasher (AKA R.M. Kavanagh) and his dynamic exhibition entitled ‘Perceptual Space’, and Tag Beckett with his superb and super-exciting exhibition ‘Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown to name a few.

We are the ongoing hospitality partner of IMMA, a collaboration that fosters an artistic environment for artists and art-lovers alike.
