The interior and gardens at Stauntons on the Green are graced with an impressive collection of Irish and international art on display at the property, many from our owners private collection, or personally chosen by him.
The signature piece is without doubt ‘The Blessed Julie and Two Children’ stained glass window (1926-1927) by renowned Irish stained glass artist and book illustrator Henry Patrick (Harry) Clarke.
The stunning window depicts the Blessed Julie (1751-1816), a French nun who became the first superior General of the congregation of the sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, France. She was canonised in 1969 and today is Saint Julie.
The unique piece has been brought home to Dublin in 2020 by the hotel's owner whose love for architecture and passion for preserving historic buildings has seen Stauntons on the Green restored to its former glory, overseen by interior designer Nigel Howard who worked very closely with him over a three year period of restoration and refurbishment.
Name plates and signage throughout are bespoke original Belleek, a famous Irishcraft pottery since 1857.
A sculpture of Eiar, Goddess of Springtime takes pride of place in the beautiful gardens and a baroque style fountain is located close to the rear garden gate that leads to Iveagh Gardens.
