This luxurious hotel is located in the heart of Dublin's city center. Created from the restoration of some of the finest 18th-century Georgian townhouses in the capital, this is an elegant and beautiful hotel with fantastic service.
A wonderfully luxurious Georgian gem in the heart of Dublin’s city center.
Home to two outstanding Michelin-starred restaurants, the casual Cellar Bars gastro-pub and the exceptional Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud.
The perfect option for families, The Merrion team will go out of their way to make children feel welcome with menus aimed at younger palates and special in-room treats ready to discover.
Start your day with a swim in the 18 meter indoor pool and end it with a hot stone massage at The Merrion Spa and Health Club.
The Merrion is so many things, an historic building with a stunning art collection, a superb spa and a two Michelin-starred restaurant. It is also an employer of the most imaginative pastry chef imaginable, who models afternoon tea on famous Irish artworks and boasts a hidden garden, tiny cocktail bar and gastro-pub frequented by guests, locals and celebrities alike.
This city center hotel is perfectly located, a short walk to the shops of Grafton Street, moments from the charming gardens of St. Stephen's Green and on the street perpendicular to Trinity College Dublin and its amazing Book of Kells. You have everything that the city offers at your fingertips and yet the space of a vast Georgian mansion.
Each of the 142 rooms and suites is beautifully decorated, inspired by Paul Henry’s Irish landscape paintings with some signature suites such as Lord Monck and Lord Antrim Suites boasting antiques and palatial spaces. The penthouse suite can be fairly described as a small apartment, with its 204sq.m rivalling an average Dublin abode, two bedrooms, three bathrooms and a hot tub on the private roof terrace which overlooks the hotel’s classical 18th-century gardens.
Good food fiends are spoiled for choice and might have no need to venture out to one of Dublin's many amazing eateries. Start at the two Michelin-starred Patrick Guilbaud for utter indulgence. Scale it back with a trip to the Cellar Bar for food made from the best of local ingredients with a modern and creative twist that is still distinctively Irish. After a hard day of sightseeing hurry back to the hotel to relax in the Drawing Rooms and feast on the Art Tea that is almost too beautiful to eat.
The Tethra Spa is the cherry on top for weary feet and those in need of some pampering. Take a dip in the infinity pool before indulging in one of the signature therapies, such as the hot stone holistic treatment.
Children are more than welcome too, making the Merrion a very family friendly option. Expect in-room amenities tailored to the little ones as well as allocated children time at the pool.
The Merrion has it all and is a superb choice for anyone visiting Dublin for a couple or nights or a longer stay.
