The Merrion in Dublin, Ireland

Gracefully created from four restored Georgian townhouses, The Merrion is an historic retreat in the heart of Dublin. Only a tiny brass nameplate marks the hotel's unassuming brick exterior, but inside, marble floors and columns and ornate rococo plasterwork ceilings show off the grand style of 18th century Ireland. Each element of the hotel inspires admiration--from the bedrooms adorned with Irish fabrics and antiques to Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud to the soothing ambience of Tethra Spa. Take time to enjoy the notable works of 19th and 20th century art, considered to be one of the most important private collections in Ireland.

The stately hotel sits opposite Government Buildings on Upper Merrion Street. Step outside and you will find The National Gallery and The Natural History Museum at your doorstep. A short scenic walk takes you to the adjacent "Golden Mile," home to the lively pubs, shops and restaurants that surround St. Stephen's Green. If you're a history buff, you'll want to spend time exploring Dublin Castle with its underground walls and moat, or admiring the "Book of Kells" at Trinity College. Or if socializing is more your style, the groovy, high-tech Guinness Storehouse is a must, as is a visit to the hotel's own eatery, The Cellar Restaurant.

We were only here for a night but the room and staff were excellent. A very special hotel with extraordinary public rooms and beautiful art adorning the walls. The fact that Ireland's best restaurant is accessible through a side door was also wonderful. Having a cocktail in the lounge with a fire and comfortable chairs was a wonderful way to spend some time before dinner.

I stay at the Merrion from time to time on business and always find it very comfortable with great service. The location is particularly fantastic with all the city centre amenties on the doorstep. Highly recommended!

A wonderful hotel, with lots of character and history, very relaxing, lots of old paintings and the rooms are immaculate. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. It is very close to the city centre of Dublin located in a lovely area of the City.

It was our first stay in Dublin and we enjoyed our stay at the Merrion Hotel. The room was very clean. Very comfortable beds and a generous size bathroom was a pleasant surprise. The food at the Garden Restaurant and the drinks at the Cellar Bar was stellar. Yes, this property is expensive, but you won’t be disappointed.
