Understated Elegance in the Heart of City Centre

Old World Charm Amidst Busy Dublin Streets

The Merrion Hotel is not only a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, but it is also considered the capital city’s most luxurious five-star hotel. Boasting 142 guest rooms and suites, their welcoming accommodations are classic and stylish. The hotel is housed within four restored Georgian townhouses, giving guests an authentic, high-class Irish experience.

Located across from Government Buildings, The Merrion Hotel is a few minutes’ walk from the Dublin Convention Centre, Grafton Street shopping, restaurants, pubs, museums, and galleries. Visit the National Museum of Ireland – Archaeology, Dublin Castle, Chester Beatty Library, Old Jameson Distillery, and the National Gallery of Ireland, just to name a few must-sees.

On-Site Considerations Bring the Dublin Experience to You

One doesn’t have to venture far to experience world-class cuisine and activities. The Merrion Hotel is home to an 18m pool, fitness facility, spa, and exceptional wine & dine option. Enjoy a casual gastropub menu at The Cellar Bar or contemporary Irish cuisine at The Cellar Restaurant. For a real treat, experience fine dining at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, Ireland’s only restaurant to hold 2 Michelin stars.

Bar No. 23 is the hotel’s intimate cocktail bar, where guests can enjoy an atmosphere reminiscent of a private club. Relax on the Garden Terrace in the spring and summer, or enjoy Afternoon Tea in the Drawing Rooms year-round. No matter the occasion, in-room dining is available 24 hours a day, making your stay even more special.

Airy Guest Rooms Inspired by Art

Rooms at the Merrion are inspired by the subtle, light palette of renowned artist Paul Henry’s Irish landscapes, one of which can be viewed at the foot of the main staircase. These inviting rooms are well-appointed with elegant touches, 400 thread count Egyptian linens, and cozy seating arrangements. Basic amenities include free Wi-Fi, video conferencing, personalized voice mail, on-demand movies, a writing desk with stationery, and minibar. Suites are larger with dining room seating, decorative fireplaces, and music systems.

The Bottom Line

There’s no doubt, The Merrion is a splurge in the heart of Dublin. Compared to nearby chains like Four Seasons Dublin and Westin Dublin, The Merrion is a crown jewel reserved for those seeking luxury. Its impeccable attention to detail, warm hospitality, and fabulous location make it worth every penny, and there’s no doubt a stay at The Merrion will be one to remember.

Expert Reviews
The Merrion is Dublin's most exclusive luxury hotel, and has a convenient location across from the Government buildings in four 18th-century townhouses.
In a city of spotty service, the staff here does a good impression of having had decades of practice, and the look of the place is weathering beautifully.
Condé Nast Traveler
This Upper Merrion Street hotel opposite the Government Buildings comprises four eighteenth-century Georgian town houses built for wealthy Irish merchants and nobility.
