The Merrion Hotel

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Striking a balance of historical and cultural importance, this opulent five-star hotel is understated, yet glamorous, discreet, and centrally located.

Boasting a restaurant with two Michelin stars, a beautiful spa, outdoor terrace, manicured garden area, two funky bars – and an excellent kids’ programme – you can’t ask for much more.

Peruse original Yeats and Le Broc paintings that decorate this charming 18th-century Georgian building or even book a private art tour. Splendid luxury, with a romantic edge.

Surrounding area

Opposite Ireland’s government buildings and near one of Dublin’s best-kept streets, the green tranquillity of Merrion Square, is ideal for a stroll or picnic on a sunny day. It’s a quiet enclave, removed from the electric atmosphere of Grafton Street’s shopping district.

If you’re looking for revelry, dip around the corner to find a strip of bars and quality restaurants along Merrion Row.
