If you have a 'things to do before I die' list - a stay in The Merrion Hotel should be right up there on the top of it! Step into Georgian elegance - from the long architectural history of these fine buildings once dedicated to government on Upper Merrion Street, to the service which echoes that gentile era. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here - and everything is possible. From the minute your bag (and your car) is whisked away at check in, to the final goodbyes at the desk - this hotel really knows how to look after it's guests. Dublin's iconic 5-Star Luxury hotel well deserves that accolade.
The hotel has been created from four magnificent Grade 1 Listed 18th century terrace houses, forming the Main House. Two splendid interconnecting Drawing Rooms, with French windows leading to the Garden Terrace and the gardens, have priceless artwork from the hotel's private collection and specially commissioned furniture. With comfortable sofas and armchairs and a warm fire, these rooms are very popular for business meetings and for the Merrion's wonderful Afternoon Tea. Bedrooms are nothing short of perfect in every aspect. The garden bedroom in the Main House, overlooking the garden and terrace, offers comfort and excellence. Decor echoes the period, and modern additions like flat screen television and wide desk complement that. Add in the six-foot wide bed with rich quilt, monogrammed sheets and warm blankets and the delightful large white-tiled bathroom, and we think you'll agree these rooms are sheer bliss.
Dining is a true joy at The Merrion. A less formal affair in a relaxed formal garden setting can be savoured when dining in the beautiful surrounds of The Garden Room at The Merrion. An air of whimsy and airiness that surrounds the setting is reflected in the carefully constructed menu devised by Ed Cooney and his dedicated team. Ed's menu encourages the sharing of delightful flavours and tastes with your group of friends and family as you clink glasses in the Dublin sunshine.
Daytime snacks, drinks and other refreshments are served in The Cellar Bar, located in the 18th Century wine vaults. Bare bricked walls and vaulted ceilings provide the intimate atmosphere. Great value to be had at lunch or dinner on the snack menu if you don't fancy a blow out in the main restaurant. Cocktail lovers will adore a visit to Upstairs No 23. Hang out a while with a cocktail, aperitif or an after dinner drink. We think The Merrion embraces all that is good in accommodation and dining at this level. You don't have to be a superstar to enjoy it. Anyone and everyone is treated in the same manner - with care and attention to detail for even the shortest of stays. Like we said, - put it on your bucket list to soak up some Georgian living in the heart of Dublin city.
