The Overview

Dublin's most stylish hotel, The Merrion, stands on Upper Merrion Street, in the centre of Georgian Dublin, opposite Government Buildings, the home of the Irish parliament. It was created from four magnificent Grade I Listed terrace houses - known as the Main House - and a specially commissioned contemporary Garden Wing arranged around two private gardens. One of the houses, No. 24, was the home of Lord Mornington. His son, the 1st Duke of Wellington, is said to have been born there.

The original drawing rooms in the Main House, with their rococo plasterwork and cornices, have been restored to their former glory. The interior of the hotel remains true to its Georgian origins. Alice Roden, a well known local designer, designed the guest rooms and public areas, using period colours, Irish fabrics and antiques.

The Merrion also boasts one of the most important and exciting private collections of contemporary art in Ireland, hung in the public areas for everyone to enjoy.

The hotel offers the choice of two restaurants and two bars. The renowned “Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud”, with its 2 Michelin Stars, moved from its former site in Dublin to spectacular premises in The Merrion's Main House. For less formal dining, The Cellar Restaurant offers a simple uncomplicated menu using the best quality Irish ingredients. Next to the restaurant the original 18th century wine cellars with their vaulted ceilings provide an atmospheric setting for The Cellar Bar, already a great favourite with Dubliners. Guests can also meet in “No. 23,” the smaller cocktail bar on the ground floor.

The Merrion's health and fitness centre, The Tethra Spa, with its 18-metre infinity swimming pool, offers exercise and relaxation in surroundings unrivalled in Dublin. A gymnasium, steamroom and a luxurious private treatment room make this a place to relax and let stress drain away.

One of the most distinctive and unusual features of The Merrion is its gardens. The two landscaped period gardens were designed by Jim Reynolds, the noted Irish landscape artist. The smaller of the two, known as “Lady Mornington's Garden” is purely decorative, linking the Main House to the new Garden Wing. The new wing completes the enclosure of the garden, so that many of the guestrooms enjoy views over the large central garden. In summer, the large garden becomes an extension of the drawing rooms in the Main House, with waiter service so that guests can eat and drink outside on the terrace.

In the 123 rooms and 19 suites clients benefit from the latest technology: multi-lined facility with 3 telephones in each guestroom; plasma screen televisions, complimentary Wireless and Broadband Internet connections and video conferencing. Completing The Merrion's impressive list of facilities is a private car park with valet parking and a conference and banqueting centre with its own separate entrance.
