Dublin's most luxurious five star hotel, the Merrion is situated opposite the Government Buildings in the centre of Dublin, boasting exclusive location, acclaimed gourmet cuisine and timeless Georgian elegance.
Behind the doors of four lovingly restored 18th Century town houses in the heart of Georgian Dublin, the Merrion echoes with the gracious living enjoyed by Lord Monck, Lord Mornington and the Duke of Wellington, some 200 years ago. Elegant Georgian traditions are found throughout the Merrion, from the pillared entrance, to the slender marble columns, the neo-classical sweeping staircase of the reception area and through to the splendid 18th Century formal garden.
The Merrion's fine period drawing rooms glimmer with French chandeliers, together with Belgian tapestries and priceless Irish paintings from the hotel's private collection, encompassing some of Ireland's most important contemporary works. Throughout the hotel, richly detailed stucco plasterwork and vaulted Rococo ceilings, capture the grandeur of these great Georgian houses.
The classically appointed bedrooms in the contemporary Garden Wing have been individually designed with the greatest sensitivity to the heritage of the buildings. These feature authentic period fabrics and designs, exquisitely detailed furnishings, together with opulent bathrooms of Italian marble. While in the main house original rooms and suites harbour stunning original features such as vaulted Rococo plasterwork ceilings or grand marble fireplaces in an atmosphere of sheer luxury.
In the heart of the Merrion is the Tethra Spa, an oasis of relaxation and indulgence, where you can be pampered with a range of beauty therapies and sensuous massages, or a dip in the shimmering sapphire pool.
The Merrion also features one of Dublin 's most celebrated eateries, Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud. Here the hallmarks are the finest in French gourmet cuisine, from the finest Irish ingredients served with French flare and Irish charm. Mornington's Brasserie and the Cellar Bar, both located in the arched walls of Lord Mornington's wine vaults, are fabulously atmospheric places where you can sample some of the best in Irish cuisine and hospitality.
