Luxury Holidays At The Merrion

Conveniently situated in the centre of Dublin and created from four Georgian townhouses, The Merrion is a perfect base for your luxury Ireland holiday. Its stunning restored interiors feature impressive touches, such as a neo-classical staircase that sweeps into the reception area and elegant drawing rooms furnished with fine antiques and an impressive collection of art, with floor-to-ceiling Georgian windows opening onto the lovely terrace and gardens. In a bid to preserve the building's integrity and heritage, the architects and interior designers have created distinctly individual guest rooms and suites - no two are alike. While staying at The Merrion, guests can discover renowned restaurants and bars. The Garden Room restaurant offers Irish cuisine expertly executed, while Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is perfect for formal dining and boasts two Michelin stars. For a drink at the end of the day, visitors can stop into The Cellar Bar, set in the original 18th-century wine vaults, or the intimate cocktail bar, No 23. During the spring and summer months, guests can relax out on the Garden Terrace, while the Drawing Rooms are perfect for afternoon tea any time of year. The tranquil experience continues at The Merrion Spa and Health Club, an ideal place to unwind, restore and invigorate the body and mind.

City Highlights

Dublin is a city with bucketloads of character and friendly, engaging locals; Dublin people certainly make entertaining hosts, while the city itself is vibrant, fun and sociable. It is also flushed with history and Dublin Castle, built in 1204, is rich in Irish heritage, whereas 21st century architecture, such as Ian Ritchie's Monument of Light, offers a more contemporary vibe. Temple Bar is commonly known as the Cultural Quarter, brimming with street performers, music venues and cosy Irish pubs full to bursting. Here, you will also find good restaurants, many bars and pubs and traditional Irish folk music. The Guinness Storehouse remains a popular tourist attraction and details the company's history, recipes and advertising campaigns. There is also a bar with 360-degree views of Dublin and it is here you will receive your complimentary pint of Guinness, complete with a shamrock in its foam.
