The Merrion
Upper Merrion Street
Dublin 2
Dublin is the capital city of Ireland, situated on the east coast of the country where the River Liffey flows into the Irish Sea at Dublin Bay. The city has a rich medieval history dating back to the time of the Vikings, and is known for its elegant Georgian architecture. The Merrion is located in the heart of Georgian Dublin, surrounded by some of the finest buildings, squares and streets of that golden age.

Hotel Overview

Merrion, located in the heart of Dublin city centre, is the capital's most luxurious five star hotel. This 5 star luxury hotel is to be found in the heart of Georgian Dublin, opposite Government Buildings and a few minutes walk from galleries, museums, the I.F.S.C, Dublin Convention Centre, pubs, restaurants and the shops of Grafton Street.


The 142-bedroom and suite hotel is as welcoming as it is stylish. An impeccable restoration of four Georgian townhouses, The Merrion is a marriage of exquisite comfort, relaxed elegance and advanced guest facilities, including free Wi-Fi, an 18m pool, spa and gym.

The hotel is sensitive to the elegance and heritage of the original buildings, while providing every modern amenity expected by our guests. Our 123 guest rooms and 19 suites are light and airy, decorated in colours and fabrics selected from a subtle palette inspired by Paul Henry's Irish landscape paintings, one of which hangs at the foot of The Merrion's main staircase. Most important of all, our rooms are comfortable and inviting, each furnished with a King Koil Executive Club 6 bed, and luxurious 400 thread count Egyptian cotton bed-linen to ensure a good night's sleep.


The Merrion offers a choice of eating options, from the casual gastro-pub menu served in The Cellar Bar, to the modern Irish cuisine of The Cellar Restaurant and the fine-dining experience at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, the only restaurant in Ireland to hold 2 Michelin stars.

In addition to The Cellar Bar, set in the original 18th Century wine vaults of the Main House and a popular after-work meeting place, The Merrion is also home to an intimate cocktail bar, No. 23, its clubby ambiance conducive to relaxed conversation.

During the spring and summer months, guests can enjoy the tranquility of the Garden Terrace, while the Drawing Rooms, with their open log fires, are perfect for Afternoon Tea at any time of year.


The Tethra Spa is a tranquil and relaxing place of retreat located at the heart of The Merrion, with award-winning therapists available seven days a week to provide treatments to residents, Tethra Spa members and non-resident guests. The luxurious spa area is equipped with private treatment rooms where guests can enjoy a wide range of massages and beauty treatments delivered by our team of experienced therapists, using ESPA and Darphin products.

The Tethra Spa's calming interiors make it an ideal place to unwind, and to restore and invigorate both body and mind.
