The Merrion Hotel in
Ireland, Dublin's most luxurious five star hotel has established itself
as the epitome of relaxed grandeur,
welcoming Dubliners and visitors to the city with stunningly appointed
rooms, crackling turf fires and a host of facilities.
This hotel has been created from four magnificent
Grade I Listed 18th Century terrace houses, forming the Main House of
the hotel, and a specially commissioned contemporary Garden Wing. The
hotel stands on Upper Merrion Street, in the centre of the city,
opposite Government Buildings, the seat of the Irish government.
Many of the classically
elegant rooms in the contemporary Garden Wing overlook the box hedges
and lush flowerbeds of the landscaped period Gardens.
The 122 guest rooms and 20 suites are the epitome of elegance and also
supremely inviting and comfortable. The interior is designed using Irish
fabrics and antiques to reflect the architecture and original interiors
of the 18th Century Townhouses.
The Merrion Hotel offers its guests a choice of two restaurants, The
Cellar Restaurant and the renowned Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, Dublin's
most award winning and acclaimed restaurant. Bars include The Cellar Bar
set in the original wine vaults and the intimate cocktail bar, No. 23.
Each of the six private
dining rooms is decorated in suitable grand style, using rich 18th
Century colours and fabrics. Great care has been taken to retain all the
architectural features for which Georgian Dublin is so famous such as intricate
plasterwork, high ceilings and large windows. Flowers, candlelight,
shining silver and the finest Irish linen complete the picture.
