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.

Its manageable size makes Dublin an ideal city to explore on foot – or on two wheels on one of The Merrion’s own bicycles!

Cultural attractions are plentiful, with castles, museums and galleries to visit. Trinity College, home to the Book of Kells, and The Guinness Storehouse are two popular destinations on most guests’ itineraries.

Grafton Street on the south side of the city (just a few minute’s walk from The Merrion), and Henry Street on the north side are Dublin’s two principal shopping thoroughfares and home to a wide variety of Irish and international fashion stores. The side streets off these main streets are home to a host of independent boutiques and specialist retailers, many selling Irish arts and crafts.

In the past few years, Dublin has gained a reputation for excellent food. The area around Grafton Street is particularly well served with restaurants and our concierge team will be happy to make recommendations.

The Merrion itself has two restaurants – Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, which holds two Michelin stars, and The Garden Room, presided over by Executive Head Chef, Ed Cooney, serving modern Irish food using the best local and seasonal Irish ingredients.  The Cellar Bar has a casual, pub-style menu featuring The Merrion’s famous fish and chips.

The Merrion Hotel is Dublin’s finest 5 star hotel, with a friendly and experienced Concierge Team always on hand to assist our guests and make your stay in Dublin memorable.
