“Few hotels anywhere have the breathless sense of aristocracy and effortless poshness of the Merrion. There is a uniquely cosseted charm to snuggling in front of its fireplace, to admiring its second-only-to-Ireland’s-National-Gallery art collection, to sampling its heavenly food and to sleeping in a massive bed in the house where the Duke of Wellington was born.”
Located in the heart of Georgian Dublin, the ultra-luxury Merrion is an elegant, art-filled 143-room hotel hidden behind a series of 18th-century facades. The hotel features an elegant garden, brasserie, bar and the Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, the only Michelin two-star restaurant in Ireland. The Merrion’s collection of art and antiques is second only in Dublin to the city’s National Gallery of Ireland.
