The 142-room Merrion Hotel is Dublin’s leading five star property. Its 2-star Michelin Restaurant, Cellar Bar, and No. 23 Cocktail Bar draw gourmets from around the world. The soothing neutral interiors of creams and dove greys feel contemporary yet sensitive to the architecture of the restored 18th-century townhouses the hotel occupies. Lofty king-size beds, the fully equipped Tethra Spa, and a 2-star Michelin restaurant ensure guests are well rested and well fed for exploring the city. Found in the heart of Georgian Dublin, it’s the ideal base from which to visit galleries, museums, pubs, and shopping on Grafton Street.
