The Merrion Hotel Dublin
The Merrion is one of Dublin’s most exclusive hotels. Location, decor, amenities and service are outstanding and the hotel has the only restaurant in Ireland that has two Michelin stars. The Merrion’s attention to detail is reflected in several international accolades such as a listing in the 500 Greatest Hotels In The World by Travel + Leisure magazine in 2009, 2008 and 2007 as well as the title of No.1 Hotel In Ireland as awarded by Conde Nast Traveller readers in November 2008,
The Merrion has an enviable location at the heart of historic 18th century Dublin. The hotel itself spreads out over four impressive Georgian town houses dating back to 1760. One of the houses is the birthplace of Arthur Wellesley, better known as the first Duke of Wellington. The Merrion is still very close to the centre of political power in Ireland: Directly across the road from The Merrion you will see Government Buildings, the home of the Irish Government. The Merrion is conveniently located for many of Dublin’s top restaurants, famous Trinity College and Dublin’s premier shopping district around Grafton Street.
