The Merrion, Dublin

Set in the heart of the bustling streets of Dublin, this 18th century Georgian townhouse is the perfect place for a romantic city getaway or the end to a Guinness filled weekend. Bang in the middle of the city, it’s a great resting spot and the perfect start and end to any explorers day- step away from the crowds and into your own Paul Henry’s Irish landscape. So take your pick from one of the 123 guest rooms or head up top to one of the 19 suites, Dublin’s calling to be explored.


A stone’s throw away from the famous leafy green Merrion Square and just a short stroll through the city to all the major sites (and pubs)- this is what Dublin is all about. Only a 20 minute drive from Dublin Airport and with the heart of the city at your fingertips, there’s no better way to get out and explore the city than by foot or grab one of the free bikes and get pedaling.

Your Room

Inspired by the renowned Irish artist, Paul Henry, (one of his paintings, Kilary Harbor, hangs at the foot of The Merrion’s main staircase) each room is a tranquil sanctuary of classic luxury. From huge cozy beds with Egyptian cotton sheets to fresh flowers- there’s no question of a good night’s sleep, just what you need after an evening wandering Dublin’s lively back alleys.

Why we like it

Besides its location, gorgeous interiors, rich heritage and understated luxury- The Merrion has also captured our hearts with (of course) it’s amazing spa. From swimming up and down the mosaic lined indoor pool, to sampling one of the signature hot stone holistic treatments, we know you’ll leave feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and relaxed.
