    The Merrion Hotel is located at the heart of Dublin and is the capital’s most luxurious home away from home. The Merrion contains 142 rooms spread over four impressively renovated Georgian townhouses. The interiors comprise soft colours and tasteful decor. For most visitors to Ireland, Dublin is a must-see destination. Blending exquisite comfort, practised elegance and personalised service, the Merrion is the perfect base for any Irish holiday.

    The gorgeous Georgian houses that make up the Merrion were originally built in the 1760s by Lord Monck for the wealthy Irish merchants and nobility for their stays in town. Just two doors down from Lord Monck lived the Earl of Mornington, whose house served as the birthplace of Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington. Later the houses became administrative offices, where Irish author Flann O’Brien (At Swim-Two-Birds, The Third Policeman) once worked.

    The Merrion Hotel is home to the 2-star Michelin Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, as well as a number of on-site bars and pubs. There is a luxurious relaxing spa perfect for unwinding, and a lovely garden area, offering a quiet natural paradise even at the heart of Dublin. The Merrion is rich with history, and its location makes it the perfect locale from which to enjoy Dublin’s charms, activities, and vibrancy.

    Local Experiences

    Kayaking on the Liffey

    Bisected by the famous river, the Liffey is the main artery of Dublin. You’ve walked the streets and alleys but now admire the city from the water! A private kayaking tour of the Liffey offers a fascinating new perspective of this grand city that few visitors get to appreciate.

    Sailing in Dublin Bay

    Experience life on board a traditional sailing vessel in Dublin Bay. Join the crew of the Brian Boru where everyone is an active participant and learn how to set sails, heave ropes, climb the rigging, and even man the wheel – or simply enjoy the stunning beauty of Dublin’s iconic bay under the red-cloth sails of the sailboat. The Brian Boru is an active and immersive way to see the magnificent sights of the Bay such as Dalkey Island and Sound, Howth Head, Bailey Lighthouse, Dun Laoghaire, and Dollymount Strand.

    Private visit to Dublin museums

    Dublin is full of interesting and exciting museums. No matter your interests, Dublin has a museum for you. But instead of visiting during normal hours, why not enjoy the museum all to yourself?
