This terrace of gracious Georgian buildings, reputed to have been the birthplace of the Duke of Wellington, embraces the character of many changes of use over 200 years. Bedrooms and suites are spacious, some in the original house; others are in a modern wing overlooking the gardens. They all offer great comfort and a wide range of extra facilities. The lounges retain the charm and opulence of days gone by, while the Cellar bar area is a popular meeting point. Dining options include The Cellar Restaurant specialising in prime local ingredients and, for that very special occasion, the award-winning Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is Dublin's finest. "Art Tea" is an afternoon tea experience with a difference, where delightful pastries are inspired by some of the hotels vast art collection.
Situated in the heart of Georgian Dublin, a short walk from Stephen's Green, the hotel has a prime central location.
The rooms are designed using Irish fabrics and antiques, reflecting the architecture and original interiors of the 18th century townhouses. Each room is beautifully designed with all the facilities to be expected of a hotel of such high standards. These are amongst the very best rooms in the whole of Dublin.
The hotel offers a choice of two restaurants, Mornington's and Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, one of Ireland's most prestigious restaurants. In addition there are 2 bars - the excellent Cellar bar and No.23.
The hotel is comprised of 4 Georgian townhouses. There is no grand entrance, a nameplate and doorman in traditional livery and flags of the nations are the only clues that an exclusive hotel is on the site.
The lobby area is elegant and exudes an air of warm sophistication. There are open log fires in the winter in the adjacent drawing rooms.
The Tethra Spa offers a fabulous 18 metre swimming pool, together with a fully equipped gymnasium, steam room and beauty treatment centre. The Merrion is Dublin's most exclusive address. The aim is to provide understated Georgian luxury and it achieves this in some style. (NN 07/2008)
