The Merrion Hotel

One of the finest hotels in Dublin, The Merrion is a timeless hotel that attracts Ireland's smartest crowd.  Made up of four Georgian townhouses which are over 200 years old, the hotel is located just minutes from leafy St Stephen's Square in the very heart of Georgian Dublin. Just minutes from the National Gallery, the Natural History Museum, the shopping street of Grafton Street and Dublin's many restaurants and pubs, The Merrion is the perfect base for exploring the city. Due to the fact that the hotel has grown organically over time, there is a slight mismatch in style throughout the property but the overall effect is very elegant. Bedrooms and suites are a blend of contemporary comforts and classic Georgian furniture with soft blue, green or pink hues throughout. All have been individually designed and rooms on the lower floors enjoy magnificent high ceilings and Georgian windows. Although wonderfully nostalgic, The Merrion feels fresh and in the 21st century; modern amenities and sleek Italian Carerra marble bathrooms as well as a luxurious spa and health club all transport you to the present. The Merrion is also home to one of Ireland's largest art collections, displayed throughout, and an audio tour will soon be available to guests.  Dining options are superb; next door to the hotel is Patrick Guilbauld, Ireland's only two Michelin-starred restaurant and the main building is home to the atmospheric Cellar Bar and Restaurant and welcoming drawing rooms, where Art Afternoon Tea is served daily. Log fires roar all year round, chandeliers hang from the tall ceilings and the rooms look out over the interior courtyard garden.

I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
