Located in the centre city, the Merrion offers a prime location, close to museums, governmental institutions and also typical Irish pubs and shops.

The hotel is only 25 minutes from Dublin International Airport. If you are arriving by car, the Merrion has parking and valet parking.
The Merrion comprises of 4 houses in the Georgian architectural style that, once restored, gave birth to the luxurious Merrion Hotel. Combining classic architecture and modernity, the Merrion has a full history: it was indeed on this site that the first Duke of Wellington was born.
The classic, refined and warm atmosphere testifies to the quality of welcome that the hotel offers its guests. Art lovers will be delighted to see some of Ireland’s finest paintings and antiquities throughout the hotel.
