THE MARKER

Ex­tra­or­di­nary, sur­pris­ing and lux­u­ri­ous, this is the per­fect ur­ban re­treat for those who crave the un­con­ven­tional, yet still ex­pect ex­cep­tional stan­dards of ser­vice. Rising up from the rich ur­ban heart­land of the Dublin Dock­lands, the ho­tel slots seam­lessly into one of the most vi­brant cul­tural hubs of the city. The sleek ar­chi­tec­ture com­bines el­e­ments of the Ir­ish land­scape with an ur­ban aes­thetic, cre­at­ing an ex­pe­ri­ence that is dis­tinctly Ir­ish and truly inim­itable. For those seeking a sanc­tu­ary, the well­ness spa boasts a stun­ning in nity pool, while there are also a host of beauty treat­ments on of­fer.

THE MER­RION

The epit­ome of un­der­stated el­e­gance, the Mer­rion com­bines a bustling city cen­tre lo­ca­tion with all the re­lax­ation of a strik­ing coun­try get-away. Many of the ve-star rooms over­look pe­riod land­scape gar­dens, bring­ing lux­ury and na­ture to­gether. Guests can en­joy an ar­ti­san Af­ter­noon Tea ser­vice, or treat them­selves to the in­cred­i­ble food in the twostar Miche­lin restau­rant, Pa­trick Guil­baud.

The No. 23 Cock­tail Bar is al­ways a draw, as is the Tethra Spa, which boasts an 18-me­tre pool, steam room, gym and treat­ment rooms. Though Dublin’s Grafton Street is just around the cor­ner, you may never want to leave your suite.
