The Merrion HotelDublin, Ireland

Offer ID: H78

Number Of Rooms: 122 rooms and 20 suites

From the start, The Restoration of The Merrion demanded the highest standards and careful research which took Alice Roden, Interior Designer of the hotel, to the Victoria & Albert Museum in London to absorb its famous 18th century architecture and to the grand hotels of Paris. Her brief was both simple and clear - “To create a space with sensitivity to the 18th century heritage of the building, with light and airy bedrooms.”

Alice used Georgian colours throughout the guestrooms in a subtle palette ranging from light blue, turquoise, slate blue, sage green and cream. For the fabrics, she designed woven Irish linen check upholstery fabric. The colours in the linen are echoed in the curtains, made of toile de Jouey. The toile appears in a series of colourways, to tone with the walls; red/cream on the first floor and blue/cream on the second and third floors. The bedside lamps are based on 18th century Delftware and were specially commissioned by The Merrion.

Bathrooms throughout the hotel have been designed using striking Italian carrera marble and contemporary chrome fittings. The Bathrooms are remarkably spacious and airy, and all but five offer separate power showers and bath stalls.

Just one month after opening, The Merrion was awarded ‘Best Hotel Room in Dublin’ by the American business magazine FORTUNE. The rooms are the epitome of elegance, but also supremely inviting and comfortable.

All rooms in the Main House are equipped with full air conditioning, multiline telephones, fully stocked mini bars, cable/satellite television, complimentary WiFi, individual safes, Italian marble bathrooms with Asprey amenities, bathrobes and slippers.

Alice Roden chose a blend of fabrics whose colours and textures complement each other. The bedspreads, a linen and cotton mix, were commissioned in a neo-classical acanthus design. The curtains, designed by Alice, were woven in fine wool in a subtle marled mixture of colours, they are lined with a small shirting check.
