The Merrion stands directly opposite Government Buildings in the heart of Dublin city center. On the doorstep is Upper Merrion Street, where Government Buildings, The National Gallery and The National Museum of Ireland are located. A short walk leads to the adjacent "golden mile" of lively pubs, shops and restaurants dotted around St. Stephen's Green. Grafton Street is a leisurely stroll away for all the latest designer shops. The Merrion's location is also surrounded by commerce and industry - business people coming to and from work as the city center bustles with action. Weekends in contrast are peaceful. Horse-drawn carriages clip-clop past the Georgian railings of nearby Merrion Square, which are hung with the work of local exhibiting artists.
