5 hotels for sleeping in luxury in Dublin

1) The Merrion Hotel

This is the cream of the crop when it comes to style and extravagance. The swimming pool looks as if it is from an emperor’s palace, there’s a collection of fine art, and the rooms are fit for kings and queens. And there is the two-Michelinstarred Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud.

2) The Shelbourne Hotel

The home away from home for the rich and famous. Enter past the top hat doormen, enjoy a fantastic White Russian at the bar and then think about what you’d like to do next: relax in your room or take on the fitness centre and indoor pool, or perhaps investigate the 24-hour dining options. Here, the world is your oyster.

4) Anantara The Marker Hotel

Strategically located beside the Bord Gais Energy Theatre is this five-star hotel. From floor to ceiling, inside and out, it is nothing short of impressive. Everything oozes style: the walls, the bar and, of course, the opulent rooms with Malin+Goetz products. The roof bar is the epitome of laidback cool.
