OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel's location on Upper Merrion Street is right in the heart of Georgian Dublin, just steps away from Merrion Square and the National Gallery. It's a short walk to St Stephen's Green, the shopping hub of Grafton Street and the buzz of the cafés, bars and restaurants of the surrounding streets.

By plane: there are direct flights to Dublin Airport from Manchester (1 hour), Birmingham (1 hour 5 minutes) and London (1 hour 15 minutes). The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport.
