Set among four impeccably restored Georgian townhouses in Central Dublin (the western most of which claims to be the birthplace of the Duke of Wellington), this charmer of a hotel offers a one-of-a-kind luxe experience while eschewing stuffiness for Irish charm.

We stayed at The Marker and The Merrion, part of Leading Hotels of the World, and had a fabulous experience at both. The staff goes out of their way to meet your every need, the accommodations are first class.

As the title says class shines through and it is from the minute that the doormen welcome you to the Merrion till you leave.
