A five red star AA hotel located in the city’s central Cathedral Quarter, The Merchant boasts a luxury spa, rooftop gym and jazz bar. The concierge team, just inside the entrance of the grade A listed Victorian building, will warmly welcome you upon arrival.

The hotel provides a calm respite from the buzzing city outside, particularly in the serene spa, which features a thermal and hydrotherapy area, a hydro pool, ice fountain, steam room, sauna and a rooftop hot tub with sprawling city views.

Once you work up an appetite, head to the Great Room restaurant for fine dining and a glimpse of Ireland’s largest chandelier. You can tuck in to the 9-course tasting menu or enjoy a Champagne Afternoon Tea here.

Meanwhile, Berts Jazz Bar of The Merchant Hotel, encompasses the Art Deco era with live jazz, fabulous cocktails and a mouth-watering French bistro menu. However, if you prefer a more informal setting, experience the hotel’s cosy bar, The Cloth Ear.

When you are ready to retire, you can retreat to one of two room types – a sleek and glamorous Art Deco room or a Victorian bedroom with antique furniture, velvet throws and silk curtains.
