How to Have a Spectacular Day in Dublin
We asked Marie-Claire Sabogal, head concierge at the Merrion Hotel, to plan us a special, singular day in Dublin:
After a leisurely breakfast in our Garden Room, you would take a gentle stroll through Georgian Dublin with a private guide.
From there you’d be whisked to the historic Croke Park stadium, home to Ireland’s national games of hurling and Gaelic football. A private tour of the stadium would include a breathtaking sky walk across its roof, which offers unparalleled views of the city.
Lunch would follow at the Michelin-starred Chapter One, where chef-patron Ross Lewis and his team serve dishes from a bespoke tasting menu.

Back to the Merrion for afternoon tea, where the pastries are inspired by the hotel’s art collection.
Dinner is the eight-course tasting menu at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, Ireland’s only two-star Michelin dining. Finish the day with a glass of rare Irish whiskey in front of an open fire in the drawing rooms.
