Extraordinary, surprising and luxurious, the Marker Hotel is the perfect urban retreat for those who crave the unconventional, yet still expect the exceptional standards of service that are the signature of a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. Rising up from the rich urban heartland of the Dublin Docklands, the hotel slots seamlessly into one of the most vibrant cultural hubs of Dublin City. The hotel’s architecture draws on the elemental nature of the Irish landscape and combines it with a sleek urban aesthetic, creating an experience that is distinctly Irish and truly inimitable. This elemental style is carried right through from the stunning ground floor cocktail bar and brasserie, through the unique geometric layouts of the 187 bedrooms, to the stunning rooftop garden, reaching across the cityscape to the stunning natural beauty of the mountains and the sea.
Guestrooms at The Marker have stunning views over Grand Canal Square, the Docklands, to the Dublin and Wicklow mountains and right out to sea. With an emphasis on original, cutting edge design our rooms deliver on style and comfort. Each room has been designed to provide the ultimate sanctuary for guests, but of course they’re functional too. A palette of crisp white linens and soft, natural textures are contrasted with punches of vibrant color. Furnishings have been carefully chosen for design aesthetics, yet also to ensure that you have every convenience at your fingertips.

With a sharp focus on Irish, locally sourced produce, the Brasserie is a refreshing addition to the Grand Canal restaurant scene. Located right beside the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, it’s the perfect pre-theatre destination. The rich elemental theme of the Marker comes to life in this space. The bold, abstract ceiling is complimented by modern, minimal furniture, including legendary design icon – the Panton chair. A spectacular grey marble table dominates the space, while private booths and banquette seating create just the right amount of privacy for intimate dining. In Ireland, the traditional way of cooking is to create simple dishes, built around one great ingredient. The Brasserie is no different. From succulent rare breed pork or prime dry-aged beef we try to stay true to our Irish roots.
The Marker Bar:
The Marker Bar exudes its own unique style and ambience. Modern, fresh and totally laid back, it draws an eclectic mix of people through its doors. It’s got some really unique features too, that strike just the right balance between work and play. The gorgeous feature fire provides the perfect setting for a long, lazy afternoon, flicking through the papers, in perfectly cosy surroundings. A long workbench with directional lighting and docking points is the perfect for informal meetings and catching up with a bit of work. Or you can grab a helping of fresh air in the alfresco outdoor terrace area. As for the food? Well, you’ll find all the classics, kept simple, using locally sourced ingredients. Choose from seasonal soups, gourmet sandwiches and charcuterie plates or try some delicious Irish Farmhouse cheeses drizzled with locally sourced honey. While the food speaks for itself, we can also help you choose the perfect craft beer or wine to make things really special.
On the Map: Dublin, Ireland’s Capital City is located on the east coast of the country, and is well served by infrastructure linking it to all parts of the Emerald Isle.
Dublin is a lively cosmopolitan city brimming with culture. You could spend your time strolling the streets soaking up the atmosphere, relaxing in its cafes and bars or you could check out its myriad historical, literary and cultural delights. The 8th century illuminated manuscript, the Book of Kells, must be viewed. It is on display at the impressive Trinity College, Ireland’s first university (founded 1592) in the heart of Dublin. For the rest of your time, it is up to you how much you want to pack in. Phoenix Park, twice the size of New York City’s Central Park, Georgian Dublin around Stephen’s Green, the National Botanical Gardens, National Museum, Kilmainham Jail and the Hugh Lane Municipal Art Gallery are all highly recommended stops on your tour. Then there’s the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery. A visit to Dublin’s Temple Bar to experience the lively Dublin pub culture is a must, though many of Dublin’s best bars can be found outside this area in the streets and laneways around Grafton Street, the shopper’s street of choice. Purchasing a ‘hop-on, hop-off’ Dublin Bus Tour ticket is a great way to get around and see all the major sites at a very reasonable cost.
