The secluded, intimate No 23 cocktail bar at The Merrion Hotel has the feel of a private club, offering the ideal surroundings for guests to enjoy one of our signature cocktails, a flute of champagne, or a glass of wine from our chairman’s vineyard in Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux.

Hung with exceptional works of art from The Merrion’s private collection, No. 23 offers delicious bites, our special whiskey tasting selection, and the very best of warm Irish hospitality.

When the weather permits, The Garden Terrace at The Merrion is open for al fresco lunches and drinks. Colourful blooms and fragrant planting surround the canopied tables.

Executive Chef Ed Cooney has devised a sensational summer salad menu, full of healthy, nutritious options that are high on taste yet low on calories.  There are also plenty of delicious desserts for those inclined to indulge.

The Garden Terrace is the perfect place to escape from the bustle of Dublin and relax with friends.


Our team of experienced Mixologists have mastered their Hospitality and Bartending skills through ongoing training and development programs within the hotel.

They have worked together in order to create some of the acclaimed Merrion Signature Cocktails and their focus is on creating new guests experiences through innovative drinks.
