ABOUT THE MERRION:
The union of four restored Georgian townhouses, joined with a contemporary Garden Wing, The Merrion showcases 123 guestrooms and 19 suites. Guests also enjoy the Tethra Spa with a range of treatments and an in-house pool, The Cellar Restaurant featuring inventive Irish cuisine, Ireland’s only two-star Michelin restaurant called Patrick Guilbaud, and the largest collection of private art in Ireland outside of the National Gallery on display throughout the hotel.
The Gleneagles® Hotel, just one hour’s drive from both Glasgow and Edinburgh, was built by the Old Caledonian Railway Company in 1924 in the heart of a beautiful Scottish glen. Set in an 850-acre estate with its own railway station, it immediately won fame as one of the world’s finest hotels. Throughout the hotel you will find the finest comfort – from the luxury bedrooms to the calming environment of the spacious destination spa by ESPA. Four restaurants ensure there is plenty of choice, including Scotland’s only two Michelin starred restaurant Andrew Fairlie. Gleneagles is renowned for its three championship golf courses – The PGA Centenary Course – venue for the Ryder Cup 2014 – and the stunning King’s and Queen’s Courses. A range of country pursuits are on offer, including falconry, archery, shooting, horse-riding, off-roading and gun dog training.
