Today I’m going to take you on a little tour of Dublin’s newest 5-star hotel, The Marker. You may have heard of it – from chef Gareth Mullin and his cronuts, to the jawdropping panoramic views from its rooftop bar, the city has been buzzing about this place for weeks.
|Public areas in The Marker: lobby (top), brasserie (middle)|
Plus, it’s right around the corner from my office, so I’ve more or less moved in: I’ve had lunch in the brasserie, business meetings in the lobby, enjoyed a superior massage in the spa and sank a cocktail or two on the roof.
|Bedrooms at The Marker (from €189): sensational views, all mod-cons (including a properly decent hairdryer!) and divine cosmetics from Malin+Goetz. Take a tour of the Schwartz Suite in my video below.|
Elsewhere, there are inky black corridors and dark marble bathrooms, exotic blooms on every surface, fresh lemonade on warm days and sensational views over Grand Canal Square.
|The spa at The Marker - that bottom shot of the pool area was snapped on my phone and does it no justice at all!|
As for the pool, it actually took my breath away – it really is that gorgeous. Tiled in darkest green marble, with the water softly reflecting on the ceiling, a swim here is like being cocooned in a nymph’s grotto. I’ve been yearning for it since I left and I’d wager you will, too.
