Maldives Resorts & Travel guide
12 May, 2023
Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas will officially make its landmark debut in Ireland with the opening of Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel. The property is one of the Irish capital's most contemporary and architecturally impressive buildings and is located in the heart of the Docklands, an innovative part of the city that is home to some of the world’s most famous names in tech.
Previously known as The Marker, a significant renovation has now been completed with a multimillion investment at the Dublin hotel, which is a member of Leading Hotels of the World. All the 187 bedrooms have now been refurbished while the lobby and bar have been refreshed with the addition of new soft furnishings, cabinetry and custom furniture. A destination restaurant, Forbes Street by Gareth Mullins welcomes hotel residents and city dwellers alike. The new restaurant will serve locally sourced products in a contemporary manner with an Irish twist.
Overlooking the Waterfront on Grand Canal Square in Dublin City, the property is close to the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) and the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel has a contemporary design and style with eight event and meeting facilities and offers 187 renovated stylish guestrooms over six floors comprising 124 Premier and Deluxe rooms, 18 Junior Corner Suites and three large executive suites. Named after its Dublin-born Nobel Prize architect, The Roche Suite offers 1,065 square feet of living space while the 990-square-foot Schwartz Suite, named after the square designer, offers Grand Canal Square views. The 1,388-square-foot Presidential Suite is located on the fifth floor and offers unobstructed views of Grand Canal Square as well as two en-suite bedrooms and separate living spaces.
Facilities include a spa with an infinity pool, sauna and eucalyptus-infused steam room, alongside a series of new Signature Anantara Spa treatments inspired by indigenous Irish ingredients. There is also a rooftop terrace with panoramic 360-degree views across the cityscape stretching to the sea at Dublin Bay.
The hotel will offer guests a chance to explore, discover and experience through the property’s bespoke visitor experiences. Culinary activities include a signature "Spice Spoons" journey with the Executive Chef to the nearby seaside fishing village of Howth. Here, guests will be sailed around Dublin Bay on a fishing boat, spotting seals and, sometimes, wild dolphins. Back at the dock, guests enjoy a stop off at Kish Fish, home to one of Ireland’s top smoked salmon smokehouses before returning to the hotel to try a hand at baking Irish soda bread from the chef’s secret recipe.
Other experiences take a deep dive into the sporting, cultural and historical experiences of Ireland. Other bespoke experiences only available to Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel guests include a night of storytelling with a traditional seanachai (Gaelic for "storyteller"), a horse racing experience with a leading horse trainer and a private rooftop "Breakfast By Design" to kickstart the day. In the surrounding area, visitors to the city can enjoy a guided walk through the culture and heritage of the Docklands, which dates back to the 18th century, offering a wide range of options for foodie travelers, including cafés and high-end restaurants, shopping on nearby Grafton Street, boat rides along the River Liffey and in Dublin Bay or sporting activities from a relaxing yoga class to watching a game of Gaelic football at renowned Croke Park
