Beginning Dec. 1, 2018, the Merrion Row Hotel and Public House will open in Manhattan. This 28-room hotel includes a pub and restaurant, with nods to Ireland in its décor, food and service.

The hotel is now accepting reservations for guest stays and private events. 

Close to Bryant Park, the Theater District and Rockefeller Center, Merrion Row Hotel and Public House embraces the Irish tradition of cead mile failte, or “100,000 welcomes” in Irish. The property draws inspiration from Dublin, where the energetic strip of good-natured pubs referred to as Merrion Row meets Georgian row houses encircling Merrion Square. With Meyer Davis Studio’s trademark natural aesthetic, modern energy and tradition is brought to life Stateside in contemporary style.

The hotel's guestrooms offer a contemporary feel, with real white oak floors stretched out before Irish-inspired plaid drapes. Tiger Leather headboards are matched with blues and greens in guestroom furniture and accessories, alongside original photography of the Irish countryside and portraits of some of the land’s most notable authors. In each en suite bathroom, classic New York style is present, with black and white subway tiling against Calcutta white marble vanities and glass paneled showers.

Merrion Row Hotel’s Public House, anchoring the building’s first floor, is a twist on traditional Irish and New American pub favorites utilizing local ingredients to elevate the menu. In the front, a large, custom communal table and soft seating allows the space to transition from day to night. In the back, a more up-tempo pub environment can be expected. 

Spaces throughout the property present the opportunity for unique boutique meetings, private dinners and celebrations. A conservatory with glass retractable roof is in place for bright, all-weather gatherings. Upstairs, flexible meeting space residential in feel is available for special events.
