The Merrion unveils new spa, health club in Dublin

In Dublin, Ireland, the Merrion has opened the Merrion Spa and Health Club.

Replacing the hotel's smaller original spa, the new spa spreads across the hotel's lower ground floor. It has six treatment rooms, a steam room and sauna, gym and the original 60-foot infinity pool with its hand-painted mural backdrop. Additionally, the club houses a new salon operated by hairdresser Ciaran Nevin, and physiotherapy services from Milltown Physiotherapy and Personal Training.

The space also has the Vitality Club Bar area, ideal for relaxing after a treatment.

Georgian interior designer Alice Roden was involved in the space's design.

The Merrion has 123 guestrooms and 19 suites, including a two-floor Penthouse Suite and private rooftop terrace. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, The Merrion houses the largest collection of private art in Ireland outside of the National Gallery. The hotel has two bars: the Cellar Bar, located in the original 18th-century vaults, and a cocktail bar called No. 23. The Merrion houses The Garden Room restaurant, located in the hotel's private gardens, as well as Patrick Guilbaud, Ireland's only two-star Michelin restaurant.
