For centuries people have arrived in Ireland by sea, so it makes sense you’ve been hankering to take a cruise that drops its anchor in Dublin. After leaving your ship for the day or ending your journey in this alluring city, fortify yourself like a mollycoddled Irish aristocrat from the 18th century at The Merrion. This distinctly urbane Irish hotel, composed of four historic townhouses in the heart of Georgian Dublin, features polished marble halls, gold-rimmed mirrors and Flemish tapestries. It reflects the past while exuding a contemporary mood, a blend of old and new, much like Dublin’s ever-progressive spirit. Begin your tour of the city with The Merrion’s unforgettable Art Afternoon Tea, a sustaining, indulgent experience that showcases the hotel’s world-class 19th- and 20th-century Irish art collection with pastries inspired by their own artwork. (There’s even a Vegan Afternoon Tea option.)
