At Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel, exceptional meets unconventional. This contemporary and sleek landmark, inspired by the elements, overlooks the waterfront of Grand Canal Square. It is located in the regenerated Docklands, which represents the cosmopolitan future of the city, and is an ideal choice for both business and leisure guests. The area is home to technology and finance giants, as well as chic restaurants and world-class theatres. As one of Dublin’s most visually striking landmarks, The Marker Hotel combines urban style with luxury, making it the perfect base for exploring the capital city. Situated within Dublin’s Docklands, The Marker Hotel is part of a distinct urban concept. It is nestled between the River Liffey and the Grand Canal, and a short stroll from Sandymount Beach and the Irish Sea. Many of Dublin’s most unique experiences are within walking distance from the hotel.
The hotel’s architecture seamlessly blends the elemental nature of the Irish landscape with a sleek urban aesthetic, creating an experience that is distinctly Irish and unmatched. The design draws inspiration from the natural geometric shapes found across the island, ranging from the rugged Burren Landscape to the unique hexagonal stones of the Giant’s Causeway. This elemental style is evident throughout the hotel, from the ground floor cocktail bar and Brasserie to the geometric layouts of the 187 luxurious bedrooms, culminating in the stunning Rooftop Bar & Terrace that offers breathtaking views of the cityscape, mountains, and sea. The hotel rooms are spacious, flooded with natural light, and designed with the highest standards of comfort and style, setting a new benchmark in city living.
Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel is situated at the heart of the bustling Docklands, overlooking Grand Canal Square, a vibrant and walkable area known for its burgeoning cultural scene and cafes. The famous Georgian streets of the historic centre, Temple Bar, Grafton Street, and Trinity College are located to the west and can be easily reached on foot or by public transport, including the hotel’s complimentary car service. The Marker is the latest addition to the rich history of Dublin’s Docklands, which has evolved over millennia from a Viking settlement and port to a blend of old and new architecture. The hotel’s name pays homage to the Grand Canal, one of the country’s most significant inland trade routes. The canal’s 82-mile length was marked with cast-iron markers, and the final one was located in Grand Canal Square. The hotel’s name embodies Ireland’s adventurous and trade-oriented nature, reflecting the area’s rich history while placing it in a contemporary context. Accessible via Forbes Street, the hotel is only a 20-minute drive from the airport.
