Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas will make its Ireland debut in the coming months with the rebranding of The Marker Hotel in Dublin. The addition of the property in Dublin will represent the expansion of the luxury brand’s footprint into northwest Europe for the first time and also the first urban Anantara hotel in Europe.
A member of Leading Hotels of the World, The Marker Hotel has a futuristic design with 187 contemporary guestrooms over six floors (166 deluxe rooms, 18 executive rooms and three suites), plus event and meeting facilities.
Services includes a spa, named Irish Tatler Dublin Spa of the year several times, a rooftop terrace with 360-degree views of the city and the restaurant La Brasserie, recently named Best Hotel Restaurant in Dublin by the Restaurant Association of Ireland.
The hotel is located in the Docklands in the heart of Silicon Docks, a nod to Silicon Valley on account of the high concentration of multinational high-tech companies located in the area, near the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The Marker is the only five-star hotel in the area, which has recently emerged as one of the most vibrant and modern parts of the city, according to Anantara.
In the surrounding area, visitors to the city can enjoy a wide range of options, including cafés and high-end restaurants, shopping on nearby Grafton Street, boat rides along the river and in Dublin Bay or sporting activities from yoga to watching a game of Gaelic football at Croke Park.
The Dublin hotel will be the third Anantara in Europe, joining Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort in Portugal and the Anantara Villa Padierna Palace in Marbella, Spain.
