Eye-catching geometric design and a sleek urban luxury aesthetic earmark The Marker Hotel, located in the bustling financial district of Dublin. As one of the city’s newest luxury offerings, the 187-room gem—literally reflecting the surrounding Irish landscapes—offers an upscale, but down-to-earth experience for groups.
The Marker recently introduced “The Marker Equilibrium, it’s all about ME,” health and wellness concept, which explores mindful indulgence throughout hotel spaces. At the Marker Bar, groups can enjoy guilt-free desserts such as avocado, coconut and lime cake and goji berry cake. (FYI: Executive Chef Gareth Mullins recently brought the cronut, a croissant-donut hybrid, craze all the way from Manhattan to Ireland, but that’s another matter entirely.)
Equilibrium can also be found in the Spa & Wellness Space, where healthy indulgences include a spirulina wrap, with live spirulina algae, Polynesian Lomi Lomi massage and glacial lava shell treatment, one of the newest developments in glacial therapy where heated lava shells and cold glacial shells are massaged into the body, breaking down fatty tissues while increasing circulation. The cocoon-like ambiance of the wellness space—made warm and inviting by a flood of overhead natural lighting and deep green color pops against dark grey walls and walnut floors—is accented by a nearly 250-foot infinity pool.
Furnished by contemporary Irish designers, an eclectic but sophisticated vibe permeates the hotel, adding its own sense of balance to the mix. One of the best places to soak up this energy is on the Rooftop Bar & Terrace, which overlooks the heart of the city. Urban garden parties have regularly taken place here, while groups people watch from above the Bord Gais Energy Theatre—brimming with the best plays, musicals and operas year-round. Numerous state-of-the-art venues, like the Aviva Stadium, Convention Centre Dublin and Royal Dublin Society, most known for the Dublin Horse Show, are easily accessible to groups. On-site, the hotel offers over 7,500 sf of diverse meeting space.
