This property is located over a working stable that is occasionally used by the Mounted Unit of An Garda Siochana. It is quiet spacious; and the big surprise is the peace and quiet even though it's in the heart of Dublin city.
The mews building at the rear of No.63 Merrion Square is an integral part of one of the most significant survivals of an 18th century Dublin townhouse - comprising main house with garden, mews and stables with its own small garden - within the classic Fitzwilliam/Merrion Square area of Dublin. Situated on Fizwilliam Lane the Mews is a quaint and charming property.
Built in 1792/93 the house retains much of its historic character and fabric. The garden is one of the few surviving gardens in Merrion Square and most certainly the only remaining garden retaining a 19th century design and layout. The Mews also has a private garden, coach yard coach house and stables.
The stables have been conserved, and given a new life as a place to rest and water the horses of the Mounted Unit of An Garda Siochana while they are on duty in the city centre.

Other Things to Note
Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in. Consequently you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting. In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding, and recommend you read the information in the Guest Book in the property
We ask that you leave the property in a clean and tidy condition upon departure. All equipment, utensils etc must be left clean and the property must be left clean and tidy at the end of the hire period.
All breakages and damage must be reported to the House Manager immediately so that they can be rectified. All breakages and damage are the legal responsibility of the Hirer and the cost of repair or replacement must be paid.
We loved our stay at Merrion Mews. A group of 5 friends spent 3 nights. We enjoyed the historical nature of the property but you may want to think twice if you prefer a property where the doors work perfectly, light switches make sense, etc. It works best if your group/family is flexible in terms of morning showers as the one bathroom only has a bathtub while the other bathroom only has a shower. The property is a bit quirky but we thought that this was part of the fun. The area is perfect - right in the thick of things. Setting up the reservation was easy and there was good communication both before and during our stay. I would recommend this property and look forward to returning if we ever get back to Dublin.
We had a fabulous stay at the Merrion Mews! It was such an amazing space and the location couldn't be better. Arron was super responsive and helpful. Highly recommended!
this must be the cosiest and quietest place to stay in central Dublin. We loved it and would stay there again for sure. the whole trip was trouble free and easy
This was a great rental in a central location. We walked everywhere and found this to be a convenient home base. Arron, the house manager, was there early and was most helpful in getting us settled and answering questions promptly during the stay.
The Merrion Mews was an exceptional place for my family to stay over my wedding celebration at the Merrion hotel. We had five people staying there and they couldn't be happier. It was clean, comfortable and in the perfect location. I will definitely recommend it to people.
We were greeted by Aaron upon our arrival. Aaron was more than gracious with his explanations of where and what. We were pleasantly surprised with the added amenities of having internet access as well as a washing machine. The neighborhood was fantastic! The apartment was centrally located to grocery, pub, bakeries and some of the sites we wanted to see. Since we were running the Dublin marathon, the apartment was close to the start and finish lines. Absolutely a plus. WE enjoyed our stay at Merrion Mews and are planning on coming back in 2015 with any luck!
The description was accurate and the contact with the host was good. We weren't aware that there was a washer and WiFi so those were pleasant surprises.

Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
