‘The Leinster’ for Merrion Square

Located on the edge of Merrion Square, The Leinster hotel has announced a new roof-top restaurant, “Jean-Georges”.

The Leinster will be home to 55 bedrooms and suites, Jean-Georges’ rooftop restaurant, The Collins Club bar and supper club, a luxury boutique fitness experience from the experts behind POWER and The O’Dwyer Suite event space.

The 140-seater rooftop restaurant is curated by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, following in the footsteps of his restaurants in London, New York, Paris and  Kyoto. “Jean-Georges at The Leinster” will be his first foray into Ireland. 

The Leinster has been designed by Dublin-based architects ODAA and Henchion Reuter Architects and interior designers O Donnell O Neill Design to celebrate the heritage of its surrounding area.

Turning bedroom walls into canvases and the halls into galleries, each space at The Leinster has been marked by artists from Ireland and abroad. Pieces on display includes works by Melissa O’Donnell (FKA O’Faherty); Paris-based Irish artist Colette Riet; Irish artist by way of LA, Domino Whisker; Virginia-based Irish artist Stephen Dunne; and much-loved friend of The Leinster, Damien Hirst. 

Botanical in theme, there will be over 300 pieces of original painted art from more than 80 artists dotted around the hotel.
