At the Royal Hotel, guests get the best of both worlds. It is located in Bray, at the gateway to the lakes, mountains and villages of County Wicklow, yet it's only 40 minutes from Dublin City Centre.
The Royal Hotel and Merrill Leisure Club offers excellent accommodation in the seaside town of Bray, nestled between north County Wicklow and south County Dublin. The hotel is currently being refurbished to a 4* standard which hopes to be completed in early 2018.
McGettigan's Bar opened in December 2015 proudly wearing the tagline 'The Modern Irish Experience' as it reflects modern Irish food, culture, sports and music. The brand is steeped in Irish family history and is using this to bring a real flavour of Ireland to the global market. Guests have use of the Merrill Leisure Club which includes a swimming pool, children's pool, gymnasium, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, or treat yourself to one of many treatments in The Merrill Beauty Rooms. The Royal Hotel and Merrill Leisure Club boasts a purpose built games room to keep the children entertained. After a day of relaxation, sightseeing or shopping, guests can enjoy the ambience of Quin's Bistro which serves Table d'Hote and A la Carte menus, or for more informal dining, a sumptuous bar menu is served in McGettigan's Bar.
Bray DART station is located five minutes walk from the hotel and is a 40 minute ride along the coast to Dublin City Centre. Depending on traffic, it takes approximately 20 minutes to reach Dundrum Shopping Centre, and 35 minutes to reach Dublin International Airport.
From the hotel, guests can explore Glendalough, Powerscourt Gardens and Waterfall, Avoca, Mount Usher Gardens and many more of the beautiful sites that Wicklow has to offer. Other local amenities include Glenroe Farm, Sealife, and plenty of Golf Clubs.
A warm welcome awaits you at The Royal Hotel, Cead Mile Failte!
