Number 31

Top choice guest house in Merrion Square & Georgian Dublin
Image by

The city's most distinctive property is the former home of modernist architect Sam Stephenson, who successfully fused 1960s style with 18th-century grace. Its 21 bedrooms are split between the retro coach house, with its modern rooms, and the more elegant Georgian house, where rooms are individually furnished with tasteful French antiques and big, comfortable beds.

Gourmet breakfasts with kippers, homemade breads and granola are served in the conservatory.
