Review: The Morgan Hotel

There’s nothing better than treating yourself to a relaxing break away especially after a Christmas of sleepless nights and overindulgence!

I stayed in The Morgan Hotel on December 23rd because I hadn’t bought one single present meaning I had to do a last-minute dash around the city on Christmas Eve and as I was on a heavy dose of antibiotics, I wanted to completely chill out and relax without stressing about traffic and parking!

Located on Fleet Street in the heart of Temple Bar it’s an ideal location if you want to be bang in the centre of the city! Set up in 2001, The Morgan Hotel is one of Dublin’s leading design-focused, boutique hotels.

An exciting mix of all that is special about a designer hotel – cool clean lines, white interior spaces, magnificent glass chandeliers, Philippe Starke furniture, open spaces, natural elements throughout with leather and oak features, specially commissioned art & furniture pieces and maximum use of natural light are just some of the elements that make this one of Dublin’s finest boutique hotels.

The Morgan’s unique selling point is the design and creativity of the hotel matched with a sophisticated music styling and vibe which sets it apart from any other boutique hotel in Dublin.

I had the pleasure of staying in a King Deluxe room during my stay and in terms of design, it was one of the most unusual yet phenomenal rooms I’ve ever stayed in.

Beautiful bespoke design is infused throughout these enhanced, deluxe boutique hotel guest rooms.

It’s half bedroom/ half bathroom and the main focal point of the room is the large old-fashioned free standing bath tub. The mirror in the room is Art Deco from Indonesia and the artwork in the room is titled passion by artist Robert Shaw.

I’ve eaten and drank at The Morgan Bar many a time prior to this particular visit because I’m a Dublin native and it’s one of the best cocktail bars in the city, but I did have a bit to eat while I was there too!

The menus at The Morgan Bar include breakfast, lunch, an all-day menu, tapas, a €25 menu and of course their famous cocktail menu.

The all-day menu is served until 9.30pm and social  hours are between 3 and 6pm Monday to Friday where you’ll get some great deals on cocktails, bottles, beer and wine.

I ate from the all-day menu and for starters I had Prawn Pil Pil – Dublin Bay Prawns baked in a homemade fresh spicy tomato sauce served with crusty baker’s baguette.

For mains I went with the Pasta of the Day – a spinach and ricotta tortellini.fullsizerender-8

Both dishes were divine! I also treated myself to a Morgan Bubbles, THE most famous cocktail on the menu!
