The Royal Marine Hotel is situated on an elevated site overlooking Dublin Bay in the coastal town of Dun Laoghaire. The hotel is ideally situated between the bustling city of Dublin and County Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland.

The luxury hotel which is now the Royal Marine was first built in 1863. Dating back to 1828 however, a hotel known as Hayes Hotel stood on this magnificent site overlooking Dublin Bay. The hotel was purchased by William Dargan, builder of the first Railway in Ireland between Dublin and Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) and the new Royal Marine was built with part of the old Hayes Hotel incorporated into the new design.

The Royal Marine Hotel is regarded as one of the finest 4 star Hotels in Dublin and has hosted many Heads of State, Kings, Queens and celebrities including old blues eyes Frank Sinatra, Laurel & Hardy and Charlie Chaplin, to name a few. The British Queen Victoria visited Ireland via Dun Laoghaire and enjoyed a 16 course breakfast in the hotel shortly after arriving. The Irish freedom fighter Michael Collins is believed to have hidden out in Room 210 with his partner Kitty Kiernan.

The hotel has been totally restored in 2003. Visitors will attest to the magnificent and historic feel that remains in the hotel whilst modern influences have been married seamlessly into the new design.
