About The Marker Bar

As you enter The Marker Hotel, you walk straight into the heart of it, our Marker Bar. Our ground floor Marker Bar buzzes from early in the morning until long past sundown. The décor is urban minimalism providing a modern, fresh and totally laid back atmosphere. Guests and neighbours alike enjoy visiting The Marker Bar as somewhere to stop off for a pre-party cocktail, or as the perfect spot for an evening hideaway, it is a bar for a meeting, socialising, working or chilling out.

The Bar also extends to an alfresco terrace on Grand Canal Square so you can really soak up the energy of Dublin’s hippest cultural hub. ur Marker Bar menu is a gastropub style all-day menu with all the classics like hearty chowder, baked tiger prawns, steak sandwiches, all, of course, kept simple using locally sourced ingredients. The menu also includes an extensive Equilibrium offering, our clean eating initiative which is designed to provide healthy choices without compromising on flavour and includes our famous Nutri box.

To whom it may concern: I visited The Marker Bar on Tuesday evening. I was really looking forward to this evening with a friend that I had not seen in a long time due to the pandemic. When we approached reception, the host (Vytautas) was very cold and unwelcoming. For someone at front of house in a 5 star hotel I found this to be unacceptable. I was further disappointed with the service at our meal. Only seconds after we had finished our main courses the plates were swiped from us and Vytautus asked if we were ready for our dessert when we had not even looked at the menu. The rushed experience made us feel distinctly unwelcome. I expected a much better service from The Marker as it was my first time visiting it and I had heard good things. I have a night stay booked in your hotel this Sunday for myself and my mother which I booked weeks ago. I hope my experience is not going to be similar to the one that I had on Tuesday. Otherwise, I will not be returning as it is unsatisfactory for a 5 star hotel.

We booked dinner at 7.30 in the bar and the rooftop bar at 9, we were still waiting on our main courses at 9 so we only got to the rooftop bar by 10.25 where we were told the last call for drinks was 10.30. I asked for steak medium- well, however I couldn’t eat all of it as it was undercooked. I understand due to Covid restrictions there was a strict time frame however, given that the meal took nearly 3 hours, we didn’t appreciate being told the Rooftop bar was closing nearly a half hour after we got there and we were told to go back downstairs. I understand that the there may have been staff shortages and strict time frames in place for meals and drinks due to Covid restrictions, but clearer advice and communication should be given if the meal is going to take so long to be prepared so that we don’t miss out on other reservations in the 5 star hotel.

The "The Taste" voucher provides three excellent courses and a great bottle of wine at tremendous value. However we learned a lesson to ask for the price list for everything else - a snipe of sparking wine was €17, and a glass of wine (not at all as nice as the bottle that came with the dinner offer) was €12. That said, our server Grainne was excellent as always and the meal was very enjoyable overall.

As a party of two, staying in the hotel we were looking forward to our meal but unfortunately left disappointed. On arrival at the marker bar we were unsure of where to go. The only host at a desk was the host for the rooftop terrace who pointed us towards the correct desk where we waited, as waiters walked past us, until we were finally greeted by our host. We were then shown to our table outside which was not under a heater or canopy and had a very small table. Too small for a dinner if you ask me. After being turned down an indoor table on my first request, my partner and I agreed that room service would be more practical than the table we found ourselves at. Fortunately, on the second time of asking we were given in indoor table. We then ordered drinks 40 minutes after arriving at the bar and ordered food shortly after. The food and drinks were very good and we both enjoyed the meal. We stayed around after for some more drinks as we had nowhere else booked for the evening but unfortunately this service was quite slow too. In all we were very disappointed with our experience in a five star hotel. Nothing about the service was particularly welcoming and not what one would expect of a restaurant at that price point. Simple things like our cutlery being placed in the wrong location on the table just felt lackluster. I will not be back.
