This August 23rd sees the start of a new chapter for the iconic townhouse at 41 St.Stephen’s Green ( previously Residence private members club) as The Grayson.
The building itself is extraordinary and we have set out to highlight its original features, protect its structure, whilst adding a fresh, bright and comfortable feel. The first detail you notice is the facade, covered in luscious ivy that runs the height of the building.
Interior designer Ann-Marie O’Neill notes: ‘We were very much guided by the original Georgian features in the existing building when developing the interior design concept for The Grayson.
We saw it as a priority to show off the beautifully retained features of the original house in the interior design. Yet at the same time it was also important that the interior was glamorous, contemporary and chic.
We carefully researched and chose beautiful materials to use in the design such as Italian marbles, rosewood veneers and bronze to emphasise the chic and contemporary ambience of The Grayson’.
Down the hallway, enter into the Ground Floor bar, a cosy spot for casual lunch from 12:00 – 15:00 Monday to Friday, or drinks and bar snacks any time of day or night seven days a week.
Step towards the back of the building and you’ll find yourself under a dazzling glass roof. Take a seat in the Atrium and feel like you’re dining al fresco, without being exposed to the elements.
Bright and warm during the day, romantic and cosy with the stars as your ceiling at night. An open topped terrace sits a few steps above, with a reclining roof to unfold when the sun shines.
One floor below, the lower ground floor has been transformed into beautiful bright rooms with bronze topped bars. This floor is set up with hi-tech AV systems, perfect for work meetings during the day and entertaining at night.
From 10pm till late on Thursdays through to Saturdays, music and drinks are the order of the evening on our ground floor and lower ground floors, with DJs playing tunes you know and love overlooking the buzzing Atrium. No bookings required, just drop by.
The two floors above offer dinner seven nights a week from 5pm and long lunches every weekend from 12-4pm. The rooms are simply stunning, with big sash windows overlooking Ireland’s arguably most famous park. High ceilings, parquet wooden floors, fireplaces, and elegant small bars shape the rooms.

The top floor is one big pop of colour, and sure to surprise. Bold turquoise walls, with fantastic contemporary art, comfy seats to sink into, windows to gaze out of, it’s a place to while away the afternoon with friends, celebrate special occasions and make memories.
Food in the Grayson is the brainchild of Head Chef Jacson Reboli, who has been putting together a diverse menu over the last six months that is centred around beautiful fresh ingredients that are bursting with colour and flavour.
A casual and hearty menu fits the bill for mid week lunches, with favourites like Steak sandwich, griddled onions, sweet pepper relish, swiss cheese & watercress or lighter dishes like Crisp seabream, pea & chervil puree, crab & couscous of cauliflower, bottarga, and a bar snack menu to nibble and enjoy throughout the day and night.
