Since Anantara has taken over what was previously known as’ The Marker Hotel’, all of the 187 bedrooms have been renovated, the bar and public areas have been reimagined and a brand-new restaurant ‘Forbes Street by Gareth Mullins’ will open in the coming weeks.

Broadcaster, fashionista and influencer, Lorraine Keane was the MC for the evening and spoke on stage with the various Anantara The Marker Dublin ‘guru’s’ including Spa and Wellness Director, Bodina Quereshi, Director of People and Culture, Claire Robert and Executive Chef, Gareth Mullins.
