Just spent the most relaxing weekend at The Merrion. The staff were so attentive, courteous and friendly, we felt like we were being welcomed home. Our room was quiet, spacious and comfortable (we were given an upgrade without asking) and the breakfast, delivered on a heated trolley, was perfectly cooked and presented. A really memorable hotel experience.

After spending 4 days at The Merrion on my third visit to Dublin this was by far the best Hotel I have stayed at in Ireland. Located next to Merrion Square it is a classic style hotel with great service and amenities. The welcome is quite warm and check-in was made trouble free. The Junior Suite we stayed was superb....

This may possibly be my first 5-Star rating on a luxury hotel. Sheer opulence. From the moment we were met at the front door by name and our bags were taken the service was amazing. The hotel is so interesting. The gardens, the art collections, the drawing rooms where tea and tasty sweet treats are served. The old styled bar... More

Was treated like royalty from the moment we arrived- was given an upgrade by the grace of the hotel and the receptionist walked us to the dungannon suite and made polite conversation and asked about the reason for our stay. When we told her it was our anniversary she also organised a bottle of champagne to be dilevered to the... More

Pretty hotel in an up market area of Dublin, accessible transport links and short walking distance from main attractions. The hotel room (standard, garden area) was clean and comfortable. A proper king size bed - very comfortable, proper quilt and soft sheets and pillows. Daily cleaning was up to expected standard and bed turning service had nice touches like leaving... More

Loved this hotel which is in a class of its own. Fantastic location and just five minutes walk to Grafton street. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and was actually sad to leave. From the moment you arrive to leaving the staff are very attentive catering to your every need. My husband and I had an amazing experience... More

This is classic 5 star with lovely attention to detail. To our relief, the staff didn't look down their noses at us in the way we have seen at other 5 star hotels. They were warm and friendly. Our receptionist walked us to our rooms after check in. Our children found lovely fruit plates and smoothies waiting for them, colouring... More

We LOVED this hotel. We arrived very early (about 9am) after flying all night to get to Dublin for the first part of our honeymoon. Despite our early arrival we were immediately let into our upgraded room, where we were able to take a nap before heading out for the day. The hotel manages to be traditional and historic feeling,...

Just a great hotel that has fantasic attention to detail and a great personal touch. Qualities sadly missing in some other 5 star hotels. Staff are very attentive. It is also in a great location in the heart of Dublin.
