Booked well in advance and it was a nice treat. The hotel is stunning and the service excellent. It was sold as Festive Afternoon Tea though and there wasn't so much as a hymn playing subtly in the background - just silence - so there really wasn't a festive atmosphere unfortunately. Obviously the sound of silence has been deemed more... More

My wife and I spent four nights at The Merrion after four nights at the spectacular Dromoland Castle in County Clare. We would have expected a Dublin hotel to pale a bit in comparison, but we weren't disappointed with The Merrion in the least. The Merrion is every bit a five star property, and it surely deserves its fantastic reputation.... More

We recently spent four nights at The Merrion during a quick trip to explore the city and could not have been happier with the hotel. Our room was spacious with all of the comforts you would expect from a top notch hotel. Upon our early arrival we were able to refresh in the spa / gym area that contains a... More

Stayed here on a flying visit to meet up with very special friends. The hotel, staff, food, spa, atmosphere all deserve 10 out of 10. The Merrion deserves it's continued spot as No. 1 Hotel in Dublin. Thank you!

This hotel brings old world charm to the busy Dublin streets. The rooms are beautifully appointed, if sometimes a bit small. The pool in the spa is large enough to have a proper swim, and the reception areas are cosy and relaxing. Yes it is a bit expensive, but as it is a stones throw away from St Stephens Green... More

The hospitality, comfort and attention to detail, the central location, casual and fine dining ideal. But even more beautiful when dressed for the season! Yes, it's a little expensive (over my business travel cap) but worth every penny. If you need to be 'at home' in Dublin, you can't do better. The only problem is, now that I'm home again,... More

We stayed for 3 nights for our 25th anniversary treat. The hotel was just fab and everything we had hoped it would be. We ate in the restaurant Patrick Gilbaud downstairs which was totally outstanding and highly recommended.

Spent 3 nights here. Very established and classy establishment. Service was very professional. Expensive as you'd expect for hotel of this caliber. Rooms in Main House had super high ceilings and were well appointed. Breakfast was tasty. Fireplace were lit w/ wood and peat and added nice charm to the place. Lovely art.

This hotel is simply the best in Dublin. It delivers 5 star hospitality with a genuine homely feel. Our room was very spacious with a luxurious feel to it. We overlooked the garden which is beautifully decorated for Christmas. The hotel is in a gorgeous Georgian building close to Stephen's Green, Grafton Street and all the major museums and attractions... More
