The room was gorgeous - large with all mod cons. The staff were very accommodating. We had a fab breakfast & an amazing afternoon tea. The public area are... More

We extended our stay for a 4th night as we just could not bear having to leave! Truly one of the finest hotel experiences in all of Europe. The staff is exceptionally well trained, and go way beyond being courteous and helpful, they are actually pleasant too! Trust the concierge, never steered us wrong on anything. Stunning pool, outdoor garden... More

A very classy hotel with great rooms, great service and a great location. Business or pleasure this place has it all. Would love to return again one day. It's not cheap but you pay for what you get so actually great value in that sense. Nothing negative at all except maybe they could update some of the gym equipment. It's... More

We had a fantastic stay at the lovely, art filled Merrion. What made this place so special was the extremely helpful, friendly and efficient staff. Everyone from the valet, reception, restaurants(John, waiter ) and concierge staff (James) went the extra mile. The reception area is a bit tired looking but the garden and the rooms were lovely. Great indoor pool... More

A lovely hotel with great staff who are very helpful and pleasant. The location is great ... within walking distance of shopping, Trinity, Museums, etc. Old World charm with new world ammenities. We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone. We found it good value for what you got compared to other hotels in the same price range.

This was our first stop on our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. All of the staff were friendly, courteous, and helpful. The accommodations and drawing rooms were cozy and welcoming; we really felt at home during our stay. We can't wait to return in the near future!

Great hoel, great location, and a wonderful staff. If you want to stay at a first rate hotel in a central location then stay at the Merrion. esay walks to Trinity college and Grafton Street. Very good restaurants and Pubs right around the corner. Facilities are fantastic. This is the only place we would stay in Dublin

A really beautiful hotel with well maintained fixtures. Everything looked very classic but you could tell they had been updated and maintained regularly. The gym was very small but was nice to at least have something there, and they have a small pool as well. Excellent service throughout the stay.
