The hotel clearly values and nurtures (and probably hires for) great service. From the moment we arrived after a tiring overnight flight, we were warmly greeted and treated like returning family, even thought this was our first time. A lovely upgraded room and a welcoming remembrance for our anniversary added to our enjoyment of our stay, but it was the... More

Waffling between 3 and 4 stars, but decided that the staff deserved the extra star. Our ground floor room faced out to the alley, and the bathroom was outfitted for seniors or persons with disability. The rails and pull-down support reminded me of nursing homes, and the generally bland décor reinforced the impression as well. But if the room was... More

Absolutely the finest hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel was beautiful, comfortable centrally located to many of the most popular and know sites in Dublin. The staff was fabulous. Professional, helpful, friendly and attentive to the guests every need. Clearly are proud and enjoy working at the Merrion. The guest rooms, grounds, tea rooms, bar and restaurant provide... More

There is a huge focus in The Merrion on attentive and discrete Customer service. Everything from the booking to check in and the ungodly hour of the check out was flawless. Room 333 was perfectly appointed and despite the view of a busy construction site from the window, I had a great nights sleep. Amenities were good and the room... More

A quality hotel with a passion for service and classic style throughout. A silver service breakfast was expensive but felt luxurious. The rooms were excellent - proper 4-5 star. A massive and comfortable bed with beautiful bathroom. The restaurant attached is the best in Ireland. I got a great deal on the weekend but it is expensive - but it... More

My family & I stayed here last December for a few days leading up to New Year's Eve. It is a beautiful hotel with elegant décor and is very central; within walking distance of some of Dublin's main streets. The staff were courteous and attentive, in particular the concierges and the staff on the front desk. Unfortunately the Patrick Guilbaud... More

We stayed the first two nights of our holiday to Ireland at the Merrion. I wanted a place to relax and recharge before renting a car and seeing the rest of the Emerald Isle. The Merrion Hotel fit the bill perfectly. One would expect great service from a hotel at this price point, but they far exceeded my expectations. After... More

Yet another outstanding stay at the Merrion. Expensive but the experience is worth it. My wife's favourite hotel. The staff are excellent making a good hotel great. Rooms are well prepared and all the staff from doorman to reception are welcoming and seemed to have "kissed the Blarney Stone"

From the moment you arrive at their doorstep, The Merrion Hotel wows like no other. Attention to detail and great service with a smile. My room, a Superior King in the Garden Wing, was a simple but elegant spacious "Kodak Moment" in my first two days in Dublin. The neighborhood is full of eclectic dining options, but a visit to...
