This hotel was a recommendation through our American Express FHR and we booked a weekend here over the Christmas holidays. I cannot say enough about this hotel, it is comprised of old Georgian mansions and it is amazing, the center of Dublin city and the gardens are beautiful. Food in the cellar restaurant was great, we ate dinner one evening... More

I regularly stay here for business. The hotel is gorgeous; I love walking to my room through the garden corridor. The staff are exceptionally helpful and the breakfast is amazing. I have regularly eaten dinner in their private rooms and the service and ambiance is a mix of contemporary and old world Dublin. While the Shelbourne is its own institution,... More

My partner and I stayed at the hotel for a few days. The Merrion clearly lives up to its reputation. The rooms were spacious and well lit, the furniture was beautifully assembled, the staff could not be more friendly and the food was great. We will definitely come back!

Every single member of staff at the Hotel were super friendly and nothing was a problem or too much for them. We enjoyed an exquisite afternoon tea and breakfasts which really appealed to the...

My boyfriend and I visited the Cellar Bar this afternoon to try out the Merrion Hotel's well-renowned Sunday Brunch...it didn't disappoint! From the moment we entered the bar, the service was impeccable. The staff were very welcoming and did everything possible to ensure we had a lovely relaxing afternoon. We ordered the eggs benedict and belgian waffles from the brunch... More

Most likely the best afternoon tea in all Ireland in a wonderful elegant relaxed setting with charming and efficient service. Wonderful selection of dainty, tasty sandwiches, cakes, scones, jams, clotted cream,teas and coffees and , if you like, Champagne or a wonderful selection of wines. More than enough for everyone, in fact we took away two 'doggy' bags of what... More

We picked The Merrion hotel on the basis of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we were not disappointed. The hotel is very understated from the roadside. Check in was nice and easy and we were shown to our room, one which was ready early. We picked an upgrade to a superior room and plumped for a "leading weekends" package... More

We were staying in The Croke Park Hotel and as it was my other half's birthday called into The Cellar Bar for cocktails. We were delighted to see Phil the manager who always makes us feel very welcome. I told Peter to make me a cocktail and said surprise me. It was fantastic. Peter is a very talented cocktail maker....
