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...

Its well known that the Merrion Hotel is fabulous, but after staying there last November, I can confirm that its 7 stars out of 5! Located in the centre of the city, it has everything an upmarket hotel offers and the spa is one of the best I have ever been in.

This is the hotel to stay at in Dublin. I've stayed at most of the five star hotels in Ireland but this is the most elegant and authentic in my view. The Patrick Guilbaud restaurant is the best in the country and the only with 2 Michelin stars but the cellar restaurant is also a great choice for a power... More

Great hotel, staff and location. Beautiful rooms and perfect place for mid afternoon tea. (Don't forget to make reservations ahead of time because they fill up quickly). Since this was an anniversary trip they upgraded our room and they had beautifully decorated mini sweets on a tray for us with "Happy Anniversary" written on it. In all a wonderful experience.
