My third stay - and it's an oasis in a mad world. Perfect old world charm and service in a luxury modern surrounding. Have moved from Shelbourne - which does have the best bar in any hotel I have been to - to The Merrion and won't be going back. Deserves it's #1 position

Just here for one night... but we got incredible service, and had a beautiful stay. This hotel is so beautiful, and comfortable for our first night after traveling for 24 hours. The best, however, was the incredible service provided by Tomas! He took our GPS to charge it over night, as we were unable to get it to charge in... More

The Merrion provides a quiet spot in which to relax from days spent sightseeing in busy Dublin. It is within easy walking distance of Trinity College, the National Museum of Archeology, and the National Art Gallery. We had a standard garden room and were most satisfied with it and with the services of all the staff with whom we had... More

The room is almost perfect, the mattress with a bent spring that dinged my leg is a minor infraction in an otherwise beautiful room. Service and cleanliness are fantastic. But the spa today, oh my. As an obese American I am resigned to a robe that does not fit. But when I book a deep tissue massage for my bad... More

A fine establishment but they need to make sure that their advertised rooms are correct. We booked into the Garden Wing expecting a view over their lovely gardens, but the room overlooked the rear lane. I would have given the hotel a 5 star rating, but felt that this was misleading. The room itself was lovely and staff most welcoming.

We stayed in Merrion for 2 days in September. Everything about it was exceptional: the staff, the rooms, the extras, the food. They are incredibly child friendly - a feature often lacking in luxury hotels. The staff cannot do enough to please you - from running past you and your buggy to open a door, to anticipating your every need.... More

I love this hotel above all others. The warmth, welcome, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at every level, is the best I've experienced anywhere in the world. The core of it is an old and historic town house, oozing Georgian comfort and grandeur but with every possible modern convenience. It is very well located, moments from St Stephens green,... More

We stayed two nights at The Merrion. The hotel is beautiful, the service impeccable, and the location is wonderful. We walked to all the places we wanted to see in Dublin and never used a cab until the trip to the airport for departure. If you want to begin or end your visit to Ireland on the highest note possible,... More

We stayed at the Merrion for three nights in August. The hotel is located a few steps off the beaten path but still a short 10 minute stroll to Grafton St. as well as many other attractions. The Merrion is charming! We loved the wood burning fireplaces and the staff was friendly and quite accommodating. There was plenty of variety... More
