My wife and I stayed for three nights at The Merrion Hotel in Dublin, Ireland, May 28 - May 31, 2014. I could not say more positive things about this hotel. It is located in a very delightful section of the city, the Georgian section near Merrion Park. It was close to most everything. The staff was extremely helpful and... More

We’ve overnighted here twice in the past year. It’s a very comfortable hotel in a central location. Staff are excellent, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Lounges are perfect for lounging and the internal garden is a very pleasant oasis – weather permitting. The only negative we found, on both visits, was the breakfast service. The first time the breakfast room... More

I don't write that many reviews but wanted to after my recent 3 night stay at the Merrion. This hotel is sheer class. Situated in one of Dublin's most beautiful areas near St Stephens green it is located near the main shopping areas and many great bars and restaurants. I've stayed in a few great hotels all over the world... More

The only place to stay in Dublin is The Merrion Hotel. The fabulous rooms, service and location cannot be beat! Between sightseeing and business, it was always a joy to retreat to the drawing room for afternoon tea or a pre-dinner cocktail. Our server, Alexandre, was especially helpful and fun to chat with. I look forward to visiting the Merrion... More

To me the Merrion Hotel is the what Tiffany is to Holly Golightly - nothing bad can happen here. It is a special place. It isn't cheap - it is a treat and we can't afford to spend more than one or two nights at a time here, we have always been treated in thee same courteous manner by all... More

We stayed at the Merrion in June to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The hotel is beautiful, elegant and staying there made the weekend really special. Our welcome by the doormen and being escorted into reception was amazing. We booked a deal which included champagne in our room and a 3 course meal in the... More

I was traveling with cousins who always stay at the Merrion. I confess it is usually out of my price range when I'm in Dublin, but this was definitely at treat. First the positives, of which there are many. You are greeted at the Merrion by every, and I mean every, staff member you encounter. The training of the staff... More

I echo the other reviewers in that the service at the Merrion is exceptional. All of my quirky requests were greeted with a smile and immediate response. So, don't hesitate to ask for whatever you need; I am confident the staff will work their magic for you. I was in the Lord Antrim suite and it is spacious and comfortable.... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful The Merrion Hotel is. My husband ended up in the hospital and the hotel bent over backwards for me. I will be forever grateful to them for their kindness. The service is wonderful, the people who work there are kind and caring. Definitely a 5 star hotel.
