This is a great hotel which really deserves it's number 1 rating. Had seamless check in and check out which a lot of other hotels could learn from. It is also the best smelling hotel I have ever stayed at- the peat fire in the drawing room along with the hotels signature scent was really heavenly. The other thing I... More

We had one night in Dublin and so checked into the Merrion. What a fantastic welcome, we also got upgraded room. The room was great (and bathroom) staff superb, and the cocktails excellent. It was so good that we checked back in again 2 days later!

This hotel was our best experience in Dublin. Beautiful lobby, tea rooms, and breathtaking outdoor gardens were only the beginning. The rooms were tastefully decorated with colorful pastels and had elegant bathrooms. They were also very quiet and comfortable after busy days. The pool and exercise areas were fragrant, clean and provided extra amenities like hot tea and fresh fruit.... More

Another fantastic stay at The Merrion. The service and atmosphere is world class. Cannot beat the convenient yet quiet location near St Stephens Green. Staff were very helpful with email queries before our arrival. My wife loves the elegant rooms in the Main House. Be sure to have the breakfast!

Title says it all - well located , high quality service and superior product - luxurious and quite old world meets new world glamour. I can't fault a thing with this hotel - we were in Dublin for a wedding at a hotel around the corner and decided to stay here to be away from the wedding madness and what... More

As soon as we walked into the Merrion my partner and I were made to feel like royalty. I'm not the type of person to want to stay at such a fancy place but we decided to treat ourselves on our one night in Dublin and we are so glad we did. The hotel is perfect in every way. Our... More

The gardens and afternoon tea were our favorite aspects of this hotel. The bed was comfortable, the room was a nice size, especially for European standards. The bathroom had heated floors and towel rack, with great amenities. The staff is very accommodating and professional. We appreciated that it was on a fairly quiet street for peaceful sleeping, but close enough... More

We only stayed one night in the Merrion, and enjoyed it very much. The welcome from reception and efficiency of checking in was excellent. Our room was upgraded and we were very happy with the room and the bathroom. Our whole experience was positive and I can recommend it very highly. Hope to stay again should we return to Dublin.

We stayed overnight in the Merrion during July. The whole experience was first-class, especially being upgrade to a Junior Suite! The accommodation and food were superb and the staff were totally efficient and very friendly. Our room was large and luxurious with a view over Government Buildings. The hotel is just around the corner from Stephen's Green and is within... More

We had the wonderful experience of staying at this lovely, historic hotel for our holiday in Dublin with our 14 month old daughter and loved every minute of it. The staff are all wonderfully trained and very children orientated.... from the amenities in our room to the "extras", like giving us bread to fee the ducks at the park. The... More
