Clean room, comfortable bed, well appointed bathroom, great food, lovely friendly staff. Just one problem: the television was incredibly annoying as it shut down or froze multiple times while I was watching. How hard could it be to get a proper working television in a hotel room? That's just a basic "must have". It totally ruined my stay.

Great hotel for a stay in Dublin. It is in the perfect location for walking to the important sites and parks, the service was perfect, and our room was spectacular. We booked the Town and Country package which included 3 nights at the Merrion including massages, a tour of the hotel's art collection, afternoon tea, private chauffeured airport pickup, welcome...

Loved every minute, intend to go back. From the valet parking to the helpfulness and friendliness (so well trained) of the staff. The afternoon tea looked delicious, but we didn't partake, as we were booked for an early bird elsewhere. Breakfast was excellent. We were unprepared for the amount of staff attending us so hadn't enough tips ready. We wanted... More

We stayed at the Merrion for 3 nights over the weekend in a Garden Wing room. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and a great place to relax after long walks through Dublin. As the Merrion is centrally located all attractions are an easy walk or short ride away. The front-desk staff and housekeeping were highly attentive and very friendly.... More

I have stayed at the Merrion hotel 4 times thus far and the consistent friendly welcome is the reason I return. The rooms are small but perfectly furnished ( be sure to request a room away from the housekeeping staff closet which can get noisy in the morning). While breakfast is expensive (if not included in your rate) the service... More

Everything was excellent! We stayed at the Merrion a few years back and didn't like it but this time, I have to say it was amazing. So much so we rebooked for a second evening. Our room on both nights was beautiful, the staff were superb and our meals (dinner and breakfast) were excellent. We use to constantly stay at... More

This is a small but elegant hotel with service that rivals any Ritz or Four Seasons Hotel anywhere I've been. The staff are impeccably trained and the hotel has a lot of charm, especially the Cellar Bar. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We have stayed at the Merrion for many years and always look forward to the warm welcome from the staff, the amazing Cellar Restaurant for breakfast or dinner, night caps at Bar 23, afternoon tea. By far it's on the top of our list as a favorite hotel we've stayed at around the world and is defintely the best in... More

We booked The Merrion for my 60th birthday holiday to Dublin. From check in to departure it was all a delight, including the little birthday cakes in our room on arrival. Our room (a king in the garden wing) was light, airy, spacious, well equipped and beautifully serviced by housekeeping. Bathroom was excellent, lot of lovely toiletries, and very clean.... More
