Great location, excellent customer service, lovely room. What more can I say. We recently enjoyed 3 nights at The Merrion Hotel and highly recommend it. The location enabled us to walk to a lot of the historical sites and we were only a block away from St Stephens Green. Many fine restaurants were also within walking distance. The service at... More

Two nights at this hotel were not enough; I wish I could have stayed longer. It is lovely (located in a row of Georgian townhouses), the staff is excellent, and the room my husband and I had was perfect: beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and exceptionally clean. The hotel also is ideally located for sightseeing in Dublin's city center. I'd make... More

Our group of 30 stayed here at the end of August. We had been recommended the Merrion by contacts in Dublin and could not have been happier with our experience. The staff, rooms and location are faultless. The Cellar Bar & Restaurant are housed in the old wine cellars which are centuries- old and brimming with atmosphere. Would have liked... More

The Merrion has everything a person could hope for in a 5 star hotel. The doorman greets you, the concierge staff is kind and extremely helpful, and every employee has a smile and a greeting as you pass in the hall. The service is extremely professional and courteous, while friendly and personal. The rooms are lovely and well appointed even... More

Our two nights at the Merrion was wonderful in every way, from the welcoming birthday fruit and chocolate, to the ungodly-early help with our bags and taxi departure. Our dinner at the attached Michelin restaurant was fabulous in terms of both food and service. This was an elegant experience in an old-worldly, class way.

Lovely hotel in every way! Convenient location, friendly service and a beautiful room made our stay a wonderful one. We arrived early in the morning and every effort was made to find and make ready a room for us. We would stay here again for sure.

We stopped into the Cellar for lunch with a reservation. It was empty. 4 staff members to 4 guests and we were still treated as an inconvenience. For an empty restaurant in a crowded city it seems they can ill afford such behavior. Terrible service and will never return. If this is how they treat guests in a restaurant, I'd... More

So how do I define the "it" factor? What is it that could distinguish this hotel from others with the same number of stars? For me it is the transformation from the street to the hotel's heart - elegant facade, unpretentious, direct from the pavement/sidewalk. Directly into a classic, elegant room which has the important function as the HQ for... More

We just returned from a twelve day land tour of Scotland and Ireland, booked through luxury company Abercrombie and Kent. Thank goodness for the Merrion, which turned out to be the ONLY good hotel booked during the entire trip. Frankly, our eleven couples were sad to leave the property, as we were already a week into our trip and had... More
