You can stay in a hotel in Dublin or you can stay in one of the best hotels in the world, in Dublin. It doesn't get better than this in Ireland, from arrival to departure it is in a league of it's own. We stayed here last year for two nights (don't stay any less as you won't want to... More

I took my best friend here last sat. night as a special birthday present as its her favourite hotel and what a treat it was. A delicious dish of chocolates and a card were delivered to the room, a gesture which was much appreciated. We told everybody we were 'going posh' for the weekend, but we also felt comfortable, nicely... More

We had to wait to check in as the hotel was very busy. We went for lunch and wandered about Dublin a bit as we were early arriving at midday. We requested to be in the old part of the hotel and were upgraded to a suite. The room was superb, on par with Le Bristol in Paris with gorgeous... More

This is a very belated review to acknowledge the wonderful experience of our stay in the Merrion to mark a significant wedding anniversary. On our arrival we were delighted to have been upgraded to a junior suite. The staff were exceptional, friendly but very discreet. We have spread the word amongst our family and friends and hope to return again.

I neither write nor read reviews but I owe it to this hotel to comment. In short, it's wonderful... The best of Old World charm and 21st century luxury. The best hotel stay ever and I can be very critical!
