Just returned from a 4 day stay in the Merrion Dublin and we had an amazing experience. We were celebrating a 50th birthday and the hotel kindly upgraded us to an amazing suite and provided complimnetary champagne on arrival. The service here is second to none, from breakfast to the superb afternoon tea the staff were impressive throughout. The Merrion... More

The hotel is very nice but a bit tired. It's nice if you like old fashioned. We had room 207 which was nice and large but the pillows were very soft. Toiletries and towels were lovely and we had a lovely garden view. The bar was great and the breakfasts were lovely. The staff were very helpful, there was a... More

From our initial greeting at 5am until our departure two days later the Merrion set the bar for excellence. The staff, service and accomadations were impeccable. Whatever our needs, we were met with a warm smile and a "can do" attitude.

As my daughter is getting married this weekend I decided to treat her to afternoon tea in the Merrion Hotel. We had a wonderful experience, top class food in amazing surroundings with the elegance of times past. The theme of the afternoon tea was art in all it's glory which surrounded us on the walls of these beautiful rooms. Our... More

Stayed for two nights at the end of a tour of Ireland,. Perfect in every way . From the bellmen wisking our luggage away safe and sound to a fllawless check- in , our stay started perfectly. The room was not large but perfectly adequate, squeaky clean and the bathroom was large and beautiful. We were a group of six... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always enjoyed our stay unfortunately not this time. We had a room in the main house, rear facing and when we entered the smell of drains was very obvious and only cleared when we opened windows and used the bathroom facilities. We didn't complain as we were only there for... More

The good things written about this hotel are true. Still, I was not impressed with the small gym and the loud banging of doors starting at 6:45 AM. In any case, it is unacceptable that in a hotel of this standing I could NOT manage to get functioning Wifi. I couldn't even use my phone which got no signal. I... More
