The Merrion has it all...large rooms in a historic hotel but with all modern amenities, along with an incredibly attentive staff. It also has the biggie: location location location. Within a block there was every pub and fish and chips restaurant you could ever want, plus every other ethnic spot along with a huge shopping area. We'll be back.

The Merrion was a beautifully kept, well-priced hotel conveniently located in the heart of Dublin. The room was light, well-furnished with king sized bed, and marble bath. The Cellar restaurant was a great dining option, as well as where a generous breakfast was served. And the indoor pool looked lovely, although we didn't use it. The service was top notch,... More

June 27th 2015. I'm from Dublin but I stayed here overnight with my husband because we went to a show in the Olympia and decided to make a night of it. This hotel is just pure luxury and special. The staff are extremely professional and care about the service they are giving you. We have stayed on a couple of... More

The Merrion lives up to all of its reviews. The rooms are luxurious and immaculate. The staff goes out of their way to anticipate your needs. The two bars are great. Impeccable service with a smile. The doormen and concierge staff are knowledgeable and accommodating. Center city location makes almost everything within walking distance. The only problem is availability. It... More

Although the dining room for afternoon tea is lively the room we stayed in was average. We got a room at the end of a long corridor with no view. The bathroom was large and the bed was comfortable but the room seems dated and in need of sprucing up. The staff were lovely. I was appalled to be charged... More

The staff were welcoming and helpful at every turn. The facilities here are the issue. In our room, we could have used a cabinet of some sort in the bathroom. There was nowhere to store items like makeup and toiletrees that was convenient. The pedestel sink had no bars for hanging towels. I did love the towel warmer in the... More

Luxury and relaxation exudes the Merrion. Excellent staff with 5 star treatment minus pretence. Room comfort is second to none. A must are cocktails in the bar and a drawing room. We went in summer and am excite to hopefully return in winter. Love this hotel.

We celebrated our daughter's graduation and my aunt's 70th birthday at the Merrion. It was amazing! The staff was incredible. We all had fabulous rooms. The Merrion is always top on our list when we are in Dublin.

My family stayed at the Merrion for four nights. The rooms were spacious and gorgeous with fireplaces and chandeliers. Very nicely appointed and comfortable. The meals we had in the restaurant downstairs and the room service we ordered was delicious. The staff is accommodating and gracious. Our kids loved the indoor pool after a day of sight seeing. The hotel... More

Why this hotel is so highly regarded is beyond me. This was our second visit to Ireland and we came this time to stay in a city and celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in Dublin. We were there 6/11 - 6/16, 2015. Nice location as we could walk to the museums and Trinity College etc. I found the hotel itself... More
