This is a lovely hotel in a great central location. I phoned in a reservation for seven days and was promised a garden view room. When I arrived, I was told the garden view was available for only 3 days and for "my convenience" they would place me in a room with a city view; that is, an alley way.... More

We booked a slot for an artist's tea here. Wow, what a lovely and well worth experience. The hotel has one of the largest private collections of art in Europe. It's something like 36 euros each, but you could even share one tea among two people if they allow....there was plenty. For a special occasion, this is tops!!! Very romantic... More

I recently stayed here with a group of old friends who were meeting up for a mini reunion from all over Ireland and abroad. We wanted to treat ourselves a little and be close to city centre restaurants and bars. It was my second time visiting the Merrion and I'm happy to say it was every bit as good as... More

Great European charm in a lovely hotel. Great location to sights, music, restaurants, shopping and the hop on hop off bus. Loved the room and big bathroom. Cozy sheets and comforter. Very comfortable hotel with a Michelin starred restaurant.

The service was 5 star from start to finish. It was an excellent way to finish our girls weekend as we were made feel extra special! The food and cocktails were delicious but the extra mile the staff went was really what made the experience, especially our waiter phil. He was friendly and helpful and we were never left waiting...

The Merrion was an absolute bliss to stay at. We travelled with an 8 week old infant , and our every need was taken care off. Attention to detail, is what the Merrion is all about. We arrived to a room with a baby crib, a baby gown as well as an entire baby range of toiletries. The staff are... More

The understated elegance of Georgian Dublin still survives at the Merrion Hotel. Standards of service are simply outstanding from the smallest detail of room service to the wonderful Art Tea (an absolute must). What a pleasure it is to see the simply outstanding collection of Irish art spaced around the hotel along with historical artifacts and photos. Take a stroll... More

At the advice of our bicycle tour operator, Backroads, we booked The Merrion. The service was impeccable starting with the doormen in greatcoats and top hats. Reception was cordial and we were given a guided tour of the well equipped hotel. We received a complimentary upgrade to spacious, immaculate room facing the Parliament. We were a short walk to Trinity... More
