Precisely the level of service both my girlfriend and I had hoped for; very attentive however not over the top. Whilst the hotel is maginificient both in it's heritage and attention to detail, the staff truly make it an experience to remember. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Love this hotel the best throughout my entire 23 days Europe trip! It was situated close to the shopping area and lots of eatery round the corner. Service was superb from the moment you stepped out of the taxi as the bellboys greeted you and assist with the luggages. The relaxed atmosphere and tasteful decorations of the old charm hotel...

We absolutely loved our stayed at the Merrion. The biggest disappointment was that we could only stay one night. They staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly! Our room was beautiful as well as the rest of the hotel. You truly felt as though you were staying with royalty. We cannot wait to go back and stay longer!!!

The Art collection is incredible. Spaces comfortable rooms with everything you need for that luxurious stay. Friendly helpful staff with a very warm welcome form the... More

Returned from a wonderful weekend at The Merrion. Stayed on Friday and Saturday night. Arrived just after lunchtime on Friday. Our car and bags were whisked away and we were quickly checked in by the friendly and welcoming reception staff. We decided to have a glass of wine and a coffee at The Cocktail Bar before heading to our room.... More

A much anticipated return visit to the Merrion and, I'm happy to report, it only gets better! A pretty much flawless performance right across the Board. We enjoy the tasteful, elegant, relaxed atmosphere, and the quiet efficiency in the service, along with the natural warmth that you seem to find so prevalent in Ireland. With so many pretenders to five-star... More

I love this hotel! It has a great location right by everything you will want to do to sightsee this great city. We stayed two nights and loved it all. The service was perfect. It was so beautiful and walking into the rooms with the yummy slippers made my day. We loved the older part of the hotel and the... More

Our first visit to Dublin was all a wonderful experience. We loved everything about the city, but particularly our stay at The Merrion. The service was impeccable throughout. Our bedroom in the Garden Wing was very spacious with a huge comfortable bed. We had an excellent meal in the cellar restaurant one evening and enjoyed a delicious tea in the... More

Historical building restored to a magical level. Service is impeccable and every aspect of our stay was perfect. World Class service from the moment you arrive until Emily brings you breakfast in the morning... the entire experience was fantastic. Cellar Bar has a great old school feel and a warm, welcome demeanor.
