I had to stay in Dublin at short notice over a weekend for a family funeral, from arrival to departure my family was attended to in a sensitive and sympathetic manner beyond what one might expect. I am so grateful to the employees of the Merrion, thank you.

The Merrion is heralded as the top hotel in Dublin, and our stay confirmed its reputation. It is a treat to stay in an architecturally significant set of buildings, and the massive art collection (complete with complimentary bound guidebook) is an additional attraction. From the moment we arrived at the curb, the superb service began with the doormen and porters.... More

my family travelled from all over Europe to meet here for the weekend. The Property is comfortable and well kept and the staff charming and accommodating. But don't expect everything to be as you ordered !! If you're happy to accept near enough at a very high price this is the place for you.

Excellent hotel in centre of Dublin. Both bedroom and in particular, the lounge areas were excellent with a great feel and atmosphere. Fantastic local art on the walls to. Staff attentive and helpful, but not in any way overbearing. Hotel easy walking to all the main city centre areas.

Best hotel in town and very convenient. pool is perfect for a morning swim and afternoon tea at the fireplaces, even in May, but a raining day in May is a must. Would love to go back again, and hope it won't get too expensive for business budget.

My husband and I spent 3 nights here and enjoyed the wonderful location, atmosphere and comfortable ambience. We loved the cosy sitting rooms, the Art and the bar. On the downside, the breakfast room in the basement is a bit depressing so better to have Continental breakfast in the lounge and so many people come in for Afternoon tea that... More

This is a truly elegant hotel right in the heart of Dublin. Service is excellent, rooms are beautifully decorated and the hotel bar is top notch. The Merrion is centrally located to many of the top attractions that Dublin has to offer. Trinity College, Temple Bar District, and Grafton street are all few blocks away. The Merrion is one of...

Loved the hotel! The lobby lounge is amazing with two large fireplaces - very cosy. The Lobby lounge overlooks the garden courtyard also very nice. We used the pool - its a bit on the small side but very nice. My main issue was the rooms were rather bland and could use updating considering the cost per night. We also... More

The Tetra Spa in the Merrion Hotel is a gem with its wonderful staff very ably led by the manager Bernadette and kept spotlessly clean. The staff is exceptional, friendly; know you by name and always willing to help. . Recently my wife and I had a full body massage in this wonderful relaxing retreat and it is certainly world...
