Have just returned from a 2 night stay in Dublin. We stayed in this beautiful hotel and were impressed with the elegance and peace that it offered. It is ideally located for a short stay .... Close to the action but in a quiet street!! The staff were incredibly efficient and polite. We were on a bit of a tight... More

This is a good hotel in a great location. The service from concierge, reception and the lounge area is excellent. We have stayed here before and enjoyed it just as much then. The only issue (still) is the Cellar Bar where we waited ages to get served. Not great when you have just arrived from the airport with 2 hungry... More

We recently spent a night in the gorgeous Merrion Hotel and had a really lovely time. We had lunch in The Cellar bar which was very nice and reasonably priced. Our room was beautiful and there were some lovely, unexpected touches when we arrived in our room. Dinner in the Cellar restaurant was delicious with a wide selection on the... More

This is a lovely, classy, and very elegant hotel situated on a quiet street in the center of Dublin. During a 2 week trip to Ireland with another couple, we spent several days at The Merrion on both ends of our trip. The staff is friendly, helpful, and makes the experience wonderful. We loved the hotel so much that we... More

Have just returned from another short stay with my wife at The Merrion. The whole experience was first class. A three course dinner and breakfast were included in the package and these were excellent. On arrival at the room a cheesecake with a 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate were waiting for us. This accompanied by the fact that the duty... More

We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at The Merrion. What a wonderful gem of a hotel. Excellent location, central to everything and practically next to the lovely St Stephens Green. The welcome on arrival is very warm and friendly and the receptionist personally escorts you to your room. All the public rooms and bedrooms are beautiful, with... More

We have stayed here on several occasions over the last few years and i'm amazed at how the staff make you feel so welcome and as if you've known them for years. The rooms are excellent, service is second to none and the food is fantastic. We tried three of the rival 5 star hotels last year and was disappointed... More

This review is just of the afternoon tea only as we did not stay at the hotel, though I should add that the hotel reception where we waited to be seated was stunning and the reception staff extremely professional so I would definitely come to try the accommodation should I ever be in Dublin again. We were seated for our... More
