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

I recently went on an 11 day trip to Ireland and switched hotels every one or two days. The merrion served the best breakfast out of all the hotels I stayed at (ashford, dromoland, hayfield, etc), in my opinion. The rooms were lovely and the service was great. The hotel was a quick walking distance from many major historical sites.... More

Just returned from 5 night stay, what a lovely hotel. The everyone is smiling and helpful. The front desk clerk walks each person at check-in to their room. The rooms are quiet, the bed is heavenly, the sheets & towels are soft, and bathroom is large with a separate shower & tub. We had a partial view of the gardens... More

It's amazing to walk off a busy Dublin street into a lovely oasis. The hotel is so enjoyable to just be in. I think one of my favourite things about it was the smell (as strange as that sounds). There was just a fresh smell to it, even in the elevator. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms large, everything... More
