We LOVED this hotel. We arrived very early (about 9am) after flying all night to get to Dublin for the first part of our honeymoon. Despite our early arrival we were immediately let into our upgraded room, where we were able to take a nap before heading out for the day. The hotel manages to be traditional and historic feeling,...

Just a great hotel that has fantasic attention to detail and a great personal touch. Qualities sadly missing in some other 5 star hotels. Staff are very attentive. It is also in a great location in the heart of Dublin.

The Merrion is in a different league to its Dublin competitors and this in my view is due to the quality and training of its staff. It runs like clockwork and all staff members exude a calm confidence that they impart from the moment you walk through its front door. I have stayed at different times in The Shelbourne and... More

Stayed here for one night and wish it had been longer. From arrival to departure everything was wonderful. Highly recommend this hotel. The food was excellent as was the service. As my husband and I were celebrating birthdays we were delighted to find in our room, cupcakes beautifully decorated with birthday greetings .

I visit Dublin twice a year, and this time I decided to change the hotel, not by my own choice but due to the fact that my usual hotel was fully booked. So I decided to opt for The Merrion. Excellence all the way, the rooms are spacious, the staff are very very very helpful. I gained 2kg as the... More

We spent three luxurious nights in the Merrion Hotel. We arrived early, tired and in need of freshening up. The staff did everything possible to accommodate us and make us feel comfortable while they readied our rooms as quickly as possible. I have nothing but praise for every aspect of this hotel. We can't wait for a return trip!

Simply one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in! Food, service, rooms all to an exceptionally high standard. The position of the Hotel is ideal with a short walk to Dublin centre and the Shops. The staff are of a very high standard, very friendly and there wasn't anything that was too much trouble. If you want an EXCEPTIONAL... More

We stayed at the Merrion twice during our recent trip to Ireland, once at the beginning and once at the end of our travels. Both of our experiences were wonderful. After a long flight from the US, we arrived in Dublin around mid-day, before check-in time. While we could not check in for a few hours, the staff made arrangements... More

This is a really nice hotel, nice relaxing areas for sitting reading newspaper and having a quiet drink. Bedroom was large and nicely decorated, really nice towels and robes. They even put a little towel on the floor each side of the bed with slippers on them. Bed was really comfy and room was quiet. The only thing was I... More

This hotel is terrific. We can say that since the moment we arrived well before normal check-in coming in early from the airport, until we left 4 days later. When we checked in the hotel stowed our luggage and gave us ample space to pull some things from it for touring Dublin in the morning before our room was ready.... More
