A fabulous hotel. Beautifully renovated Georgian houses provide a very cosy, slightly "old world" environment. Try to get a room in the old part of the hotel, where the ceilings are high and things generally seem more gracious. The food is excellent. My only gripe would be the requirement for a hotel resident to book afternoon tea. Don't go if... More

This has so far been one of those most amazing experiences I have ever had. We received a 1night stay as a present for our engagement. When the staff found this out we received complimentary champagne. The room was comfortable, large and luxurious. The bath and products were lovely. The wine was delicious and the staff good fun. The pool... More

My partner surprised me with a weekend away to Dublin for my birthday, this hotel was perfect. It had so much character and the staff were lovely. Shame that we had building outside our window but that didn't bother us! We had breakfast in bed one morning, would definitely recommend. Perfect weekend!

The whole experience was fabulous - superb service from all the staff, excellent room with every facility you could possibly need, attractive surroundings including mature gardens and an impressive art collection and a relaxed, informal atmosphere. We dined... More

Great hotel, great location. The staff and accommodation were lovely. The only criticism was a long wait to be seated in the cellar bar. After a bit of a wait we decided to leave as we hadn't been acknowledged at all. The bar did not appear to be that busy.

The Merrion Hotel provided the ideal location for the family to celebrate Mother/Grannys 80th Birthday. There was lots to do with the shops, art galleries, bars and restaurants nearby. The ambiance of the hotel combined with the wonderful staff made everyone feel very comfortable and Mother was made to feel very special.
