This was our last stop on a 10 day golf trip to Ireland. We hadn't stayed at the Merrion before. The experience was exceptional. This hotel is every bit as good as any 5 star hotel that we have stayed at in the world.The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. The facilities are beautiful. Breakfast was very nice.

I stayed for one night but wished it had been longer! It was so nice and it is so long since I have been to Dublin, it has made me think it would be a good venue for NYE. From the moment of arrival until I checked out everyone was very helpful. I was tired on arrival and was pleased... More

This hotel is a re-branded Clarion located in Dublin's financial district. The premises are getting tired but generally the hotel is clean and quiet. We were put in a disabled room, which bathroom can be uncomfortable for average height people. The shower door leaked (missing a gasket) and flooded the room when used. Biggest complaint is they charged my credit... More

We stayed here two nights on a TA recommendation. It didn’t disappoint. The hotel is well located in the central part of the city. You can walk to Grafton Street and the Temple Bar area, but the hotel is on a quiet street. There is a Green Bus stop very near by. Breakfast was good, but make sure that you... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The staff was friendly and very professional. They couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. If we ever make it back to Dublin, I would definitely stay there. It was a wonderful experience!

Great location, excellent customer service, lovely room. What more can I say. We recently enjoyed 3 nights at The Merrion Hotel and highly recommend it. The location enabled us to walk to a lot of the historical sites and we were only a block away from St Stephens Green. Many fine restaurants were also within walking distance. The service at... More

Two nights at this hotel were not enough; I wish I could have stayed longer. It is lovely (located in a row of Georgian townhouses), the staff is excellent, and the room my husband and I had was perfect: beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and exceptionally clean. The hotel also is ideally located for sightseeing in Dublin's city center. I'd make... More

Our group of 30 stayed here at the end of August. We had been recommended the Merrion by contacts in Dublin and could not have been happier with our experience. The staff, rooms and location are faultless. The Cellar Bar & Restaurant are housed in the old wine cellars which are centuries- old and brimming with atmosphere. Would have liked... More

The Merrion has everything a person could hope for in a 5 star hotel. The doorman greets you, the concierge staff is kind and extremely helpful, and every employee has a smile and a greeting as you pass in the hall. The service is extremely professional and courteous, while friendly and personal. The rooms are lovely and well appointed even... More
