Another amazing visit to our 'go-to' Dublin destination. The hotel is fabulous, welcoming and has an undeniable charm. Having stayed here for 14 years we now feel we return as friends. The little touches are what sets The Merrion head and shoulders above the others.

We stayed at the Merrion for 4 nights recently. This was our first trip to Dublin. All of the hotel staff worked as one and the service was very uniform and consistent throughout our stay. Very friendly and helpful at all levels. James and Shawn (Sean) were very helpful at the concierge desk providing answers to our many repeat questions... More

Amazing from start to finish, booked in early as we were having lunch at Patrick Guilbauds restaurant and everything went smoothly, from our car being parked to bags in the room everything was seamless. Hotel facilities outstanding, room was luxurious and turn down service was excellent. Breakfast was outstanding and our server Claudia (I believe) made it even more special... More

We stayed at the Merrion for 2 nights in August and although our general comment is very positive we were slightly disappointed with our stay. The Merrion is a rather big place since they have that new building over the garden. We had booked a junior suite in the older building looking for some charming old Georgian atmosphere which we...

We were in Dublin and called to The Merrion Hotel for some brunch in The Cellar Bar. We had fish and chips with the minted mushy peas for 20 euros each. It was very tasty and worth the money. Shane, Rachel and Phil went out of their way to give us five star service. They made us feel so welcome.... More

Stayed at the Merrion on my first trip to Dublin, and it was the perfect choice. Great location within walking distance of the centre and transport links. Booked a room in the Garden Wing, looking out onto the central gardens, which was lovely and quiet. The room was a good size. There was plenty of storage, the bed was really... More

Our family traveled to The Merrion in Dublin with three children and stayed for a long weekend. We never wanted to leave! They sent the kids little gifts like chocolate covered fruit and smoothies and provided them with little robes and slippers. They truly enjoyed all the small touches. The hospitality was exceptional! The room was one of the best... More
