My daughter treated me to Afternoon Tea today 31/3/2015 (a Mothers day gift) and what an experience, cakes were all delicious, and presentation was exquisite, we were looked after by Ivan and he explained all about the Art in the hotel & the relevance to the cakes, any cakes we could not eat were given to us in a beautiful...

I reserved a table for Afternoon Tea for my birthday, and the staff were very attentive to some small requests. We had the nicest table by the window and in front of the fire and the staff were very good at telling us about the experience. Regarding the food - the cucumber sandwich was very tasty, but the beef and... More

My wife and I have just spent four fantastic days in the Merrion hotel in Dublin, from the moment we got out the taxi and were greeted by the very smart uniformed doorman, we expected to be looked after but not on the scale we were. We were upgraded to a suite ( WOW INDEED). The whole staff were very... More

There is no doubt that this is one of the finest hotels in Dublin. The old world charm is palpable and the staff well trained and courteous. It's understated and not as stuffy as it might be. There are definitely businessmen in the sitting rooms and lounges dressed in business suits but there are also others who seem to be... More

An outstanding hotel with excellent service set in the heart of Dublin. Great rooms only negative was the building work going on in the gardens they were not supposed to start work until 10am but on our stay the builders could be heard from 7.30am onwards.

Stayed here for 3 nights in mid-March and fell in love this hotel. It definitely has a stuffy vibe to it but everything else about the hotel more then made up for that. The street its located on is absolutely perfect. The hotel itself is beautiful and clean. The rooms are so spacious, clean and decorated just lovely. My room... More

Just home having spent one night in the Merrion. We had an absolutely brilliant time from the minute we put our foot through the door until we left. The staff couldn't have been nicer. My only regret is that we didn't have dinner there too. We had a cocktail in the bar before we went out. Easily one of the... More

This was our third visit to the Merrion and as always it was unfaultable. From the minute you enter the building being greeted in name by the doormen to the minute you check out there is nothing more that any of the staff could have done for us. Reception is faultless. The room we were allocated was beyond our expectations... More

My husband, two year-old son, and I stayed at The Merrion for two nights on a recent trip to Dublin and found it to be fantastic--the service, staff, location, special touches in the room, excellent breakfast, indoor pool, really everything--I could go on and on! Although we were clearly not typical guests of the hotel (young family, kids, etc.), we... More
