A friend and I recently visited Dublin and stayed at the Merrion. We loved the location so central to cultural sites, shops and restaurants. We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the hotel and loved the Cellar Bar. The accommodations were lovely though I didn't enjoy the Garden Wing as much as the original part of the hotel where I had...

Top notch accommodations, service, and location. We occupied the Kirk suite, which was perfect for family of 4 with a boy and girl teen. Separate, connecting rooms for parents and teens. Kids had separate beds and own TV and bath. There was also a large sitting room with TV, dining table and powder room.

We stayed for just one night at the beginning of our vacation. What a lovely welcome to Ireland. The staff were so welcoming and gracious. The room was lovely. Would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We spent two days at the Merrion at the end of a 10-day trip through Ireland. The Merrion deserves every bit of its fine reputation as atop hotel in Ireland's largest city. The classic old structure has been beautifully preserved yet also made entirely up-to-date and wholly charming. The service and attentiveness of the staff is notable, especially the gentlemen...

I stayed in Merrion Hall on several occasions from 1995 with no complaints. I booked in Feb 12 to go for the Madonna concert in July 12 and received confirmation from the hotel of the date and the deposit paid. Ten minutes before I left home to travel to Dublin I got a call to say the hotel was closed... More

Myself and my boyfriend had booked to stay here back in December, 2011 to attend Bruce Springsteen this July. We rang today to confirm the booking and discovered that it had closed without anyone informing us or returning the deposit paid. Very stressful situation all round and we aren't convinced by any promises to help. It might very well be... More

We has checked a few weeks before that the booking had been taken and were advised everything was okay. It looked like this hotel hadn't... More
