Nice food, but too dark.

Welcoming place, and amazing food for a hotel restaurant. Would like more light if possible. Great wine.

We were led into a dungeonlike-like stone walled basement area which... More

As we were staying at the Merrion we thought we'd call in for Brunch while we were there and I'm so glad we did! There was so much choice, everything was delicious and there was so much of it! We had pancakes, some pastries and some sausages and couldn't finish any of it! Highly recommend it!

Friday 8th was a very wet and windy day when our ship docked in Dubllin. However to know that we were meeting up with family in the evening at The Merrion Hotel certainly brightened the day.

We were on a short visit to Dublin and made our first visit to this Restaurant following a recommendation from our daughter. We were not disappointed in any way - we both had fish for the main course, excellent in every way. Locally produced Gravalax was a perfect starter and we both finished with a small Pavlova but sufficient for... More

We had lunch as well as dinner in the Cellar restaurant. Excellent service and food plus you can sit in quiet little stone alcoves which is very romantic. Highly recommend !
