Our family of four spent one night at the Merriman in March 2008. We hadn't booked ahead, but had no problem getting a room for the night after showing up at about 5pm after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren.
Our room had a king and one twin bed. The front desk clerk was very helpful and personally brought up an extra cot for our daughter along with extra linens and towels. The beds were very comfortable. There was a small table with two chairs. The carpet needed to be replaced. Our room looked out over the parking lot, with a view of the bay in the distance. Rooms on the other side of the hallway looked out over the main street. The bathroom was large, but the tile around the tub was mildewy and needed a good cleaning.
Breakfast was included and served in a very nice dining room. Selections were limited and the waiter was aloof and unfriendly. We ate and quickly left.
The hotel is located on Kinvara's main street, with two grocery stores across the street and easy access to a handful of pubs and restaurants. Unfortunately there was no live music while we were there.
We stopped by the Pier Head pub for a pint -- it had a lovely peat fire with windows looking out over the bay.
Overall, the Merriman was just average -- it could use some updating, but it was a comfortable and quiet night after a long day of driving and sight-seeing.
