The hotel is a top tier hotel with responsive service, great food, and a terrific central Dublin location. The courtyard garden is an oasis. The rooms have every amenity. The concierge helped me plan a complicated full day private tour, which local tour companies could not organize. The staff are great and very professional
My review title says it all … I’ve stayed in many Dublin hotels over the years. And The Merrion is simply the best. Hands down. Every aspect of my stay in the hotel exceeded my expectations and delivered completely on the 5 star hotel experience. The rooms are a beautiful classic French design, with soft cream hues and elegant furnishings - think the Ritz London albeit more subtle and understated. The hotel is boutique, but it has a beautiful garden square, which is lovely to have a drink or lunch in on a fine day. If it’s cold, attentive staff provide you with blankets. Yes, the service is that good. The cocktail bar is exceptional. I take my cocktails very seriously and The Merrion doesn’t mess around. It largely sticks to the classics and executes them perfectly. Some of the best French 75 and Old Fashioned cocktails I’ve had. The bar is quiet, so not for people that want to party. More a refined drink for couples. I didn’t eat dinner in the hotel, but the breakfast and lunch menus were varied, inventive, and delicious. Possibly the biggest draw, however, is the unparalleled service. Due to it being a smaller 5 star, the staff know your name and are always there to assist you and are lightning fast. I have rarely experienced warm, friendly, and effective staff as good as this in hotels. First rate overall!…
First class hotel, and service. The restaurant and bar were excellent. The location is good as well. The service is first class and everyone we came in contact with were totally committed to our needs.
We spent only one night at the Merrion but it was a fantastic stay! The staff at the hotel could not have been nicer! The place is beautiful, immaculate, and comfortable. The room was quiet and perfect. Our room was not ready upon arrival so they held our bags and placed them in our room before we returned back to the hotel later that afternoon. In the interim, we asked about nearby coffee and they recommended Viola, right around the corner. Great choice. Breakfast was served starting at 7:00 am which made it easy to get our day going early. The Merrion is also walking distance from many interesting sights.
Exceptional hotel experience in every way! Lovely appointed room, outstanding staff experience, exceptional concierge staff. Such a memorable trip to Dublin. Highly recommend especially if your first visit as the entire staff was supportive and insightful. Hope to return one day
This is by far one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. The staff is the finest collection of hotel employees I have ever come across. Derek at concierge booked us at the most incredible restaurants and his knowledge of the city is second to none. What an incredible stay.
This is a Wonderful hotel , so luxurious, comfortable,spotless,staff superb,food superb,room so comfortable, everything is looked after by the wonderful staff, a real treat away, cannot fault this wonderful hotel.Lovely open fires in the drawing room to relax and have lunch when you arrive.
We stayed the first night at the FitzWilliam because our travel agent screwed up and the merrion was full. When we switched it was like entering the gates to heaven. The place is perfect- gorgeous large rooms; fabulous classy decor with cool art; quiet, even though it was full; brilliant restaurant for dinner ( we ate in the Garden as the Michelin restaurant is closed on sundays). The Merrion is heaven. Go there. Pay whatever - you’ll be happy.
We had three nights in Dublin and we wanted them to be perfect. A friend recommended The Merrion Hotel and it did not disappoint. The location is near the Trinity College Dublin campus (the reason for our visit was to return our daughter to school), the National Gallery, Stephen's Green, and loads of restaurants and shops. But even though all of these important sites were nearby, I would have been happy spending my days at all of the gorgeous rooms, facilities (pool, spa, and gym) and restaurants that the Merrion Hotel has to offer.
Everything about The Merrion Hotel is top notch - the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are luxurious and the beds are beyond comfy. Love the Asprey amenities too. We stayed 4 nights, it’s so easy to walk everywhere from Merrion Square. Very special place!
