Enjoyed the stay. Must have their Irish cofee (a bit costly but worth it for a treat). Bathroom showers very tight and hard to get in and out. Bedroom nice and comfortable. Having snacks and cocktails at the lobby bar is a must when you get home from a night on the town. Get the toasties. They're awesome.

This is our third stay at the Merrion. We love the location, close to St. Stephan's Green, and a short walk to Trinity College. The breakfast is amazing. There is a pool for children 12 and over. The door man and front desk were quick to help with taxis, and anything else we needed. We had 2 triple connecting rooms... More

2 days in Dublin at the Merrion. Upon arrival we went to the spa until our room was ready. The spa staff was very accommodating. We had dinner at the restaurant - great fish and chips. The room was nice, but we should have upgraded to the lovely garden view. We were within a 10 minute walk of the shops... More

All employees were so genuinely pleased to help you including the booking telephone staff, the doormen, restaurant teams, bar staff , housekeeping and reception.

Without the best the best service based hotel I have stayed in. It seems this hotel has got back to the classic days of people always there ... there wasn't a time when I was in any of the public parts of the hotel and didn't see a member of staff.

This hotel is the finest in Dublin. The building is beautiful and furnished with style. The staff are exceptional and the location perfect for most of Dublin's main attractions. The pool is large, indoors and heated (important in a country with little sunshine even in Summer). The rooms are all very nice, but it is worth stretching to a suite... More

We visited Dublin in March 2015. It was a delightful city. This hotel was wonderful. The front desk was most friendly, the room was spacious and bigger than expected given our experience with European hotels. The bed was extremely comfortable, everything was top notch. If we return to Dublin, we will most definitely stay at this excellent facility. We had... More

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed strong, in any city or country. Many 5 star hotels have a great physical plant - great lobby, wonderful rooms, etc and The Merrion is no exception in this regard. What sets this hotel apart is its location and staff. I thought the location was perfect. Close to everything you... More

Superb hotel, great Central location and a very nice outside area during the 5 days of sun we were lucky to have experienced in Ireland at the time.
