We stayed here for 6 nights and found the service absolutely flawless. Our room was a recently refurbished king room in the main house, which exuded a refined country feeling. From the lovely painted furniture to the high quality linens to the fresh flowers, it was as if you were staying at a private manor and not a hotel in... More

The hotel is a superb one-of-a-kind experience, with a fantastic art collection (check out the works by Lavery and also the James Joyce sculpture / fountain in the garden). The cellar bar is actually an old wine cellar from the late 1700's. The linens are great, bathrooms wonderful - every detail - towel warmers, etc. But the staff is what... More

This is the very best hotel in Dublin and genuinely ranks among the top hotels of the world. Everything, from service to decor, from location to friendliness, from food to cleanliness, is really exceptional.

The Merrion is the star of Dublin. Friendly staff, immaculate rooms, great location. Taste of classic Ireland with all of the modern conveniences. I wish there was a Merrion in every city I travel too.

The Merrion is an elegant hotel within walking distance of many sights (or a short drive). Staff is courteous and pleasant. The rooms and common areas could use some updating to really bring this hotel up to modern standards. There was some construction working taking place during our stay, but it did not impact us at all.

The Merrion Hotel provides guests with spacious and comfortable rooms and a great location in Dublin within walking distance of Trinity College. The staff and service in The Cellar Restaurant were good. The lobby and public areas were formal and yet inviting for a cup of tea and pastries. Definitely a great choice for a visit to Dublin. ☘
