Conveniently located in the city center, friendly staff. Rooms in the Garden wing ok and relatively quiet. Our room was still not avaiable at 4pm... Breakfast buffet style in the basement - not very appealing. Overall ok, but nothing exciting.

My wife and I stayed in the "Garden Wing" in an extremely comfortable room that came with a wonderfully comfortable King size bed. The staff were all very friendly and anxious to ensure are needs were catered to. This is the place to stay in Dublin - highly recommended.

A wonderful experience - professional staff - amazing attention to detail - a visit to remember ! As this was a wedding anniversary "treat" , we were pleasantly surprised to find a welcome plate of decorated mini muffins in our room with a message from the Manager.

I stayed here for a weekend with my mother as a birthday celebration and we just loved our stay at The Merrion. Location wise, it is around a 10 minute walk to the city centre and is located on a quiet street just opposite the stunning goverment buildings. There are lovely restaurants and bars nearby which are much more quiet... More

Elegant common and bedrooms. Service is impeccable and lightning fast. The spa is a treasure with expert therapists and a gorgeous pool. Our room is most comfortable, great bed, and lovely bedding. The best hotel we've stayed at in Europe.

We really enjoyed this hotel. It should really be rated Five Star Plus. It is what other hotels should aim to be. When we enter the hotel, we are not only greeted by each doorman and concierge, but we are addressed by our proper names with smiles on their faces. You really feel as if they are glad to see...
