The whole experience from the moment we arrived to our departure was amazing. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. My son's wedding took place in the hotel and the attention to detail was incredible. Even though the numbers were small due to Covid restrictions we had a fantastic time.

Hotel's Favorite
Couldn't fault the Merrion at all, from extra safety precautions, to the spa, to the food - everything was wonderful. Was so lovely to spend a few days relaxing. As we're from Dublin and couldn't leave the county, we were worried that we wouldn't get into that 'holiday mode' but the Merrion had us relaxed the second we walked in the door. Staff so friendly and helpful, room was gorgeous and exceptionally clean. Amazing!

Amazing stay, and private dining room for small group allowed me as a vulnerable person feel safe! This place really is worth a stay! Treat yourself. The room I had is by far the nicest room I've ever stayed in, and it was clean and felt perfectly safe for travel during Covid-Time! Dorothy and Peter McCann, and Sean the waiter were the shining stars of my stay: thank you all!

On approaching the hotel , you know that you will be well looked after. The staff are friendly and so professional. All the measures were discreetly in place. The Merrion always looks fabulous but even more so at this time of year. Elegantly decorated. On leaving we always look forward to return visit.
