This was our first trip to Dublin. The Merrion was an excellent choice. We stayed five nights. Everything was great. The hotel was beautiful, staff were extremely helpful & friendly. We ate twice in the restaurants and had fantastic meals. Best hamburger ever! We were there when Bruce Springsteen played in Dublin & stayed at the Merrion. That was a... More

This was by far the nicest hotel we visited on our recent trip to Ireland from the US. I am always amazed at how much better Europeans can do hospitality and this hotel was worth it. While they have an international staff, the service is top notch and anticipatory. The people genuinely seemed happy and friendly to us on all... More

One of the best hotels I have had the pleasure to stay in. 5 minutes walk to Grafton Street and 30 minutes walk to Aviva Stadium. Service and food are of excellent quality, not to mention staff who couldn't be more helpful.

Quite simply our stay was a joy from start to finish, every member of staff from the concierge on arrival to the concierge on departure was warm polite and professional, each with their own personal touch.

Such a very special place, the very best of Dublin. I wouldn't stay anywhere else, so comfortable and luxurious, nothing is too much trouble. Excellent service as always. I'm missing my breakfast in bed.

Very professional, attentive, 5-star staff. Up to date facilities with just a touch of "olde". Excellent restaurants on site. Walking distance to several museums and other sites. Multiple choices for tea, snacks, drinks or group conversations in the lounges and bars, and the garden when it reopens. We were not able to try all four of the on-site dining options,... More

We had a wonderful stay at the historic Merrion in the original building. Through our LHW membership we were upgraded to the The Lord Monck Suite.

I love staying at the Merrion. The hotel is easily the best in Dublin and the service is impeccable. Refurbishments are underway and it will be wonderful when they are finished. I am always welcomed when I return and enjoyed a wonderful swim in the pool before a great dinner at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud.
