We thought it was going to be too warm with no AC, but it was perfect. This is a quaint little place in a quaint little town. Folks in the Inn and Pub were helpful and friendly. Food was OK. Some great little shops just a brief walk down the street.

These guys make Basil Faulty look like a customer service genius. Room filthy, dead flies on window. Rude staff. Confusion over booking and price via booking.com. I felt like a third class citizen. Avoid at all costs.

I have stayed in the Merriman a number of times as a regular Kinvara visitor. The booking and reception staff are friendly and professional and the rooms are clean and well priced. I ate there for the first time on my most recent trip and they need to up their game in the food area. Pasta from the children's menu... More

Honestly this is the first review I've ever written and it's because this place was just so disappointing that I feel like I need to save some people from wasting their money here. We arrived as a group of 5 to the restaurant side of the hotel. The service was poor, drinks were slammed on the table, and the waitresses... More

Stayed with husband and two teenage kids. The hotel is situated in a quaint and beautiful location. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean. Dinner was really nice and served quickly. Breakfast was excellent. I personally couldn't fault this hotel.

Looks like it has potential from the outside but inside the room and the bathroom in particular are very tired. Lots of black all around the bath sealant and tiles. Wouldn't say that the rooms are not being cleaned, just tired and old. Double bed was 2 very uneven and lumpy singles pushed together. Couldn't connect to wifi and were... More

A stop off on our way to Galway. Lovely food. Great staff but the best thing of all was the most amazing Tartar Sauce I have ever tasted I must see can I get the recipe.

Recently while going to Ailwee Cave and Bird Show we were passing through Kinvara around lunchtime and needed a break. We went into the Tatched Bar in the Merriman Hotel for lunch. There were 5 adults, a child and an infant and we had a lovely lunch from bacon and cabbage to a main course chowder at a very reasonable... More
