This was an amazing hotel in Dublin. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The rooms are classic in their design and furnishings. I can't describe exactly why I loved my stay here so much but I had a feeling that I was home. Great experience.

The four nights we spent at the Merrion Hotel in late December 2012 were nothing short of excellent. The location, price, old Dublin feel, and modern conveniences came together to create the perfect experience. The people and service were great (very large staff). The multiple bars and restaurants provided the full set of options. And the afternoon tea, while difficult to get a reservation, was a perfect touch. And the location adjacent to St Stephen's Green was close enough to all shopping, museums, and attractions without feeling like you were in the "tourists".

Stayed last week for one night on €270 five star steal. Makes it within reach of us ordinary mortals. Delighted I got to see Christmas decorations in hotel, lovely time of year to stay. Had a pre dinner cocktail included in package, wow it was fab! Have no complaints, always find staff very professional and courteous. Everyone should try and stay at least one night here in their lifetime. It is my ambition that when all my children have grown up and flown the nest, I intend to stay over the Christmas period. Thanks for another lovely visit.

I had the tremendous pleasure to stay at The Merion Hotel for one week. It is the best hotel experience I have ever had. The service at the hotel can simply be described as perfect. The staff did absolutely everything they could to make the stay as good as one could wish. The room I stayed at was spacious, facing the beautiful garden. The location of the hotel is centrally within walking distance of more places of interest, and the restaurant at the Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud offers you outstanding classic French cuisine.
We will definitely visit Dublin within soon - if not for other reasons, then - to stay at this fantastic hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden are wonderful - look for a bright room.

Stayed at The Merrion for three nights between Xmas and New Year. This is our third visit and, again, didn't disappoint. Wonderful friendly service. The afternoon tea in front of the fire is a must but book in advance. The staff couldn't do enough to assist and make our stay comfortable.Tried the Cellar Restaurant on the first night and enjoyed a lovely dinner with great service.

We couldn't recommend The Merrion highly enough and looking forward to a return in the near future.

Room Tip: If possible book a superior or deluxe room

We had a wonderful Christmas 2011 at the Merrion, everything were amazing. Santa came to see all the kids in the hotel and gave them presents. You feel warmth inn the hotel, the staff were amazing, the room service was great. We had Christmas dinner there and it was so good. We wish we went there Christmas 2012 but we decided to have it at the four seasons and we were dissoaponted about the service and some staff there this time. Merrion hotel is great place for good service...
