Everything about this hotel is superlative. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are lovely, the beds comfortable and the amenities plentiful. We celebrated our 48 th wedding anniversary here and room service provided us with a beautifully set trolley with cheeses and breads to go with a bottle of French rose. The hotel is well situated within...

We returned again this year (hope we can make it an annual thing going forward!!). We were not let down. We had such a lovely stay last year and dined in Guilbauds and hoped we hadn't built it up too much to be a disappointment this time and indeed it lived up to our expectations. We used the pool area...

The Merrion has it all...large rooms in a historic hotel but with all modern amenities, along with an incredibly attentive staff. It also has the biggie: location location location. Within a block there was every pub and fish and chips restaurant you could ever want, plus every other ethnic spot along with a huge shopping area. We'll be back.

The Merrion was a beautifully kept, well-priced hotel conveniently located in the heart of Dublin. The room was light, well-furnished with king sized bed, and marble bath. The Cellar restaurant was a great dining option, as well as where a generous breakfast was served. And the indoor pool looked lovely, although we didn't use it. The service was top notch,...

The Merrion lives up to all of its reviews. The rooms are luxurious and immaculate. The staff goes out of their way to anticipate your needs. The two bars are great. Impeccable service with a smile.

Although the dining room for afternoon tea is lively the room we stayed in was average. We got a room at the end of a long corridor with no view.

Luxury and relaxation exudes the Merrion. Excellent staff with 5 star treatment minus pretence. Room comfort is second to none. A must are cocktails in the bar and a drawing room. We went in summer and am excite to hopefully return in winter. Love this hotel.
