Stayed here while visiting a friend recently, suited all my needs perfectly. Reception staff were brilliant from the outset and catered for everything with a smile. Bed was extremely comfortable and the room was warm enough without being too warm. Didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on that. Will be returning..

Everyone we asked said the Merrion is one of the 2 best Hotels in Dublin, and I agree. Greeted by the doorman in top-hat, inside the door to your right is a bellman operating a computer terminal, servicing patron requests and inquiries. You are greeted in the Lobby by a host of employees, all anxious to serve. Everything about the...

Excellent hotel, superb experience. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. One of the best hotels I have stayed in. If ever you are in Dublin, a dinner at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is a MUST. It is Ireland’s only Two Star Michelin restaurant. The Cellar Bar is also an excellent venue.

The Merrion is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. The room and facilities were impeccably clean, the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, the service was excellent, and the location was great. The hotel was seriously one of the best parts of Dublin. I don't think I've ever experienced such perfect service in a hotel. Wifi...

Fantastic and beautiful hotel. Everything you would need from a 5 star hotel. Large and clean rooms. Bar is great as well as the pool area. Breakfast is medium so try find a nice place nearby and probably much cheaper.

It's difficult to find fault with this hotel as we were so happy with it. We received a warm welcome when getting out of the taxi and after a quick check in process were escorted to our room. The room is lovely, nice and big and spotlessly clean as you would expect from this sort of hotel. Staff were all...

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. Worth every penny, would definitely stay again. The location is perfect, Grafton St and Temple Bar is within walking distance and surrounded by great bars and restaurants. The hotel's own Cellar Bar is also great.

We recently stayed at the Merrion to celebrate a special anniversary and from the moment we arrived that was exactly how we felt. The facilities and staff are excellent and the quality of service was amazing. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an oasis in the centre of the city.

A true five star hotel,impeccably clean and very friendly and helpful staff. Some rooms have unpleasant and uninteresting views so should be cheaper. There is a lack of lobby sitting area as Afternoon Tea customers avail of these. Service in the Cellar reataurant is too quick .
