We stay frequently at four seasons and Ritz Carlton but the welcome and attention to detail is extraordinary. Nothing is too much trouble. Numerous attentive multinational staff all warm and friendly. Superb rooms. We stayed in the Lord monck suite. Expensive but hard to beat anywhere. Friendly public rooms and fireplaces with real wood Well done

Each and every member of the team are true ambassadors for this lovely hotel. There was a Croatian waiter who entertained a baby and several children at breakfast while mom and dad quaffed their eggs. The room attendants were charming and smiling. The concierge assisted all, with charm and wit. As for the Front desk staff they were so professional...

...that is if you lean towards boutique, private, charming, and bespoke. If you like larger, more modern, or corporate hotels with bigger facilities, this is not for you. The Westbury is the other hotel in Dublin that I think lives in the same tier as The Merrion, but we were not as impressed. Once you get past the private entrance...

Had an elegant lunch with my wife at the Merrion hotel / restaurant which was delicious but enjoyed our duck salad and soup, sandwich, and dessert dish. The Victorian period furnishings are a time turner for this wonderful era. Enjoy the tea and sandwiches!

I have been staying at the Merrion Hotel for more than ten years while in Dublin for business and occasionally for touring. The staff is outstanding. No one misses a beat in extending courtesy and offering service. The hotel is quiet and comfortable while well located in central Dublin. Food and beverage is top quality.

Thoroughly enjoyed a recent trip to the Merrion, The Staff are excellent, and always make you feel welcome and valued. Rooms are very luxurious and relaxing. There is a very calm atmosphere which is wonderful after a busy day. Great for a business or a relaxing few days

The Merrion is a mix of old (the place where Wellington was born) with superb rooms in the ground floor which are used as the bar, the living room, and the classic of the rooms.
