HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 April 2017

I've been fortunate to stay in some beautiful hotels in my life - The Jumeriah, The Peninsula in Hong Kong and many others - but I don't think I have ever loved a hotel more than The Merrion. First of all, the staff is truly exceptional across the board - every person you encounter is kind, warm, hospitable and helpful....

This remains my favourite hotel in Dublin. The rooms are very restful, the staff kind and helpful and the food in the Cellar Restaurant and the Cellar Bar is fantastic. A lovely pint of Guinness too!!!

You are stepping into a piece of Irish history when you enter the hotel. The entrance lobby with liveried staff is most welcoming. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The Merrion is just a few steps away from the heart of Dublin where you will find many excellent restaurants, bars and other attractions. The city tour buses pass by the...

We have just spent the most fabulous weekend in The Merrion Hotel, it was quite simply stunning. The hotel is sheer perfection from the staff to the rooms to the location.

We recently spent 3 nights at the Merrion in Dublin. The hotel is excellently located, within walking distance of Trinity College, the major shopping district and Temple Bar. This is an older property, but very well-maintained and updated. Our room, a superior king, was a graciously sized corner room with a comfortable sitting area and large, marble bath. The bed...

3 nights with my wife for a work related conference and very well done by the Merrion. Old style elegance with modern touches and a lovely ground floor courtyard and basement pool. The main house lounges are amazing, the art excellent and the service almost without fault. Only 2 slight glitches - no shampoo in shower in spa and the...
