Lots of history here and nothing but the highest quality in service and accommodations. Great location. Easily one of the finest places to stay in Dublin. Terrific for hosting business groups. Great for couples on a romantic getaway, too.

The location is perfect for our business and social needs with banking, restaurants, cafes and shops...

We had a wonderful but brief stay at the Merrion. Our plane got in very early and they went out of their way to accommodate us by getting us into a room ahead of schedule. The staff was so very friendly. Our room was large and beautiful. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was amazing (great water pressure)....

Beautiful hotel, great service, very large rooms (especially for Ireland). We had a very early flight arrival and they gave us early check in at 6:30 am. They normally do include free breakfast with the room and we were told on the phone that breakfast was included but then a short while later the front desk called and said we...

My usual January trip to my favorite Dublin hotel. Major works underway in the garden as they create a new restaurant and spa in a new building. I don't think there are plans for guest rooms in that wing. This was on-going my last stay but really very intensive now. There is definitely some noise that can be heard periodically...

The drawing rooms are very stylish and calm. The food was excellent and lots of exquisite teas to choose from. We were served by Rhianna (spelling might...

This is a long overdue review and one that I hope will help those looking for the perfect hotel in Dublin. In October 2016, we took 41 people to the Dublin Theatre Festival. We booked 26 rooms for 8 days at the Merrion. After the rave comments from our folks, I can say that we had HANDS DOWN the most...

Brilliant hotel, with touches of class throughout. check-in can be annoying with the eastern European faux Dublin accent, complete with Ts ending in an S, running through the prepared script of how ones journey was. Wine list is all French - this is presumably to try and up-posh itself, since Yanks will think French is fancy. New World can also...
