Absolutely fantastic stay at the Merrion. Despite booking the 'Sterling Saver' - a great deal on their website under Rates and Reservations - we were never afforded anything but first class service. From the Concierge, to Reception and the Restaurant, this is a fine example of 5 star luxury.

Cannot praise highly enough and would recommend to anyone visting Dublin; it's location (just 100 yards from St Stephens Green) is fantastic for all sightseeing.

My wife and me came first time to Irland from Finland. I was a little bit worried about, how we will manage. When we came to your hotel all the worries were gone. We got very friendly wellcome. A friendly girl guided us to our room and told everything we needed about the hotel. The persons in reception liked to give us all the information about Dublin we needed. Especially we enjoyed the relaxed and quiet atmosphere in your hotel. We recommend your hotel to everybody, who likes luxury and especilly for them, who travel first time in their life to Ireland.

The Merrion Hotel in Dublin is one of my favourite hotels in the world! Complete luxury in the heart of Dublin City. Although right in the centre you feel transported to a world away from modern life where you can really relax and feel special. You can do as little or as much as you like.
Staff are fabulous, very kind, friendly, efficient and helpful. Food is lovely, modern Ireland at it's best, marrying traditional with international.
Rooms and suites in the main house are beautiful. Suites in the garden wing also are. Rooms in the garden wing least attractive.

I found the hotel Merrion in Dublin on line and booked online and since I was traveling with my 21 year old son, I booked a family plan with 2 rooms which included daily Irish breakfast. The hotel had a spa and a pub; but what I enjoyed most was the high tea every afternoon. The staff are wonderfully efficient and super friendly; the food was top notch, the linens and the furnishings were the best and the bathrooms with robes and slippers was fabulous.

From upon arrival to departure the standard of service and hospitality was second to none.Friendly and professional staff who made you feel welcome and made our stay a "home from home" experience.
Our room was a beautiful traditional room,with a stunning marble 4 piece(stand-alone shower,which is always nice)bathroom.Mini-bar was fully stocked and everything from the linen.matress,furniture,carpets was all of the highest standard and pristine.The view from our room was over the fantastic manicured gardens and was uplifting to say the least.
The Merrion has a wonder collection of art in it's homely reception and public areas.The Drawing Room with it's peat-burning fires and warmth was so cosy and homely that it was hard to drag yourself away to go out and explore the city itself...it really is THAT good!
We ate several times in the hotel.breakfast was a fantastic array of fresh fruit,sumptious hot choice menu,and anything you could wish for to make your mouth water and set you up for the day ahead.We also has an evening meal in the Cellar Restaurant and again,the food,service and price were all excellent.
The hotel itself is situation only 2 minutes walk from the thriving hustle and bustle of St Stephens green and the main thoroughfare of Graftons Street,where all the chic shops and boutiques are,yet the street on which the hotel is situated is like a calming oasis,..quiet,nearly traffic-free and safe.
Having experienced other so-called "5 star" hotels and been let down or disappointed each time,I can honestly say that The Merrion truely deserves every one of its 5 stars and can't wait to return asap.
