5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Dublin. My third time staying in The Merrion did not fail to match my previous experiences. The ideal place to escape from the hum drum of busy modern life, this hotel is an oasis of luxurious tranquility right in the heart of Dublin. Staff are welcoming and friendly without being in the least bit intrusive. The food is wonderful and the wine list is a temptation too hard to resist! Can't wait for my next visit!

Had a really lovely stay , great hotel . Staff very helpful. Spa so relaxing and good atmosphere . Room lovely view over garden . Breakfast was expensive but in great room . Location excellent , easy walk into Dublin centerStaff also parked car ,which was a bonus .

The Merrion from we entered the doors was a luxurious relaxing experience. Taking advantage of a break in Chemo for my husband our family sent us for a night here, they couldn't have chosen better. The staff were so attentive we felt our comfort was their primary concern. The room was spacious, bed comfortable, with the best pillows I ever experienced in a hotel! The food was excellent, again nothing was too much trouble. It was a fabulous experience from start to finish, one we hope to repeat later this year.

No, seriously, this is the best hotel ever. From door staff to concierge to room service to housekeeping. This is literally the best hotel I have ever stayed in. We needed dinner reservations and the concierge scored. We needed recommendations for day trips and they scored again. I will come back again and again.

From arrival and being upgraded to a suite, to quality of the room itself, to skills of the cocktail bartender everything was top drawer. A quality hotel and worth the money (and excellent value when compared to hotels of similar standard in London and Paris). 5*

The staff made the experience amazing - very helpful, nothing was a problem. The food at both the cellar bar and garden restaurants were top rate - again the staff were amazing - the Spa and the services were fabulous and the staff checking us in were great - it was an amazing stay for my family. I would recommend it highly.

My daughter and I stayed at the Merrion last week for a long weekend in Dublin. The hotel was absolutely lovely. We arrived very early in the morning to find our room ready and waiting for us, amazing! The room was large and lovely. The concierge was so helpful, both prior to our stay and during, helping us with restaurant reservations and time changes to existing plans. Tea at the Merrion is not to be missed, just delicious and cozy by the fireplace. The location is perfect to walk everywhere in the city. Thank you to the welcoming and helpful staff, if I ever return to Dublin I would stay nowhere else.

Fantastic experience with our family of 8 including toddler twins. The Merrion went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs. Wonderful location in Dublin, many restaurants, pubs and shopping within walking distance. We would definitely return.

A fantastic weekend break, everything absolutely perfect! Best to book at least four weeks in advance. The Garden Room restaurant is excellent, less formal but has an extensive menu to suit all tastes.

This hotel has a terrific reputation and we called in - unfortunately in tourist downbeat gear which seemed not to gain staff approval! However we were served excellent Earl Grey and cakes while the harpist played - elegant rooms and furnishings - a treat!
