What a fantastic hotel! Everything about our experience was five star from start to finish. Beautiful accommodation, fantastic food and truly accommodating staff who all went out of their way to ensure that our stay was pleasant. Would gladly make a return visit!

We got married in Jan 2015, at the Merrion which was a magical day and our family and friend had an amazing time. From that saying My husband and I go back every year for one night. This hotel is amazing and it really feel like christmas, when you walk in. It is one of the best hotel that I have stayed in, the service is great. Staff are very welcoming and rooms are super nice. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Top-class hotel. Very comfortable establishment with excellent service. Everything that you would expect from a 5-star hotel. There is a most enjoyable art collection on display too. The swimming pool is also of a high standard. We look forward to returning.

Beautiful hotel full of great art, cozy and lovely layout. In a great area for walking and enjoying Dublin. I arrived at 9 am and they let me check in early which was really gracious. The spa treatments were excellent and the restaurant was very, very good. Staff are so helpful and accommodating. I will stay here again and again.

We got married here on New Year’s Eve. Everyone of my 80 guests felt thoroughly spoilt. From The amazing Conor Shawwho organized the whole day to the beautiful staff who were so helpful and friendly. The guys on the door make you feel so special before you set foot in the door. We have also had food at the bar at no 23 which was also just super and the new garden terrace restaurant is definitely our new go to place in Dublin. I could not recommend this hotel enough!!

Our favorite hotel in the world and justly so. Everything is first rate and everyone strives to please and take care of your every need. The drawing rooms with their wonderful fireplaces make the atmosphere unique and peaceful when just out the front door lies all the charms of Dublin. A must stay venue that is special!

Old world charm and luxury with exceptional service standards. A must for anyone looking for an extraordinary retreat int eh heart of Dublin City. I would highly recommend a stay in the 'old house'. Great for business, couples and family!

One of the most welcoming , comfortable and relaxing city centre hotels I have ever stayed in . Would strongly recommend and return in a heartbeat . Care and attention to detail outstanding and restaurant excellent .
