The Merrion Hotel is absolutely amazing, the staff are excellent and the facilities are just as excellent. Stayed here for a few days and couldn't recommend it enough if you are looking for somewhere luxurious in Dublin City.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Staff were amazing from the moment we walked up to the front steps. Really enjoyed our room - big dressing gowns waiting for us and a huge cosy bed. Afternoon tea was a lovely experience too. Will have to come back to try the spa!

EXcellent service and attentio to detail
The whole experience from the moment we arrived to our departure was amazing. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. My son's wedding took place in the hotel and the attention to detail was incredible. Even though the numbers were small due to Covid restrictions we had a fantastic time.

Amazing Stay!
Couldn't fault the Merrion at all, from extra safety precautions, to the spa, to the food - everything was wonderful. Was so lovely to spend a few days relaxing. As we're from Dublin and couldn't leave the county, we were worried that we wouldn't get into that 'holiday mode' but the Merrion had us relaxed the second we walked in the door. Staff so friendly and helpful, room was gorgeous and exceptionally clean. Amazing!

Our favorite Dublin retreat
This was our 4th stay at The Merrion and it never disappoints and always leaves us amazed at the experience and the world class level of service. It is so nice to be greeted by the familiar faces of Brian and the others at the door. The front desk staff are outstanding and always helpful. You are treated like family. The rooms are breathtaking, especially the suites in the historic section. The gifts in the rooms-gourmet Merrion chocolates, wine occasionally, water, etc are fantastic. The recent renovations in the back are beautiful. The breakfast buffet is remarkable and a daily highlight. The gardens are an oasis amid the bustle of the city. The audio art tour of the Merrion collection is a don’t miss. The sole on my shoe detached during a day of walking and Brian personally took them to a cobbler for repair. That is the level of 5 star service at the Merrion. I have recommended this hotel to many friends and colleagues and all have been just as impressed. You need to treat yourself to a stay at The Merrion if in Dublin. We will be back again soon.

"Top notch, best of the best!"
I had the pleasure of staying at The Merrion from October 11-14. I have never had a more enjoyable experience at a hotel ever before. Right from when you arrive, you notice the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff. The attention to detail (small details), never goes unnoticed. The beauty, serenity are unmatched, and the cleanliness are of the highest level. This is truly a 5 star hotel of impeccable standards, unfortunately I was only here for a brief long weekend stay. This now is the new barometer for future hotels, but when I’m back in Dublin... I will only stay at The Merrion!

We never do, and never will, stay anywhere else in Dublin
Having been fortunate to stay at some special hotels, we wondered: could the Merrion live up to our memories from prior trips years ago? We needn’t have worried. I guess the best way to convey our experience is to say that the hotel anticipates one’s every need. The service is friendly, confident and polished. The property is well-maintained, feeling both classic and contemporary. One is made to feel so welcome. We’ve never considered staying elsewhere in Dublin, and it’s hard to imagine we ever will.

Perfect stay for my 40th Birthday!
Stayed here for my 40th. We had a meal booked at another location so we only had soup and snacks in this hotel but they were beautiful.

The staff are very friendly and the treatment we got from the second we left our car and throughout our stay was amazing. Everyone was so friendly.

The room was perfect and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in.

The parking was €25 but that was no problem, especially for Dublin as parking prices are expensive.

I will 100% be returning for another visit and I’m looking forward to it.

"A luxury escape within Dublin"
Everything about The Merrion was first class upon arrival. Front desk, concierge, restaurant, and everyone we encountered at The Merrion were very friendly and extremely helpful. Service was top notch.

The room was one of the finest rooms I've ever stayed in with all the amenities you would need. It was the most comfortable bed we had while staying in Ireland for a week.

Dublin can be very busy city but once you step foot into The Merrion you are transported to a private retreat. We were able to walk to every stop we planned on making in Dublin: Temple Bar area, Trinity College, Guinness, and St. Stephen's Green.
