Returned from a wonderful weekend at The Merrion. Stayed on Friday and Saturday night. Arrived just after lunchtime on Friday. Our car and bags were whisked away and we were quickly checked in by the friendly and welcoming reception staff. We decided to have a glass of wine and a coffee at The Cocktail Bar before heading to our room....

A much anticipated return visit to the Merrion and, I'm happy to report, it only gets better! A pretty much flawless performance right across the Board. We enjoy the tasteful, elegant, relaxed atmosphere, and the quiet efficiency in the service, along with the natural warmth that you seem to find so prevalent in Ireland. With so many pretenders to five-star...

Historical building restored to a magical level. Service is impeccable and every aspect of our stay was perfect. World Class service from the moment you arrive until Emily brings you breakfast in the morning... the entire experience was fantastic. Cellar Bar has a great old school feel and a warm, welcome demeanor.

Excellent hotel, great city, with great bars and restaurants within 5 minutes walk of hotel. no need to venture as far as temple bar for a night out. Merrion Square and the park are on the doorstep, and a walk to the canal/marina area is worth a walk. Dublin Zoo also well worth a trip
