This is a very nice hotel, in a good location, I booked the lowest price room and it was fine, except all the hotel doors would bank each time someone left there room. Maybe I would look around at other hotels next time.

Amazing, super friendly hotel, fantastic location. The staff were so lovely, full of smiles and coudn't do enough for us. The hotel was immaculate in every way. Lots of different areas to relax with family and friends including a courtyard garden. The only thing that was slightly annoying was that it was too hot in Club 23 cocktail bar as...

We were originally booked to stay in the main house and were very disappointed in having our room in the Garden wing. WITH THAT SAID we were so very satisfied with our stay there. They were very apologetic for the mix up and lovely about it. We ended up with a very spacious room in the garden wing- much bigger...

Hubby had a trip with work and we were booked in the Merrion. Upon entering this hotel your first reaction is 'wow'. Its truly an amazing hotel.

If you desire classic elegance, this hotel rates 10. Everything is best in its class: staff, amenities, location, landscaping, and overall professionalism. It is within walking distance to center city, but far enough to give you a quiet respite from activity and an absolutely restful night of sleep.

Through the door into a different world where you are made feel king. Fabulous genuine staff. Old world feel of the place. Time slows down and you get to relax. What a fantastic place. Found it a little odd going to the basement for breakfast... a fleeting speed wobble, when I sat down for the eggs benedict!

The Merrion Hotel has to be the most elegant of all Dublin's offerings. Within walking distance of shops, galleries, museums and Stephen's Green and yet quiet and unshowy. The rooms (especially in the main building) are comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities (a must in my opinion) and free WiFi. When the weather is good make use of the...

Stayed a few days in Dublin while visiting ireland. My wife chose the Merrion hotel. GREAT choice! Well located, within walking distance of everything. Incomparable service. Memorable breakfasts. Huge room. Fireplaces in the sitting areas. Antique furnishings in many areas (comfy). Very helpful staff. Best hotel bed ever!! I want to take it home with me! Don't miss the Merrion!
