We had been dropped off there by a friend while we waited for the house we had rented to come available...

The Merriman Hotel has a major presence in Kinvara and although I have not stayed there I have eaten there a number of times. Recently re-opened under new management and it looks great...inside and out. The bar area is bright and spacious and has many comfortable seating areas. Live music adds to the ambiance and the food choices are broad,...

Good old fashioned hotel with characteristic thatched roof. Live music in the bar in the evening. Very simple check in and possible late check out sometimes. Good location by the main road. Lots of parking space in the inner yard.

A comfortable hotel situated centrally in Kinvara. The facilities where clean and the wifi was good. The bar/restaurant serves great food and cold beer and is a good place to relax in the evening after a big day of sightseeing. The staff were extremely helpful and offered any advice needed to ensure that I got the most out of my...

30 of us travelled down to stay in kinvara. Beautiful little town and hotel. So convenient for our hike in the Burren and lively pubs for nighttime. We all ate in the bar that evening and standard of food was high. Only complaint was lack of hot water in the showers which may have been down to us all checking...

Just stayed at the Merriman, excellent Hotel, very central to walk all round the Bay and the Main Street. We have been all over Ireland, I can honestly say this is the best breakfast ever, even better the 5star cruises we have been on. So much choice, and the chef came out to ask if he could cook something else....

Stayed here on a voucher deal & was made feel very welcome which isn't always the case! Our room was spacious, beds were really comfy, bathroom had a bath & power shower overhead. The place was clean & staff were friendly. We enjoyed it. WiFi not great in bedrooms. Breakfast was OK.

This was an excellent location to start or end your adventure around "The Burren" The hotel is just behind the sea view so pleasant walk, along the waters edge. The hotel was busy the night we were there but that was due to a weekend fiesta. Room was good, breakfast was good. We didn't eat in the restaurant as reception...

This was a hotel booked as part of a bicycle tour. When we arrived there were many people in the pub very involved in a hurling match on the TV. We could hear them after we got to our room. It was pretty funny actually. They cleared out and it got pretty quiet. The room was clean, the bed was...
