Recently had a 5 night stay at the Merrion, the third time I have stayed there. Don't think that I would ever consider staying anywhere else in Dublin. From the moment you arrive, bags collected, pleasant check in, drinks in the bar and drawing rooms and through to check out, the staff are absolutely excellent.
Despite being 5 star there is no feeling of stuffiness that one sometimes encounters, you are made to feel at home and nothing is too much trouble. Had a lovely room overlooking the garden which was very nice.
Hotel location is great in a quiet spot but only a short walk to the centre and there are several very good testaurants less than 5 mins walk away.
We decided to splash out for our first time in the Patrick Guilbaud restaurant, which defintely needs a reservation due to popularity. It is expensive but well worth the cost and it was definitely a meal and experience to remember.
If you don't wish to have breakfast at the hotel then I can recommend Foley's just around the corner which is very good value and quality.
Already looking forward to my next stay at the Merrion.

My partner and I stayed here for just one night. We so enjoyed our stay. The staff were so helpful and friendly.
Our room was so comfortable. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast.
Hope to return soon - perhaps before Christmas.

On our way from Paris, we stopped in Dublin for a 3 day visit--our first trip ever to Ireland. We found the Merrion Hotel from other visitors that went there and posted their comments on Trip Advisor. We made the right choice. This hotel is perfect, everyone who works there is pleasant, helpful and makes you feel like a million dollars. The rooms are spacious, clean completely new. The concierge gave us suggestions prior to our arrival which helped us plan daily trips. Oh, and the spa-had a Balinese massage and swam in the most beautiful pool. Even my 16 year old daughter forgot about shopping for a moment to enjoy the spa! We recommend the hotel and will return there in the future.

From the staff, to the scrumptious food, the level of detail is superb. Nothing was too much trouble and all the small touches dropped by so many other hotels can be found from the sewing kit, umbrella for the rain (an essential in Ireland), complimentary newspaper hanging outside your bedroom door. Great city centre location but 2 streets away from the noise and bustle.

Room Tip: Ask to over look the gardens
