Arrived back into Dublin from a luxury holiday in Mauritius, and had booked a night in the Merrion to round things off before facing back into reality! It really is an exceptional hotel, and this time it again exceeded expectations. Arriving tired after an overnight trip, I was greeted with a really warm and genuine welcome as a returning guest,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

I've been fortunate to stay in some beautiful hotels in my life - The Jumeriah, The Peninsula in Hong Kong and many others - but I don't think I have ever loved a hotel more than The Merrion. First of all, the staff is truly exceptional across the board - every person you encounter is kind, warm, hospitable and helpful....

From bottom to top, an very polished and elegant hotel. The room was beautiful and comfortable, with every amenity. The service is unobtrusive, but always available. Concierge service was always spot on with recommendations for dining. My wife also loved the spa. I cannot imagine a better experience than what we had here during our trip to Dublin.

Simply put this is a mediocre City hotel and is not the truly great hotel is aspires to be. We stayed as a couple earlier recently for a night. The whole hotel seems to lack management and whilst the staff are very friendly, it falls way short of what they seem to be trying to achieve. Check in is at...

The ultimate 5 star treatment. Nothing bad to say. Facilities were exceptional, staff were of the highest standard. Everything one would expect from a 5 star establishment. Excellent location too, minutes walk from Dublin's Grafton street and south side CBD.

Five Star means Five Star in this excellent establishment. Definitely the best hotel I've ever stayed in; staff are polite, knowledgeable, courteous and plentiful. Ambiance is serene, new garden is fantastic. Our room was something to behold. Minor issues were dealt with swiftly, I have difficulty finding any faults.

I highly recommend this lovely hotel for your stay in Dublin. The location is ideal and the service and accommodations superb.
