I am a bit late with the review as I had my head in the clouds :) We got married in Merrion hotel at the end of June, it was only 5 of us, so it was just a small celebration! I am not sure was it all heightened by the lockdown and we were just out of it but it was magical! Hotel went above and beyond to make our small celebration unforgettable ...so our humble thank you from the bottom of our hearts goes to every single member of staff who made it possible :) The atmosphere was just dazzling, food was delicious , room was just lavishing ( thanks to the hotel for the treat ) and staff - staff what makes the place so wonderful. they made us feel at ease and welcoming. It was my first time stepping into this magical building and hopefully it won't be the last :) I often pass by Merrion hotel and I am delighted that anytime I will pass it will bring me the most wonderful memories. Thank you... and I look forward coming back there sometime in the near future

Hotel's Favourite
Couldn't fault the Merrion at all, from extra safety precautions, to the spa, to the food - everything was wonderful. Was so lovely to spend a few days relaxing. As we're from Dublin and couldn't leave the county, we were worried that we wouldn't get into that 'holiday mode' but the Merrion had us relaxed the second we walked in the door. Staff so friendly and helpful, room was gorgeous and exceptionally clean. Amazing!

We spent three nights in The Merrion and loved it. All of the five star touches are there. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Pool is wonderful and special mention to Leanne in the spa who is the perfect mix of professional and warm. I am seven months pregnant and this was the perfect relaxing break, with all of the city amenities on the hotel doorstep if we wished to avail. Art in the hotel is incredible, gardens are great. Our room was very well appointed, bed super comfortable. Room service for dinner on the first night was of a high standard with great service. Breakfast each morning was delicious and service fabulous. Most especially, the hotel was extremely understanding when we couldn’t make our first night due to an unforeseen medical issue. They did not charge us for that night and held the room until the following morning when I was due to revive GP advice on whether I could travel. We had a really excellent experience overall.

Without doubt the finest hotel in Dublin. We’re lucky enough to live in Dublin yet we visit the Merrion regularly, even more so during the hot nights, we all need a bit of air con when it’s nearly 30 degrees. The team here are world class. We particularly want to mention Hugo serving in the garden, what a wonderful young man. My wife and I had a slightly off experience here not long ago, Martin and Kelly not just resolved it but made us love the hotel even more than we did before. We stayed here during our honeymoon through lockdown and they couldn’t have done more for us. We will be back time and time again. Thank you team Merrion. Thank you so much.
