My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Merrion in Dublin. Arriving early after a transatlantic flight, our room was not ready (we were offered shower facilities in the spa), so we hit the town. A couple of hours later, we received a text from the hotel indicating that our room was ready (very helpful).
We received an unexpected room upgrade to a very nice suite (Merrion suite). The furnishings and fittings in the room were very pleasant, and the room was quite comfortable. There was a large living room overlooking the beautiful garden (this is probably one of the few places where I found a garden view better than a city/street view) with a couch, coffee table, armchair and desk. There was a separate bedroom, and the bathroom had both a large bathtub and a separate shower stall. Everything was very clean and well-maintained.
We ate twice in the Garden Room restaurant. The food and service were both very good. We had a lovely afternoon "art" tea in the Drawing Room by a lovely fireplace. The pastry chef makes the sweet pastries based on some of the artwork in the hotel!
The indoor pool is a nice place to relax after touring.
ALL of the (international) staff are very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

Room tip: Don't be put off by a "garden view" room. The garden is lovely!

Found this delightful cellar bar when looking to escape the cold. Fab bar, friendly staff and food was delicious . The burgers looked amazing and apparently tasted as good as they looked as the 2 males with me did them justice , large portion. Will be on the list to re visit on the next trip to Dublin.

We had a wonderful stay at this remarkable Hotel. The staff are so friendly and go above and beyond what I had expected. It was my wifes 50th Birthday and we received an upgrade to a mini suite which was exceptionally thoughtful. A complimentary glass of wine was a lovely touch as we waited to be checked in. The rooms as one would imagine are so perfectly turned out. The meal in the Garden restaurant was super. We'll definately return!

The location, venue, staff hospitality and general ambience and quality of this venue is really something special and a credit to all involved as this level of output does not happen by accident. Well done!

I stayed in Rm. 380 in the middle of September. I probably wouldn't be posting this review were it not for the commentary of the reviewer who had such a different experience than mine. First of all, for the leading hotel in a capital city in the EU, the Merrion is doggone inexpensive. Perhaps that is as should be, and in general, for an American, accustomed to prices in other EU capital cities, all of Dublin is quite inexpensive. But the room I had was enormous, exceptionally well equipped and was well priced for what it was. The so-called tea towels are those found in every deluxe hotel when the room is made up for the evening.
The doctor and I have dramatically different tastes. The entrance to the Merrion is elegant in the most tasteful way. And there are plenty of reception rooms of considerable elegance to be found adjacent to the entrance. I certainly had no trouble whatsoever with my breakfast orders-nor did anyone else.
As to finding one's way to the pool, I truly hope the doctor does a better job with patients. Honestly, the first time I went to the pool I called for some one to show me where it was. In about 60 seconds or less, someone came to escort me to the pool. After I was escorted once, it wasn't that much of a chore to find the pool the other days I used it. And what a beautiful pool with water at just the right temperature. An expected luxury in a big city hotel.
But the main reason I am writing is to thank everyone who was kind enough to make my stay memorable. I have stayed in deluxe big city hotels for much of my life. There are some that offer this level of style and comfort. But none who offer this level of attention to detail and service. I must especially commend the staff who set up my laptop and made sure I was able to work comfortably and the concierge who arranged my dining program. But everyone was so eager to please. Please accept my compliments on providing the best of the best for a big city hotel.
