"Truly five star experience every time."
Have stayed at The Merrion on four different occasions now and every time has been a truly five star experience. Every thing is smooth from arrival to departure. Have stayed in different rooms between the Garden wing and the Main House and although they have been different in size and amenities, each have been luxurious with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Have dined in the cellar restaurant during each stay and have always found the food to be excellent and beautifully presented. Looking forward to when restaurant is moved to first floor so garden views can be enjoyed while dining! The staff are always most pleasant and courteous and attend to your every requirement. This is one of our most favorite hotels and we can't help going back again and again. Looking forward to our next stay, hopefully soon.
"Annual Return Visit"
Started staying at The Merrion many years ago and make sure that I visit at least once a year. Just returned from a 4 day trip and not disappointed. The staff are excellent from the moment you arrive until departure, always great to have a chat with and will go out of their way to help. So far we have only stayed in the Garden Wing as the view is pleasant. At the moment there is building work, and some noise, from a new wing being developed opposite this Wing. However, you are warned about his when booking and is only weekdays 9-5 and should be completed later this year - did not find this to be a problem. The rooms are very well furnished with lovely bathrooms, good soundproofing and always great housekeeping. Recent improvements include a new glass passage to the Garden Wing which has made the Drawing Rooms quieter and more private and has allowed extension to the Terrace area. Definitely the best 5 star hotel in Dublin.
"Nice hotel but"
Nice hotel but We went there because of the reviews. It was a mistake to overlook the negative reviews because they were right about everything. The terrible breakfast, the bad food at their Patrick whatever Michelin restaurant, the attitude of the staff, the small rooms, the noise from construction….This is not a five star hotel, it is a 4. Next time, will stay at the Shelbourne or The Brooks. You have been warned.
From the welcoming bellmen in top hats to the warm front desk staff, everyone at The Merrion could not be more helpful. Our room was spacious, as was the beautiful marble bathroom with separate bathtub and shower and 2 sinks. Our bed was ever so comfortable with luxurious linens and down comforter. The Merrion robes are super fluffy and the slippers comfortable. We were staying at the hotel as part of a theater tour, so enjoyed our buffet breakfast every morning in the private Wellington room, with spectacular high ceilings, plaster work and chandeliers. I felt like royalty while I enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast. If you are visiting Dublin, the Merrion is a must!
Stayed at the Merrion for two nights in July. This was our second time to the hotel and we were not disappointed. The staff maintains a level of excellence that is found in very few hotels. Always warmly welcomed and professionally looked after. Our room was lovely and well appointed. Fabulous bed and linens. Everything you could think of is provided for you. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Dublin.
