Stopped here for lunch on the way to Dingle. We had the special Irish roast beef with mash and veggies. Excellent service and lovely food. The beef was tender and flavorful, veggies just tender. Best of all was the horseradish. Yummy! Highly recommended.

We stopped off for dinner on our way back to Dublin and the food was absolutely amazing and so reasonably priced! We had mussels and prawns - huge huge huge portion and the lamb which was very tasty. If we weren't in a rush I would have tried their dessert too! Highly recommend this place! Staff were very friendly too!

Excellent meal. Great portions, lovely food and good value. The kids and adult meals were delicious and everyone enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly. We called on our way back from cliffs of Moher. A great find.

What a treat to find this town after witnessing a brilliant sunset at the cliffs of Moher. A friend from Blarney mentioned Kinvarna as a town to hit on on our way to Clifden. The staff was excellent, food and breakfast was top notch and the proprietor, Julie, was a sweetheart.

We stopped by for lunch recently - there were 7 of us in total (two families) and we found a very comfortable table in the bar. There was a wide selection of food for adults and kids, and the quality was excellent. But the thing that really distinguished the Merriman was the excellent staff. I don't think I've ever come...

Stayed here with a group of friends recently and had an enjoyable time. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the bar on the second night of our trip, the salmon with vierge sauce was delicious, we were all impressed with the food quality and regretted not having eaten there on the first night...

I stayed here for a friends 40th birthday in Jan 2017. We got what we paid for; in that it was cheap and the standard of the hotel was basic. This is all we wanted so it suited us. I have no issues with that. However, on arriving home the following the day, after staying in The Merriman, I noticed...

Good location on the main street in Kinvara. Good sized rooms, that are clean and modern. Parking, bar, and restaurant. Not the friendliest staff or the best service, but the whole town is that way compared to other small Irish villages we've been to, which are our favorite places to be on earth! But a very pretty town with a...

I visited here with my spouse and some friends for a hillwalking weekend in November 2016 and was not disappointed. The hotel seemed to be fully booked in the middle of winter. The food was also surprisingly good for a hotel and we ate there for both nights of our visit.
