Beautiful hotel in Georgian Dublin. As other posters have commented, it is expensive but in my view you pay for what you get. The staff are very friendly and professional whilst the bedrooms are a good size. The only issues we had were the noise from the plumbing from neighbouring rooms and as our room (152) had a view of a side road with bins, you could hear the bin-men early in the morning (this may be more a reflection of being a lighter sleeper).

This is a row of Georgian houses combined and extended to make a five star hotel on the upper end of the scale. The hotel is opulent and has some history to it. It was the house in which the Duke of Wellington was born and is located close to Government Buildings.

I stayed there briefly and at 260 Euro a night (website price) it wasn't exactly a bargain, until I was told that the full price was 460 Euro a night. The room was a bit small but it had some nice touches. For example there was a complimentary bottle of champagne in an ice-bucket. It was nicely decorated and furnished. Best of all it was clean.

The bathroom had a walk-in shower which was a big help. There was a good sized bath and shower also in the bath. The towels had a lovely fresh feel to them.

The bed was comfortable. Airconditioning at the touch of a button. The room was overlooking a side street and it was quiet at night.

There is a quiet garden with, unfortunately, a central pond that hadn't been cleaned for some time. It was a bit of a shock to discover this. It looked so lifeless.

Having enjoyed coffee and a brandy I decided not to eat in the hotel as the price of even the most modest dish on the bar menu was a show stopper especially in these times of fiscal restraint, and I ate out at a nearby restaurant.

The hotel staff were friendly and efficient especially reception and the excellent concierge.

This is without doubt the finest hotel in Dublin. The service is impeccable, the main house rooms are lovely, especially the suites. We have stayed at the hotel several times and each time has been a joy. We appreciate the garden and it's outdoor restaurant in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Dublin. We come back to the hotel and find such peace and quiet in that lovely garden and can enjoy a meal there as well.

Loved The Merrion Hotel! Great location and staff willing to 'go the extra mile' for guests! Top notch in our book, and we will return on our next trip to Dublin!

One of my best friends and I spent a long weekend at The Merrion. Our favorite part of the stay was the lovely garden that the hotel wraps around and the incredible common areas with the peat fires that others have mentioned. It makes the hotel a great place to relax and unwind, and the amazing staff did everything they could to ensure we had a great weekend. They are very attentive and friendly, not at all pretentious, which is a pet-peeve of mine in high-end hotels.

Our room was lovely -- very traditional styling which isn't my favorite, but beautiful nonetheless. The bathroom was beautiful and had a huge bathtub that was great for soaking. The bath products themselves are also a special treat.

I had a massage in the spa and can also recommend that part of the experience. The staff was great and the services were in keeping. We also had beautiful breakfasts each morning and enjoyed the restaurant.

The price tag is high, but well worth it if you want to treat yourself for a lovely weekend!
