Loved this hotel and definetly the best 5* I have stayed in and certaintly the best in Ireland. Rooms are stunning and the service is fabulous without being too intrusive. it has a old world feel to it.

Room Tip: My room was not one of the expensive ones and even at that the nicest room I ahve stayed in. The photos do not do them justice.

Pro's:
- Great location in Dublin city centre only a few minutes stroll from Stephens Green.
- Wonderful service from all staff members without exception. Polite and polished in all cases.
- Beautiful drawing rooms with elaborate floral displays for drinks or afternoon tea.
- Extensive drinks menu in the residents bar with lovely complimentary nuts and olives.
- Nice toilitries available in the bathroom. Decent size and good quality.

Con's:
- Long wait for breakfast.
- Room was nice but not very luxurious. Some new, more luxurious bed linen could improve this. All other facilities in the room were great though.
- Expensive so keep an eye out for good deals on the website.

We were delighted to have an opportunity to stay at The Merrion while on a recent business trip to Dublin. Overall, we were very pleased with our short stay. The service and the food were the highlights and the package on offer represented very good value.

From the moment we arrived the service was just excellent. Friendly and efficient staff took care of car, bags and check in with the utmost professionalism and good humour. Any requests that we had were taken care of with impressive speed and attention to detail.

Our only disappointments related to our room. While beautifully appointed and perfectly clean, we were disappointed to find that we overlooked an alley way and a disused red brick building, complete with graffiti. We had assumed from the website that a Garden Wing Room would afford some view of the garden - this was our own misunderstanding that this is not automatically the case. When we looked back at our booking, it did describe the room as having a "City View", in this case however, it wasn't one of the more pleasant city-scapes and certainly not one that featured in the photographs on the website. Given that we had engagements outside the hotel and would not be returning until later that evening, we closed the curtains and ignored the view.

Our further disappointment relating to the room occurred at about 12:40 am, when we were awakened by extremely loud and persistent plumbing noises. One of our neighbours (above or next door?) was taking a shower. Thankfully it ended after about 15 minutes, just as we were about to call reception. It didn't last too long, but it did put an end to a good night's sleep. We did mention this at check out, but were not sure how this feedback would be handled and what efforts would be made to ensure that future occupants of this room would avoid the same fate. Given that our overall experience was otherwise very good, we would like to think that this was a one off but we're not so sure!

Overall, the service, food and facilities in the main hotel made for a very agreeable stay. The location is excellent and allowed us to walk wherever we needed to get to on this trip. We would return, but would ensure that we selected a different room.

My boyfriend booked this hotel as a surprise valentines weekend and i can honestly say it is a stunning hotel. From the moment we arrived the service was amazing. It is a fantastic hotel and it completely deserves its five stars. We stayed in the Lord Monck suite which is absolutely stunning and is huge. The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough to help the service was faultless. The spa was lovely and it has a beautiful swimming pool. The breakfast was gorgeous and although we only stayed for the weekend i can honestly say i don't think another hotel will ever live up to the expectations i have after staying here. Wonderful hotel, fantastic staff especially the concierge and very highly recommended. 10/10

Room Tip: The Lord Monck suite is highly recommended if you want luxury and a huge bed. Very warm and cosy but so clean and beautiful.

As other reviews have said, pure bliss. Stayed on the five star steal again, which really does not cost much more than a lot of basic enough hotels around Dublin, when everything is taken into account. The hotel is understated elegance, staff are very friendly and helpful. I love it and cant wait to get to stay again soon!
