My sister and I stayed for 2 nights recently to see Bruce Springsteen at the RDS. Although we have been back for a few weeks now I am still on a high from such a great weekend. We were greeted at the door by Patrick, who deserves a special mention for his smile and enthusiasm. All the staff, without exception were fansastic. Friendly efficient, knowledgeable and cheerful. We were treated so well. We had tickets to see Bruce Springsteen the first night (who was amazing!) and as we enjoyed it so much decided we wanted to go the second night. The concierge provided us quickly with great tickets at face value only - we were delighted!
We had an amazing champagne cream tea served with charm, very efficiently. (Tip - unless very hungry have one between 2!)
Hotel was expensive, but reassuringly so. Am saving up to take my husband!
Loved it loved it loved it!

Stayed here recently to avail of the special offer with restaurant patrick guilbaud. Without doubt the best hotel I have stayed in in Ireland. Level of service is superb, rooms beautiful and the location excellent. If only I could stay here every time I visit Dublin.
Go there if you can!

My husband & I stayed at The Merrion Hotel in Dublin for 5 nights for the U2 shows at Croke Park. The hotel has superb reviews on Trip Advisor & this was one of the deciding factors for us to stay there - we were not disappointed.
From the very minute we stepped into the lobby the staff we extremely friendly, polite & ready to help with your every wish.
Our room was superb - spotless-clean, loads of space, luxury shower/bath room & everything you could wish for. We asked for a laptop & tea/coffee facilities & these were brought to our room instantly at no extra charge for the duration of our stay.
The swimming pool is superb - a truly relaxing experience in the heart of this great city.
Highly recommend the Cellar bar - lovely food, great drinks & again, very attentive staff.
Would recommend this hotel as the best in Dublin (we've tried a few now) - can't wait to go back for the pampering & luxury treatment!

Availed of the Merrion's Seven Star Steal Deal - overnight stay in the Merrion and 4 course surprise menu in Restaurant Patrick Guildbaud. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very warm welcome and efficient check-in set the tone for the quality and friendly service afforded to us throughout. Dinner in Guilbauds was superb. Excellent breakfast the next morning. For the quality on offer this deal is exceptional value.

Stayed: June 2009, travelled on business
