Be careful where you book in Dublin. Some hotels are a short walk into the City Centre. Alright if you're in sunny Barcelona but this is Dublin, expect it to rain. I'm a native, I should know! Avoid the Dylan (terrrible service) and the Four Seasons (overpriced). Nowhere matches the Merrion for a unique Dublin experience. Beautiful Georgian architecture, peat fires (even in the summer!), great staff and superb location make the Merrion top of everyone's list. As with all 5 stars, this part of the market is hurting so last minute bargains are available. Do yourself a favour, check out the rates and treat yourself to stay here.

We had a one night stay in The Merrion hotel recently. The package we booked was a 1 night B&B with one evening meal.
Our car was taken from us on arrival – made us feel like royalty, and our check in went smoothly and quickly. Staff at front desk were very nice and helpful.
On walking through the hotel on the way to our room, we were in awe at the amazing sitting rooms and art. The garden is lovely and very unexpected, with a cozy seating area outside to enjoy it.
Our room was in the Garden wing and was very well presented. The bathroom was huge, with a shower and bath. The only thing that disappointed us was the view of a red brick wall with graffiti scrawled across it. The website promises a ‘magnificent city view’ so don’t be let down if you get this view instead!
Some drinks in the Cellar bar proved to be lovely. The atmosphere and the design is unique and makes for a lovely relaxing evening.
We had dinner in the Cellar Restaurant as part of our ‘5 star Steal’ package. We were a little disappointed with the lack of choice on the menu we received, especially for starters and desserts. The main course was lovely and tasty. The Cellar Restaurant itself is a nice room and the staff are very attentive and helpful, constantly enquiring if they can do anything for you or get you anything else.
Breakfast the next morning was again in the Cellar Restaurant and this was a real treat. Lovely cooked to order breakfast with an amazing selection of muffins, pastries, cereals etc from the buffet. Again staff were lovely, always enquiring if we needed anything else.
Checkout went smoothly but we had to wait approximately 25 minutes for our car to be delivered. But on the plus side, when it was finally returned the member of staff had washed it for us!
Overall, posh hotel lives up to its name and reviews, but if you are staying in the cheaper rooms be prepared for no view!!!

we stayed for 1 night at this hotel last saturday. I have only good things to say about the place. Arriving early at hotel staff were more than professional and friendly. Our room was in the main building and what a room, high ceilings,fantastic windows and window dressings, dressing room, very large bathroom...heaven.
As to the art work throughout the hotel it is stunning. We had dinner in Patrick Guilbauld's that evening and once again it was flawless.
Breakfast next morning served in the Cellar restaurant was probably the best buffet breakfast i have had. Yes, its an expensive hotel but worth every penny and i cant wait to go back.

This hotel has many amenities but by far the best was the staff. Everyone from the front desk, to the concierge to the wait staff for tea were absolutely fabulous. We were traveling with our 8 month old for the first time and chose this hotel because of the reviews and were not disappointed. They were able to accommodate us very early after a long flight from the states and even upgraded us to a suite when we returned at the end of our trip. The old style elegance and modern art throughout the hotel and gardens just added to a wonderful stay.

Very nice stay at the Merrion. Terrific location, good staff, good rooms, nice restaurants. Would especially recommend for business as it's quiet and unfussy. Only downfall was truly lousy room service - definitely make the effort to enjoy the fabulous restaurants instead of staying in your room!
