How to Get There
I’m a teenager (just about to be fourteen) and came here with my parents. Normally, you’d probably expect me to complain about that, but the staff at this hotel made me feel like someone who was supposed to be there instead of some little inconvenience. I had a deluxe king bedroom for myself (room 281) tucked away on the second floor. Thankfully, it was through two doors and by the stairwell, so it was extra quiet. Even though my view was looking at the back of some houses, the room was great. The bed was comfy, chairs were bouncy, and the maids somehow managed to turn my teenaged mess into a room fit for when your mother says you have guests coming over. And speaking of the workers, I recieved (not sure why, still thankful) a complimentary fruit basket upon check-in and two of their whole made chocolate bars a couple of days later as a gift from a Peter Mac Cann (thanks dude).
I didn’t eat at any of the restaurants in the hotel, but I did get room service one night (a 8oz Irish sirloin with a side of mashed potatoes and asparagus) and found it to be quite delicious. It arrived in about fifteen minutes and was cooked exactly as I would like it, so cheers for that.
In conclusion, stay here. If some bratty little kid can enjoy staying in this hotel while taking a visit to her ancestral homeland, you can too.
The Merrion Hotel is the loveliest, exquisite hotel with the most unassuming exterior. In fact, my guess is that many tourists would walk right past it, not even realising it's a hotel. It's located on the other side of the Government Buildigns where the Taoiseach works, at the Stephen's Square end of the road. In other words, a fantastic location in the centre of Dublin.
The rooms are beautifully furnished, in a classic yet contemporary feel. Needless to say the place is spotless and kitted out with top quality products. The staff are attentive, helpful and efficient.
There is an afternoon high tea on offer which I'd highly recommend - the drawing room (as well as all other rooms) have such a wonderful atmosphere.
My only complaint it that the breakfast is not included in the stay - with an establishment such as this it feels a bit petty and cynical to add breakfast to the bill, as if they are a Holiday Inn.
My husband and I recently visited Dublin and stayed at the Merrion. We Loved the Merrion. The Staff was superior. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We Loved it and would stay again. The bellmen were especially helpful and friendly.
My partner and I are textile nerds and designers. This trip was an ambitious driving tour into Northern Ireland and the Republic to see four mills in three days. Nothing could prepare us for the harrowing driving under tight timelines. When we finally arrived at the Merrion, we had terrible flus (thanks Giants Causeway), and gratefully handed the car keys to the Merrion Valet.
On arrival I was happy to learn that our room had been upgraded. Room 303 is fantastic- super king size bed with two large double windows looking onto the courtyard garden. As we went from ill health to worse, this room became our sanctuary. Never saw a stitch of Dublin. So believe me when I say the restaurants in this hotel are terrific. Service is excellent. Great room service menu, fast delivery. Supreme bed and bath linens. Our bathroom had a shower and separate marble bathtub. Cellar bar is intimate with a good menu. This is a hotel for adults who need a quiet rest in sophisticated surroundings.
We only stay at the Merrion! So attentive to every detail. We have stayed here 4 times before and each time it keeps getting better. Love the Cellar Bar, Library for tea and the spa. great location and short walk to everywhere.
