How to Get There
This hotel is in a great location - close to two parks and near museums. The staff can’t be best- service is very good. But with caveats. First , this is an adapted reuse of some very old townhouses. Do you need to I stand that going in. Our room extended accross the width of two of the original townhouses so there was an elevation change down to the bathroom. We found it charming but others may not. There is a more modern wing which may appeal to younger families for example. In addition , our room was very loud. We heard folks in meeting rooms on one side and people watching TV in their room on the other side. Interestingly I saw complaints online about street noise. We had none of that. But the noise from our neighbors was annoying. Nonetheless I give it five stars. It is a special place.
Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by a top-hatted doorman (say Hi to Tommy for me!), and you won't have to worry about a single thing for the rest of your stay. I swear the maids (many of whom are actually men) must have cleaned our room four times a day. We never seemed to have a dirty towel. The high tea (Art Tea) was 2 hours of harp music, lovely tea, and fantastic sandwiches and pastries. And you leave with a catalog of the art collection housed in the hotel, three pieces of which inspired your dessert. (There's a self-guided art tour that's free to guests as well.) Be sure to check out the Cellar Bar while you're there (and order the mac and cheese)! The location is ideal as well, across the street from the National Art Gallery, a stone's throw from St. Stephen's Green, and 5-10 minute walk from Grafton Street.
If you are looking for sheer luxury and elegance in the heart of Dublin look no further. From the time the first concierge spots you heading for the steps of the hotel to the time you say your goodbyes you know that the staff are there to do your bidding. Full marks to the reception staff too, they were courteous, efficient and friendly.
Our room (111) was a superior King Room and to say that it was well equipped would be an understatement, anything you could possibly want was provided. The room was spacious and luxurious with comfortable seating, great wardrobe space and perfect bathroom facilities.
When we booked we were asked was it for a special occasion - it was a birthday treat for my wife from our children - when we were brought to our room there was a lovely plate with a birthday greeting and two lovely pieces of confectionary. Much appreciated.
The art collection in the hotel is well worth checking out. There is a catalogue in every room which provides a great introduction to the collection and a self-guided tour of the collection is highly recommended. All the greats of Irish art are represented and quite apart from the contemporary collection which is superb there is an interesting collection of older Irish and European pictures and some fine pieces of sculpture.
The breakfast, as one would expect, is excellent. I opted for a very interesting Vegan breakfast and it was first class.
If you are looking for a really special treat book yourself a night or two in the Merrion Hotel where high quality service and and luxury will be the hallmarks of your stay.
