The Merrion in Dublin, Ireland
Gracefully created from four restored Georgian townhouses, The Merrion is an historic retreat in the heart of Dublin. Only a tiny brass nameplate marks the hotel's unassuming brick exterior, but inside, marble floors and columns and ornate rococo plasterwork ceilings show off the grand style of 18th century Ireland. Each element of the hotel inspires admiration--from the bedrooms adorned with Irish fabrics and antiques to Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud to the soothing ambience of Tethra Spa. Take time to enjoy the notable works of 19th and 20th century art, considered to be one of the most important private collections in Ireland.
The stately hotel sits opposite Government Buildings on Upper Merrion Street. Step outside and you will find The National Gallery and The Natural History Museum at your doorstep. A short scenic walk takes you to the adjacent "Golden Mile," home to the lively pubs, shops and restaurants that surround St. Stephen's Green. If you're a history buff, you'll want to spend time exploring Dublin Castle with its underground walls and moat, or admiring the "Book of Kells" at Trinity College. Or if socializing is more your style, the groovy, high-tech Guinness Storehouse is a must, as is a visit to the hotel's own eatery, The Cellar Restaurant.

Reviews for The Merrion
Visited as a group of 6 for lunch in the newly opened Garden Room. The decor is absolutely amazing and I can't wait to visit when it is sunny. We started off by sharing a few appetizers and snacks. The fritto misto and steak tartare were the stars of the show.....until the mains arrived. The black sole was heavenly, and even though it wasn't my dish, there was enough to share. My veal was divine, as was the lamb and lemon sole. Cheese boards to follow, all washed down with a glorious Malbec....and perhaps a couple of ports. Best dining experience this year!

The operation was slick from reservation (by phone) to checking out and everything in between. The professionalism/knowledge/approachability of all staff was apparent and we had a throughly enjoyable stay. Yes, The Merrion is expensive but then so are all hotels in Dublin but I felt the experience was worth paying that bit extra for.
I recommend the Merrion mostly because of the location and the great service. The bedding is so comfortable. Among the best beds I ever slept in. I would certainly stay at the Merrion again on a future visit of Dublin

Excellent Hotel in a perfect location - close to St Stephen's Green with plenty of quality bars and restaurants close by but the Hotel itself is wonderfully calm. Staff are professional and friendly. Rooms are beautifully appointed and clean. The best Hotel we have stayed at in Dublin. We will certainly return.

The best door staff ever - helpful and cheerful even though we hadnâ€™t reserved a parking space. Room was on the small side but perfectly formed with in room amenities incl iron and hairdryer. Nice spa although quite a small pool and seating area.
