The Merrion Hotel, Dublin IRELAND

We just returned home after spending a week at this hotel in Dublin Centre. Rated so highly - overpriced, smug and dowdy. Will never stay there again. The best part? The delightful Door Men! Other best part - using the Spa pool. We were sorry we selected this hotel for our 40th anniversary.

A very nice place to stay

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
A very nice hotel in a quiet area of Dublin, but not too far from the the shopping area. Certianly lived up to it's number one billing. Expensive, but worth it.

Wonderful, Luxury Hotel

I spent 3 nights at The Merrion. I was traveling alone and this hotel was recommended to me by a friend who travels frequently to Dublin. From my experience, many European hotels claim to be 5 star but few live up to their rating. The Merrion is truly a five star hotel. The hotel is beautiful and luxurious. The lobby and sitting rooms have beautiful antiques and artwork. The gardens in the courtyard are equally spectacular. The rooms are extremely comfortable with large and well equipped bathrooms. The restaurant is excellent! There is free internet access, which is rare in European hotels! I can't say enough good things about this wonderful hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely staff there again!
