Expert reviews

CNN review:

“The Merrion is all class, kitted out in gleaming white marble and gorgeous restored Georgian details. The hotel’s 123 guestrooms are light and airy, fitted to an impeccable standard with period furnishings and Irish fabrics in neutral tones.”

Lonely Planet review:

“This resplendent five-star hotel, in a terrace of beautifully restored Georgian townhouses, opened in 1988 but looks like it’s been around a lot longer. Try to get a room in the old house, rather than the newer wing, to sample its truly elegant comforts.”

Fodors review:

“Stately and spiffy, and splendidly situated directly across from the Government Buildings between St. Stephen’s Green and Merrion Square, this luxurious hotel actually comprises four exactingly restored Georgian town houses.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Dublin.

Telegraph review:

“Gracious, elegant and with standards of hospitality that are second to none, The Merrion exudes period charm from its prime position in the heart of Dublin.”
