What a deliciously comfortable and warmly elegant hotel right in the middle of everywhere you want to be in Dublin.  Gracious, easy going staff (especially the highly gifted, knowledgeable and often hilarious concierge crew who know the very best of Ireland -- not just Dublin!) add to the joy of this city's treasure. Don't even think about staying anywhere else. This is the one.

The hotel was historic, beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly and the service was impeccable. It was enjoyable and informative to chat with the staff about where we visited and places they thought we should not miss. We felt like we were staying with good friends who had some world class art in their home!

The hotel was great! From the chauffeured driver from the airport to the hotel to our room overlooking the Irish Parliament, we were treated as honored guests. All of the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed talking with the staff in the Cellar Bar and the food was excellent. We also took advantage of the two course "Art Tea," which was very delicious and the information booklet covering the artworks in the hotel was excellent.

Very much enjoyed the Marion Hotel in Dublin. The rooms were beautifully done, and each was unique in there decor. I can't be remiss to talk about the phenonmial bathrooms at the hotel. SO spacious, elegant, clean, marble floors and counters, phenomenal rain shower dual showers and even a fantastic deep tub to relax in after a busy day walking. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very, very spacious with a great sitting room where we as a family could always meet up and discuss the day. The staff was superb and very professional yet extremely friendly. All Of our needs were well tended to and very much appreciated!

I cannot emphasize enough what a superb experience my husband and I had at the Merrion. The staff is outstanding, and personable. The concierge service was amazing and any requests we presented were immediately fulfilled. The hotel and gardens are gorgeous and we enjoyed several lovely meals in the restaurants. The location is perfect for exploring the city. This definitely ranks at the top of our list for hotel experiences. I hope to have the opportunity to travel back to Dublin, so that we can enjoy the Merrion again!

The hotel itself was very nice and in a great location. Unfortunately, the staff seemed bored and did not greet or communicate with guests unless you caught their eye. The doormen were very polite and helpful. The staff generally seemed more interested in their cell phones than greeting their guests.
