The place for me in Dublin
We stayed at the Merrion for five unforgettable days and nights. I will definitely return here--a gem of an experience for us. We travel internationally quite a bit, and this hotel is now at the very top of our list. These folks have 'got it down', as they say. Staff were always cheerful, respectful, supremely efficient and welcoming. The facilities and amenities seemed just right, and the location is near perfect. This place quickly feels like home (or like I would like home to be). Room was extremely clean, spacious, and well appointed. The pool, and recreational facilities rival some of the best we have experienced. Cellar bar is cozy and rustic. Not inexpensive, but given the quality, as good value as it gets.
