The Merrion Hotel, Dublin
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.”

“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.”

The Shelbourne Renaissance Hotel, Dublin
Expert reviews

“Dating back to 1824, the Shelbourne is an elegant historic hotel overlooking St. Stephen’s Green. Its Horseshoe Bar is a Dublin landmark; anyone who’s ever been anyone in Ireland has stopped here for a drink.”

Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Dublin.

“The Shelbourne has been the preferred halting post of the powerful and wealthy since 1824. Several owners and refurbs later it is now part of Marriott’s Renaissance portfolio, and while it has a couple of rivals in the luxury stakes, it cannot be beaten for heritage.”

Fodors review:

“Paris has the Ritz, New York has the St. Regis, and Dublin has the Shelbourne—today, newly resplendent in its broad, ornamented, pink-and-white, mid-Victorian facade after a no-expense-spared renovation by new owner Marriott.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Dublin.

Frommers review:

“A feeling of fin de siècle elegance pervades throughout the grand lobby rooms, with high plaster ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and a winding iron staircase. Guest rooms have a much more discreet, contemporary elegance.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Dublin.

Telegraph review:

“The signature red-brick Victorian façade of The Shelbourne Dublin has glowed on the northern side of St Stephen’s Green since 1824. Think five-star elegance: the main bar is a popular fixture on the city’s social scene, while afternoon tea in the Lord Mayor’s Lounge is something of a Dublin tradition.”
