Our Story

Welcome To The Merrion Inn

We are a third generation family run business with a simple philosophy – have happy customers.

We couldn’t achieve this without our fantastic team, some who are with us for up to 20 years – they are our best asset and we cannot do it without them.

Our key focus is on our food offering and we have an extensive a la carte menu with daily fresh fish specials. All of our food is prepared in-house, using the finest fresh ingredients.

Our team of chefs is led by Head Chef Jon Rogen formerly of Caviston’s.

We will look forward to welcoming you

Fearghus Mc Cormack, Owner
