We are a third generation family run business with one simple goal – make sure our customers leave happy. 

We couldn’t achieve this without our fantastic team, some who are with us for up to 15 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 and our team of chefs is led by Head Chef David Jolley.

We will look forward to welcoming you.

Hi. ,In the past two weeks I have eaten here twice. I chose fish and chips on both occasions and was really satisfied with the portion size, quality and consistency. Both times were in the hours before the Irish senior men’s rugby team took part in test matches at the Aviva Stadium. The Merrion Inn was heaving with green clad patrons. Despite the high volume, the service and food quality was exemplary. Highly recommend this venue for food.

Trip Advisor, 20 Nov 18Great food, lovely service, fair bill

Delighted to see that the pub was absolutely buzzing over the bank holiday weekend. It’s always a pleasure to drop by for dinner or just a drink. The menu offers an excellent choice of gourmet pub food and a wide range of wines and craft beers. The guys there are always incredibly friendly and welcoming making this a firm favourite in the D4 area . We especially like their steak special on a Thursday night.

Trip Advisor 1 Nov 18Consistently great food!

We were recommended this place for dinner by our bed & breakfast. It was great! A little fancier than a pub, but very comfortable and the service was great. The chips were very good.Food was tasty and hot, they have a wide selection of wines and other spirits. We were very happy to have dinner there after a long day trip to the Blarney Castle. I would definitely recommend the Merrion Inn for dinner.

Trip Advisor 6 Oct 18Great spot for dinner!
