Merrion (Irish: Muirfin)[1] is a townland and suburban area located about 4 km south east of Dublin City. The townland has an area of approximately 0.8 square kilometres (0.3 sq mi).[2]

Merrion is situated along the Merrion Road between Ballsbridge to the north and Booterstown to the south.[citation needed] This stretch of road, about 1 km long, contains a shopping mall (the Merrion Centre), St. Vincent's University Hospital, a Catholic church (Our Lady Queen Of Peace),[3] the Merrion Inn public house, a petrol station, a Bank of Ireland branch, a restaurant and several retail outlets.[citation needed]

Merrion lies within the administrative area of Dublin City Council, and ends at the border with the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council administrative area, near the Merrion Gates.[citation needed]
