Great spot in city center. Just one block from main bus routes. Great service. Offered to hold bags and then got room ready early for quick check in. Good sq, but storage is not as much as it looks at first. No separate room spacing to allow for movement without waking someone else. Don't know if this exists in Europe....

The Merchant House is outstanding. We were met by Jorge and dropped off our bags as we were a bit early. We then explored Dublin and checked back in at 2pm. The James Joyce suite is stunning and massive perfect size for a couple getting away and exploring Dublin. You are in the centre of Temple Bar. If you are...

Very large fantastic suites. Rooms were so large they provided a homely feel. Large bathroom. Very well appointed. In the heart of temple bar so there is a little noise from the street, but I found this very minor and it didn't affect my stay at all. Being in the centre provides many dining and pub options right on the...

located above a fetish shop should have been a clue. In the party area we expected the are to be lively but night one was like having a brass band playing in your bedroom such was the lack of effectiveness of the secondary glazing. we were awake for four hours until the party ended. Night two was a Sunday but...

Having arrived after 30 hours of travel from Australia the Merchant House and our welcome by Julijana was wonderful. Easy to find after using the bus from the airport, we waisted no time to find a pub (of which there are many), and had some very nice ales (for medicinal purposes). In the heart of Temple Bar was the best...

I'd booked this as a surprise for my partner on the occasion of his birthday, which coincided with the last night of our mini tour of Ireland, and I was truly delighted with my find. The location above a sex shop, the absence of a formal reception area, the lack of a bar or restaurant...none of these matters. It's impeccably...

Stayed here midweek for 2 nights with my wife. The room itself is a decent size, as is the bathroom. One minor gripe is that it is slightly overstating itself when it is advertised as a 'suite'. It is more a larger hotel room (although a good one at that - we stayed in the Bram Stoker room). Everything that...

Thank you indeed for taking the time to leave a review of The Merchant House. We are indeed happy that you enjoyed your two night stay with us. However, you selected The Bram Stoker Room and YES it is not a Suite. It is not advertised as a Suite and all your documents stated that it is The Bram Stoker...

I know so cliche but this was just beautiful. My wife and I wanted to move from our country to hotel to one in the Temple Bar area and we loved this hotel. We were worried the noise level would be high but we couldn't hear a peep from the outside. The wifi is okay but the charm in the...

Stayed here for two nights in late June. Absolutely loved it.
