We went to The Mercantile for our first Guinness and later on for dinner. It's located in the heart of the city, right in front of Temple Bar. It has a great decor, but the food... read more

The other woman I think so from South America too who picked up the plates was worst with a unfriendly face and angry too.... More

Extremely disappointed with the behavior of theirs bouncer that introduced himself as Jonathan. An ultimate contradiction of what hospitality is all about.

Very poor staff. Very Poor Hygiene in the room. (found black hairs all over the bathroom floor and towels) Bed is alrite. Rooms facing the street and very loud. Best yet a kitchen porter wheeled his kitchen trolley into the customer lift and left it there with us. DISGUSTING. Will not be back here again. Visitors beware.

We have had drinks in the bar on previous visits to Dublin and have liked the setting so decided to call in for dinner on a whim. We were led to a table at the back by a very nice man who gave us menus & took a drinks order. Initially I was not impressed with how close we were... More

The place is really nice, good atmosphere and good music, but every time is difficult to get in as the guys at the entrance always make problems to people saying such things as "try at the back door" even if inside is half empty (you can easily see it from the windows!) !!! I wonder if the ower of the... More

Popped in to watch the football which they had on big screens and TVs. Staff were friendly and until it busied up service was quick. Good location and it had a good Irish vibe!

A central pub with two different bars downstairs & a large upstairs usually reserved for functions. It's a teeny tiny bit posh - literally just teetering on fancy schmancy - yet otherwise a really cool and vibrant pub. The other bar has a completely different, down to earth sort of vibe to it. It can get incredibly busy on weekends... More

This hotel really is in the heart of Dublin. You can walk everywhere from here. The room I stayed in overlooked Dame St which is full of hustle and bustle, but gives the place a real city feel. It is noisy, but there are ear plugs provided. I slept very well in the generous sized bed. The room was clean... More

I came here to meet with some friends and as the starting place for a pub crawl and found it fine. Prices were what you would expect for the area (5 euro pints give or take, 5 euro shots), atmosphere is pretty good, good music (Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Beatles)
