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... More

Stayed here for two nights in late June. Absolutely loved it. Easy to find an on arrival we were met by Jorge who showed us to our room, The Oscar Wild Suite on the top floor. 56 stair but totally worth it, the suite was fantastic. Jorge kindly showed us around and let us know how things worked, before he... More

This complex is privately owned and is absolutely fantastic. The trip was with family + best friend to celebrate my recent retirement. Jorge (I think that was his name) was waiting for us to show us the 3 rooms that we had booked (2 per room). The rooms were very spacious, exceptionally clean and stocked with both soft and alcoholic... More

We stayed at the Merchant House a couple of weeks ago and had a brilliant time. There are some reviews on here which say the Bram Stoker room is too small, but we found it much bigger (and more homely) than most hotel rooms. Last year we stayed in a similar district of Paris and got a lot less room... More

Wow! Stayed at The Merchant House in Dublin for a Birthday treat for my husband's 50th. We arrived on Saturday 23rd - 27th May didn't know about the referendum for same sex marriages was taking place that day so explains why Temple Bar was mental. All good though. Had emailed The Merchant House during week stating estimated time of arrival... More

We stayed at The Merchant House from Tue 28.05.15 for two nights and everything about the hotel was excellent. From meeting Jorge at check-in we knew the stay was going to be easy and hassle free as he was very accommodating with holding our luggage until we arranged a check-in time with him and he even had our room ready...

We stayed at the Oscar Wilde Suite. Great for a couple spending a few days in Dublin. Its located in the heart of the Temple Bar area. The room has double glazing etc.. so you can sleep even when folks are partying outside. Large comfortable room and lavish decor in a unique style. Well appointed with walk in shower, nespresso...

On arrival we were greeted by a nice gentleman He showed us to our room on the top floor and carried my not so light suitcase up 4 flights of stairs. We stayed in the Oscar Wilde Suite. It was gorgeous. After a quick review on where everything he located, I was presented with a little small journal. Very nice... More

We are indeed sorry that you did not stay with us. You reserved two beautiful Suites for one night and YES there was an initial misunderstanding , but it could have been cleared up immediately BUT you chose to cancel and a complete refund was made.
