We've just returned from our annual 6 Nations weekend in Dublin. We went for a long weekend this time so I looked for somewhere a little cheaper to stay. Merchant House did not disappoint. Last year we paid almost twice as much per night and our room at MH (Bram Stoker) was much bigger and included even more amenities. Location... More

Had a 2 night stay in the James Joyce Suite. This is a small property with 4 or 5 suites, so there are no hotel facilities or reception area. Breakfast, if you choose to take it, is at a restaurant at the end of the street, right by the river. The building is very secure, despite being in such a... More

I picked this hotel for its location and it was ideal , no taxis , walked to theatre and restaurants but apart from that our room was lovely . It is a different experience to the usual hotel. 4 suites in an old building and yes there was a bit of noise from the street but no more than someone... More

Better than a B&B, very tidy and clean, room cleaned everyday with fresh towels but a bit on the pricey side but very enjoyable, great location for Temple Bar area plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants and a stone throw from the river Liffey plenty to see and do in temple bar area.

Received our two night stay in the Oscar Wilde Suite as a Christmas present and thought it was fantastic! We were welcomed by Jorge who was extremely helpful, carried my suitcase up the many flights of stairs, showed us where things were located and gave us recommendations for restaurants and bars. The suite itself was beautiful, the bed was comfortable... More

I spent two nights in the oscar Wilde suite with my boyfriend and was extremely happy with our stay. The room was absolutely beautiful and had everything that we could have wished for. The staff couldn't do enough and were ever so friendly. Told us where to go and what we needed to know. Brilliant location and wonderful breakfast!

We just loved staying here in Dublin. Very safe and secured building in the heart of the Temple Bar area. The service was outstanding!! Nice big room, though lots of stairs, but well worth it. The sound proofed rooms are a must in this town. We stayed 4 nights in the Oscar Wilde suite. Would definitely return!! Thanks, Cathy and... More

The Merchant House is much more than a B&B and much more cozy than a hotel. The bathroom in the Bram Stoker room was large, with heated floors and lots of nice towels. The bed was comfortable, and the remote controlled skylight was a really neat feature, allowing us to listen to the Temple Bar area festivities in the evenings... More

Attractive, comfortable accommodation in the heart of Temple Bar. Plenty going on, but still possible to enjoy peace and quiet here. Friendly welcome on early arrival and no problem leaving luggage secure.

We stayed 4 nights in the Oscar Wilde suite which is on the top floor and quite a climb up the narrow staircase, but it's certainly worth the effort when you get there. The suite is very spacious with a high ceiling and is well furnished with lots of top quality art work and ornate features. The large double bed... More
