Have just returned from a mid week stay at the Merchant House in Temple Bar Dublin. The place was just what we wanted; well situated, spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed. The House Manager looked after us well and they have taken care to look after the details which make all the difference. Breakfast was served at a restaurant... More

Stayed here for a romantic night away after Christmas. Rooms are beautiful and it was such a treat and such luxury. We had the Oscar Wilde suite- and it is exactly as is in pictures! Stunning fireplace, luxury bed linen, and brilliant power shower in the modern bathroom! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn't want the hustle... More

We booked four nights in the Oscar Wilde suite and it was fantastic! Beautifully decorated and very spacious with a comfortable bed. The staff was very helpful and greeted us at the door and provided us with maps and lots of recommendations of what to do in the area. We loved the breakfast at the Stage Door Cafe where the... More

We pampered ourselves with two nights in the luxurious James Joyce suite, and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was spacious, immaculate and beautifully decorated. It is a one of a kind. We were warmly greeted by Jorge, the housekeeper, who provided a lot of help with planning our outings in the area. The location could not be more... More

We stayed in the James Joyce room. It was very spacious and well appointed. The manager was very helpful. Located in the centre of the Temple Bar area which is very close to pubs, shops and attractions. The room was quiet even though it was in a busy part of town. Heather & Graham July 2014

Fantastic apartment, that gave a feeling of staying at a modern, but homy place. It has everything you can wish for and a little more as well. Wish we had more nights to stay here, because it was truly excellent. Staff was really friendly and helpful. I will book this place again next time i go to Dublin!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night as a birthday surprise to Dublin and like another review stated the first impression is a little off putting, surrounded by bars and an adult shop! HOWEVER, as soon as you step indoors the doubts disappear. We stayed in the James Joyce Suite, WOW, from the comfiest of beds, to the... More

The Merchant House is extremely well situated in the heart of the Temple bar, close to all the theatres, transport links and restaurants. The Oscar Wilde suite was spacious, clean and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. As we stayed on Tuesday night, there was hardly any noise coming from the downstairs bar. There was no... More

Eustacestreet, Manager at The Merchant House, responded to this review

We are indeed sorry that you did not enjoy your breakfast on both mornings of your recent stay with us. As you did not show your disappointment to the restaurant Manager, your Housekeeper or indeed myself during your stay, it is now difficult to help in this regard. We use both restaurants for our breakfast's at The Merchant House and... More
