My girlfriend treated me to a weekend in Dublin, seeing the sights, enjoying the nightlife, and visiting her relations. We had an absolutely epic time, and much of it was the suite we had and the location. The room: we stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite on the top floor. Absolute luxury feel to it, with beautiful decor and furnishings.... More

The hotel is very well located to visit the temple bar area! Very easy to connect to the airport too! You can visit everything by walking. The room are really spacious and very well decorated. The down point is that it's located in a very busy street just in front of a concert place. There is a very good isolation,... More

The room was great, the housekeeper very sweet, but after check out the manager tried to charge my credit card with 2 breakfasts we had at a nearby café working with the hotel... Only problem is, we paid for those 2 breakfasts cash directly at the café. Now the hotel's manager still states that we didn't pay for those. Obviously... More

Mike R, Manager at The Merchant House, responded to this review

The above information is incorrect. You admitted ordering 'Baileys' cream alcohol drinks with your breakfast. You also ordered more food which is not covered , We provide a 4 course breakfast for €10 . Anything after that is extra. This was politely pointed out to you and you still refused to pay a very modest charge. More

Right in the middle of Temple Bar, within easy walking of main shopping centre, its the perfect location. We were in the Oscar Wilde suite on the third floor and it was beautiful, gorgeous fireplaces, comfortable bed and great facilities. The staff were very helpful and absolutely lovely, nothing was too much trouble, we will definitely be staying again on... More

Absolutely loved our 2 night stay here. This was our second trip to Dublin and last time we stayed a little further out so found the location this year fantastic. The suite (James Joyce) was beautifully decorated and furnished, loved how spacious the room and bathroom was. Very private and quiet, great staff who were so friendly and accommodating. Due...

Very hospitable staff and great location for those who prefer to walk the city of dublin. One warning is parking is several blocks away, so be prepared if you drove to pay extra and walk a few extra blocks. Otherwise, one of the nicest places we stayed while in Ireland. Despite how noisy Temple Bar can be, they have doublepaned... More

Stayed at the Merchant House for the final night of our Ireland Trip. Flight was out early the next morning and, in lieu of turning in the rental car and staying near the airport, which would require cab/bus to and from downtown Dublin, we decided to stay in Temple Bar and take the cab early in the AM (proved to...

Stayed three nights in this luxury suite in the heart of temple bar. Lots of room and very well appointed. We were greeted by the very helpful housekeeper who helped us with cases up the stairs. Extra glazing to keep out noise of vibrant area outside was effective.

We had a lovely night in the Oscar Wilde room, an artist's garret in the attic of the house. A wonderfully decorated room, with quotes from the man himself all around. The room had a shower room and toilet (lower the blind so the neighbours can't see in), mini bar and tea and coffee facilities. Chocolates, drinks and snacks were... More
