located above a fetish shop should have been a clue. In the party area we expected the are to be lively but night one was like having a brass band playing in your bedroom such was the lack of effectiveness of the secondary glazing. we were awake for four hours until the party ended. Night two was a Sunday but... More

Having arrived after 30 hours of travel from Australia the Merchant House and our welcome by Julijana was wonderful. Easy to find after using the bus from the airport, we waisted no time to find a pub (of which there are many), and had some very nice ales (for medicinal purposes). In the heart of Temple Bar was the best... More

I'd booked this as a surprise for my partner on the occasion of his birthday, which coincided with the last night of our mini tour of Ireland, and I was truly delighted with my find. The location above a sex shop, the absence of a formal reception area, the lack of a bar or restaurant...none of these matters. It's impeccably... More

Stayed here midweek for 2 nights with my wife. The room itself is a decent size, as is the bathroom. One minor gripe is that it is slightly overstating itself when it is advertised as a 'suite'. It is more a larger hotel room (although a good one at that - we stayed in the Bram Stoker room). Everything that... More

Thank you indeed for taking the time to leave a review of The Merchant House. We are indeed happy that you enjoyed your two night stay with us. However, you selected The Bram Stoker Room and YES it is not a Suite. It is not advertised as a Suite and all your documents stated that it is The Bram Stoker... More

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
