Fabulous accommodation right in the heart off the city. v generous sized rooms. Nice touches include spare fridge for your purchases, earplugs, and DVD loan. The nearby provided breakfast was from a great little cafe overlooking the Liffey and was very good. Just one irksome thing to watch out for is the La Caverna offer of a discount when booked... More

We were staying for 6 nights and we paid for them many months in advanced.There is no staff in the building after 4pm. On the first night a couple had a terrible argument in and outside their room. We could not sleep afterwards. It was scary. On the fourth night another couple absolutely drunk not only had a terrible quarrell... More

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

As Manager it is my job to address some issues in the above review. It was totally regrettable that this Guest had a bad experience during their recent stay in Dublin. Another Guest (1) had a domestic issue with his Wife and too much alcohol was taken. That Guest was removed the very next day at 11am by the Police.... More

We had to travel to Dublin last minute to get a travel Visa, we saw this place and liked the look of it, it was last minute and out of season so we got a seemingly good rate. Guests get a discounted parking rate at the nearby car park at €20 which is not too bad given the location. It... More

We visited Dublin and the Theatre recently and eventually booked The Merchant House in Temple Bar. Tried booking it on three other occasions and they were always full. We were not disappointed at all. Luxurious & comfortable , lovely decor and very polite / friendly staff. The Suite was spacious and the bed king size was so comfortable. No noise... More

Stayed for 3 nights in May. The room was very beautiful. Lovely bathroom with nice shower. Good service. We had some problem with our flight and had to cancel for one night just few days before. The hotel manager took care of the rearrangement for us. Also they answered emails quickly. Excellent location in the middle of Temple Bar. There... More

The hotel is in a fabulous location - literally 1 minute walk to the famous Temple Bar. The windows have double glazing so the room was well sound-proofed from the alleyway below which was very busy and noisy at night. There is no airconditioning (but there is a fan) and the windows had to be kept closed for this reason... More

The room I stayed in was the WB Yeats Suite. It is exactly like shown in the picture with not a thing out of place. Upon a arrival, we were helped with our bags and the room was readied for us early so we could get in before 2pm which is their checkout time. The facilities were very clean and... More

We stayed in the James Joyce suite and it was great! The room was spacious and had all the amenities. The bathroom as a good size with heated floors. We were concerned at first that it would be loud at night as it was in the middle of the Temple Bar area but we were amazed at how quiet it... More

We stayed in the Bram Stoker room, while it didn't have any windows to the streets, it did have two motorized sky lite windows w/shades and two windows that looked to the interior of the building, it looked directly onto a roof with another story above on all four sides, sort of like an arboretum without any trees, just a...
