Wow! Stayed at The Merchant House in Dublin for a Birthday treat for my husband's 50th. We arrived on Saturday 23rd - 27th May didn't know about the referendum for same sex marriages was taking place that day so explains why Temple Bar was mental. All good though. Had emailed The Merchant House during week stating estimated time of arrival... More

We stayed at The Merchant House from Tue 28.05.15 for two nights and everything about the hotel was excellent. From meeting Jorge at check-in we knew the stay was going to be easy and hassle free as he was very accommodating with holding our luggage until we arranged a check-in time with him and he even had our room ready...

We stayed at the Oscar Wilde Suite. Great for a couple spending a few days in Dublin. Its located in the heart of the Temple Bar area. The room has double glazing etc.. so you can sleep even when folks are partying outside. Large comfortable room and lavish decor in a unique style. Well appointed with walk in shower, nespresso...

On arrival we were greeted by a nice gentleman He showed us to our room on the top floor and carried my not so light suitcase up 4 flights of stairs. We stayed in the Oscar Wilde Suite. It was gorgeous. After a quick review on where everything he located, I was presented with a little small journal. Very nice... More

I reserved 2 suites for our group of 4 adults via Booking.com (we are in our 50's and 60's) hoping to enjoy a night in Dublin where we could have a nice dinner with friends. No mention of a party/ gathering or a reunion in my booking just that we were coming with our Australian friends, it was a birthday... More

I am a literary fan and so this hotel was right up my street. We stayed in the W.B. Yates room and we loved it, the staff are very friendly and explained everything to us and showed us all the great places to go on the map as soon as we got there. They looked after our bags before and... More

No need to wax lyrical about the Merchant House. Yes there is a sex shop below and no there is no restaurant. Well so what ? The room was clean, clean and spacious, the bathroom spotless. You're in Temple Bar, step in off the street and you're back to sanity and lovely clean war me room. Me and the missus... More

Now, you may think that by me only giving this 3 stars, I didn't really like it. Far from it! Lets start with the positives. We arrived and were promptly met at the entrance by 2 young guys who seemed to be running the place. Both very friendly and helpful. They checked us in, showed us to our room and... More

Nicely nested in the heart of Temple bar area, this guesthouse has been a wonderful experience. Jorge will welcome you and explain in details all what your room offers as well as all information you need to know about Dublin. We were in the Oscar Wilde room, on the top floor, and this room is very nice. It is very... More

To explore almost all of the Dublin sights but of course you are staying in Temple bar! I confess I didn't do my homework properly and thought the room was in a small boutique hotel and at first I was a bit miffed there wasn't a bar or a lounge, but of course you're never from from either, so no...
