Would definitely recommend a stay at O'Sheas. Accommodation is basic but very clean and serviced daily. The pub downstairs is full of authentic Irish charm with live music nightly. Very reasonably priced and tasty meals. Staff are fantastic and extremely helpful. We stayed for 2 nights when we initially landed in Dublin and enjoyed it so much we re-booked for... More

We booked to stay here for the May bank holiday weekend. Whilst it looks to be a little tired, it is in a good location and the breakfasts that they do are pretty good. This place overall is not great and we were a bit disappointed with the overall experience - especially the noise, considering that it is actually not... More

It was Grand and Thanks a Million to the staff at O'Shea's for making us feel so welcome and very much like it was our home. The staff were excellent and went above and beyond to help us whether it be directions or having boarding passes printed out. I know where we will be staying next time we visit Dublin.... More

We stayed here as a large group in early May. Good points. Location, staff, food, good bar, comfortable bed. Not so good points. Not very clean, dated decor, expensive for what it is. Bad points. Road noise outside is 24/7, if you expect to sleep forget it, unless you bring ear plugs!!

very short notice. I booked into O Shea's Merchant and found it comfortable, convenient and very central. The Check-in lady was very helpful with local directions, bus information etc. The room was warm, comfortable and had everything I needed. I would definitely use O'Shea's Merchant again.

Brilliant bar down on the quays near Christchurch. Quiet at despite having late music. Basic rooms but great service. Fantastic food. Late bar until 02:00 with live music. Opposite the oldest pub in Dublin

Basic fitted rooms, the desk price is 79 euros, so consider booking online if it's cheaper. Decoration is there, old but not that old. Close to some attractions and walking distance from the trinity . Was Good Friday so the bar downstairs was closed and didn't experience any anoyance with the music. Walls are thin and saw many people in... More

I usually examine my Trip Advisor hotel listings in sufficient detail that I am never stuck with a really poor hotel (thanks so much to all of you contributors!) My reservation decision for this hotel was made by a friend of mine who apparently thought this would be good. Well, he was wrong. The good about this hotel is its... More
