We stayed here on our last night on our UK trip. My wife had picked up a bad cough in wales and was coughing when we checked in. Our host, ( sorry I forgot your name) said to Jen, " I can help that " and made Jen a hot honey and lemon drink. such a lovely gesture. We had... More

Good points : - I've been welcomed very nicely and friendly even though I arrived quite late (around 10 pm) - comfy bed - breakfast is ok Negative points : - small old-fashioned room and tiny bathroom - the employees during breakfast were just chatting and didn't ask the clients for tea or coffee or anything. - worst of all,...

Stayed here for 2 nights and the location was pretty much perfect. Only a short walk from Temple Bar and opposite the oldest pub in Dublin! The rooms have all you need if you're looking for a good budget hotel. Only downside was the noise from the main road but this might have just been where our room was. Would... More

Situated about a 5 minute walk away from the bar heart of temple bar, with a doorman 24/7. Cheap food and drink served till 11pm, optional breakfast buffet. Had small rooms in good condition, with wifi included. Great service with friendly staff. Music on every night of the week!

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
