What a find! Firstly, don't be concerned about Temple Bar noise as this charming guest house is fully double-glazed. We arrived early but it was not an issue as the gentleman who met us, took our bags & when we returned at the specified time, we were taken up to the Oscar Wilde suite (top floor). Exceptionally clean with plenty... More

Excellent little B&B with gracious hosts - the Bram Stoker room was the perfect size and the location couldn't have been any better. Within walking distance of a huge amount of things to see, shopping, the ubiquitous pubs, or just plain people watching. Highly recommend this B&B for couples. Access might be a little tight for families but still doable.

We arrived weary on a late Wednesday night, after more than 26 hours in transit and 22 hours flying direct from Australia, and it was an absolute pleasure to arrive at such delightful accommodation and to have such a warm welcome by the housekeeper and effortless check in process. It was like arriving home! We stayed in the James Joyce... More

We stayed here for two nights during our 22-day vacation, and it was not only the nicest place we stayed during our journey but also the nicest place I think we've ever stayed! We loved how it's been updated and modernized while maintaining much of the original architecture, like the brick fireplaces. We arrived late because we'd popped over to... More

We spent one night in the Oscar Wilde Suite and it was all we were looking for and more. The suite is big, cosy, luxurious and extremely quiet. The hotel is located within the Temple district which can get very busy at night, but we did not hear one single noise and slept like babies, I highly recommend this room... More

We stayed here for one night and cannot complain about one aspect of our stay, the housekeepers were very welcoming nothing was too much trouble. Spotlessly clean. The breakfast was served at a restaurant at the end of the street and was faultless again staff very welcoming. We would stay here again and would recommend to family and friends

We stayed in the Oscar Wilde Suite; beautiful furnishings & in close proximity to all the bars, restaurants, & points of interest in the area (Trinity College). Staff was very accommodating with holding our luggage until check-in time. Would recommend staying here.

Like others have mentioned, this is right in the Temple Bar area. Parking is a few blocks away. It's loud deep into the night, but only if you have the windows open. It's plenty quiet with them closed. Our room looked even better than its online pictures. It was large and had a new modern bath with lots of stone... More

We stayed in June at the Merchant House and had a fantastic weekend. Our suite was called the James Joyce Suite and overlooked Eustace Street. There was plenty of amenities supplied in the room (free tea, coffee, bottled water) which was great. Granted, there was some noise during the night from outside but not enough to put us off staying... More

The Merchant House is a great place to stay for touristing in Dublin. It's a short walk from the airport bus (very convenient), walking distance to many of the key sites and right in the heart of Temple Bar. The room was very comfortable -- well appointed with a great bed (we were in the Yeats room).
