  • Group of friends

    The girl who greeted us when we arrived was very nice, friendly and efficient. She had our room for us very quickly. I had requested a twin room and the room had a double and single bed.. Perfect! The room was basic enough but clean and had everything that you need. Tea and coffee etc. a large bathroom with bath/shower and toiletries and the water was piping hot. We had a bar snack before getting the luas into O.Connell st (a 2 minute walk to the stop) the food was gook and the breakfast excellent, We were attending a gig in Vicar st and as the hotel is only a short walk from here it really suited.. I will stay here again especially if I am going to a gig there.

    There was a function on in the lounge when we returned to the hotel about 1.30am. It was packed with people and the band continued for another hour, It didnt bother us.. We joined them, but may have bothered some people who simply wished for bed

  • Group of friends

    Great to be within easy walking distance to Temple Bar and shopping areas, buses. Liked being able to walk downstairs at night after a busy day of sight seeing and sit in the bar and listen to music and visit with local folks.

  • Couple

    We liked the way we could have our breakfast till midday,most hotels stop serving at 10am or 11am.

    The loud noise coming from our bathroom something to do with the water I think.And the waitresses/hostess wernt poilite or friendly.

  • Group of friends

    We had a wonderful time at O'Sheas Merchant. Ideal base for a shopping spree in Dublin city centre. Very confortable bedrooms. Had a lovely meal in the bar. Great place to go if you are a lover of music and dancing. Also sport - especially G.A.A. We will definately be back.

  • Older travelers

    It's excellent location, within walking distance of most attractions and the price, including a full breakfast, was very good value. The staff were friendly.

    When the room was cleaned during our stay, a used coffee cup was not replaced and the bathroom bin was unemptied. The pillows remained ruffled. There is no reception area/desk and no room to store your bags if you arrive before check-in time or after check-out to pick them up later. Our room was on the streeet and was noisy from traffic, as the window had to remain opened due to lack of air-conditioning. These rooms are rooms above a pub which is fine by me but the added facilities outlined above would greatly enhance the experience.

  • Group of friends

    Staff were very friendly, room comfortable and centrally located. Breakfast excellent.

  • Family with children

    Room was reasonable. Included breakfast was very good. Location was great - near Temple Bar and Christ Church. Couldn't hear the late night music below.

  • Group of friends

    Great location at this price. Authentic Irish Pub experience... Whch means it is noisy at night, but that's made very clear when you book- and just what we were looking for. Staff really helpful in sorting out the best room for my Dad to reduce the number of steps he had to climb. Breakfasts very good too.

  • Group of friends

    The food was nice. Room was comfortable but very basic. Our room was away from the music so we were'nt disturbed too much by it.

    Lots of pigeons outside our bedroom on ledges which may have accounted for the smell. Had to keep window closed. Furniture v old fashioned and in no way modern.

  • Group of friends

    Fair location

    Me and my friend spent one weekend at this hotel and wouldn t choose it again. Staff was unhelpful and grumpy all the time, check in was one hour late, hot and noisy room, fire alarm early sunday morning, poor breakfast and so on. The only good thing was its location within walking distance of downtown and airport bus. Would not recommend it to anyone.

  • Group of friends

    I liked the breakfast

    It is not a hotel, more like a pub with rooms above it. We were outbooked to apartments which we were happy with as they were modern. Be warned though this is not a hotel!!!

  • Single

    Great bar with live music and great staff

  • Couple

    Proximity to downtown Dublin

    Extremely small room, very noisy with street noise/partiers. Difficult access (no elevator and front door locked 24/7). Room was dirty and dingy.

  • Couple

    The hotel is basic as you would expect, bring your own toiletries unless you do not mind using Pears soap. Its a hotel for young people who don't mind loud music. We enjoyed the band downstairs but if you are looking for quiet weekend away this hotel is not for you.


  • Couple

    - may be the price but that is a big maybe

    rooms were not up to standard, rather dirty and worn out
