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

Walls are thin and saw many people in...

Really enjoyed my stay there , hotel is close to everything and well located . Staff are welcoming, a well managed place - the food was genuine irish , generous portions of quality fares, pints served with a smile 😀but it is the music and craic that sets it apart - would return - keep up the good work

We stayed at O'Shea's Merchant as part of our New Year's trip through London and Ireland, so when we found a fairly popular hotel a few weeks before our flight, we were fairly excited. Upon our arrival, the sweet bartender/manager was able to provide an early check-in, although she warned us that the room had not been pre-heated because of...

Right at the Quay for long touristy walks and far enough from the noisy Temple Bar to have a nice rest. Walking distance to everything and close to a bus line from/to airport. Friendly staff. We were able to leave our luggage there till time to leave for the airport.
