The Merchant House was built in 1720, originally a Merchants House and very early Georgian . The building was extensively restored to its former glory in 2006. An award winning restoration received much acclaim when finished as its 'Dutch' type roof is very unique for a building in Dublin. The upper floors were extended / soundproofed and luxury Guest Suites were provided. Emphasis on conserving heat and the reduction of noise from outside was dealt with. Sound proof internal windows were fitted in the entire building thus giving our Guests a comfortable sound sleep. Temple Bar outside may be vibrant, but our Guests enjoy a relaxing sleep in their comfortable cosy king size beds.
As a ardent traveler myself, I like to stay in quality , spacious and luxurious accommodation when I travel abroad. When the opportunity came up to purchase this very early Georgian building in the center of Dublin city. I thought it an ideal spot to convert the upper floors to luxury Guest Suites. Its first owner was a well known 'Merchant' in banking circles with a stately home in the Country. Luxury Guest Suites were installed and our reputation for affordable 5 star accommodation was forged.
The Merchant House is situated in the Temple Bar area of Dublin City. This area is over 1000 years old and is the 'Cultural' capitol of Dublin. Temple Bar is a Bohemian area, festooned with small Shops, Eateries, Restaurants, Markets, Clubs and Theatre' s. Renowned for it Bar, night life and vibrancy . The well known 'Ark' for children is one minute away from The Merchant House. Restaurants are in abundance offering huge choices at moderate prices. Temple Bar is a 'busy' area , well lit, CCTV everywhere and relatively secure as police patrol constantly. Yes, it is vibrant, sometimes noisy but buzzing with atmosphere. The Temple Bar area is fully serviced by all modes of transport to and from Dublin Airport. At The Merchant House we have installed 'Soundproof' windows so our Guests can retreat from the outside 'buzz' and enjoy the luxury of their Suites.
