“Excellent food, unique place”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We've made a point to stop here every time we're in Dublin. Love the seafood chowder and the lamb stew. The pint of Guinness and (huge) bowl of stew is an excellent deal! Staff is always friendly, prices good, decor unique.

“Faulty Towers!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Stayed there just one night with a group of 17 students. They overcharged us, there was water leaking from the ceiling in 2 rooms, it said "full Irish breakfast" but you had to choose just one dish from a menu. Unfriendly staff, difficult to sleep as they played music very loud until 0200.

I forgot my toiltry bag (with my engagement ring, golden...) and mailed them the day after, but they didn´t send it even if promised to pay in advance.
Anyway, it was cheaper then most of the other alternatives, but you get what pay for!

“Hoai & Tara/Florida”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

My families and I wanted to go to the Brazen head pub, but it was too crowded. So we decided to go to O'Shea's merchant. The food there was fantastic and reasonable price. The employee's there were awesome by helping each other out bringing our food and drinks. If you decided to go there, ask for Maura.

I had a very nice and pleasant stay at this hotel. It was very reasonably priced and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were immaculate as well as the linens. The staff is very nice and helpful.
