Nice Hotel in Great Location
This is a nice, quiet hotel with a great location - a few blocks to Grafton St and St Stephen's Green and a few minutes to Trinity College. We stayed here on two separate nights - the first room was a little "tired" but our second room was great. Given the reasonable rate (by Dublin standards), this is an excellent choice for a stay in Dublin.
Very nice hotel
We stayed at the Mercer Hotel for 3 nights in early June. It was a fine hotel with good service. The rooms were well maintained tho the bathroom had a slight hint of mildew. There was a comfortable sitting area downstairs where one could have a pint and read the paper by the fireplace. The location was good, but a block or two away from the real center of the city. The staff was very helpful in arranging for transportation, tours and suggesting restaurants. I would stay here again as the prices were very reasonable.
Recently I stayed on a business visit to the Mercer hotel Dublin. The staff were most efficient and helpful while the food and beverages were of the highest standard both in preparation and presentation. I would highly recommend this Hotel for anyone looking to stay in Dublins city centre. It's location is ideal as it is in the heart of the city centre yet it is unique in that it's in a tranquil, peaceful and quiet area!
A very nice hotel
The Mercer Hotel is located on Lower Mercer St., Dublin 2.
I was here for two nights in Feb 2004. Although there is nothing special about Mercer St., the hotel is just around the corner from Grafton St.
The room was a good size and the staff was friendly and efficient. I would stay here again.
Great Hotel - Perfect location
This hotel was super nice!! I was greeted by freindly staff and a warm lobby. The room was fairly large, warm, and very clean decorated traditionally. The bathroom was very nice looking with black and white tile and very clean as well. Location is perfect as it is only a 2 minute walk from Graffton street, St. Stevens Green and other main Dublin attractions, however set away on a quite side street. I will most certainly return!!!!
Just returned from 4 night stay in hotel.....very central...clean enough...friendly but 'young' staff who seemed to be quite inexperienced...eg lights in room needed replaced....barman sent to do job and was "afraid to be electrocuted" left us bulb for DIY!!!!! very cold hotel so wrap up well!!!! breakfast average...cold sometimes and dining room used as thoroughfare to green room..as we had breakfast conference delegates passed and stared!!!!offputting.......pretty impersonal would not return...pity as excellent location.

Had reason to stay in the Mercer recently with friends. Being from the Dublin area I was aware of the larger hotels in the St. Stephens Green area but had not heard of the Mercer. This hotel proved to be a little gem. I cannot stress the enough the quality of the location. It is 1min walk from Grafton Street in the most exclusive area of central Dublin.
No need for taxis or buses.
As the friends I was staying with were from the UK I was naturally concerned that they had booked a hotel that I had not heard of. My stay made me proud to be Irish as I am always concerned by those who stay in the Temple Bar area with it's drunken stag parties which give a false view of the city.
The rooms were large and warm and tastefully decorated. Being on a side street there was no traffic noise. The hotel is located at the rear of one of the largest shopping malls in Dublin and my friends had secure carparking in the multi storey carpark with walkway through to the hotel.
My only concern in relation to the Mercer is that being from the Dublin area that I will rarely have an excuse to stay there.
Just returned from weekend break with friends staying at the Mercer, first impressions trendy clean hotel, centrally located but away from the noise and bustle. Rooms large, had to ask for toweling robes, heating in room broken, reluctantly given receptionist heater, changed to better room next day. Breakfast excellent but bar snacks unappertising, money refunded. Cleaners working after 5pm, friends room not cleaned by our return,declined access, so bed not made. All in all a nice hotel, friendly helpful staff, downside cold in all general areas. Would stay again but bring extra jumpers !
The rooms are a lot nicer than you would think from the non-impressive lobby. For the most part, I would recommend this hotel. It's nothing special, but the rooms were nice and the location is good. The hotel is pretty small. The breakfast was horrible. I'm a vegetarian and I basically was offered cereal as my complimentary breakfast. My husband, a carnivorne, was not impressed with the full Irish breakfas either.
Keep in mind, you are in Dublin...the hotel is not the attraction.
A real Gem
a real Gem, Great location right in the heart of the city, Staff were very friendly, helpful, service excellent, would highly recommend, great value too.

... Connell Street. We grabbed a quick breakfast and headed to Trinity for a campus tour and to see the Book of Kels. The campus is quite pretty – it really creates peace and quiet in the middle of a busy city. The Book of Kels was almost unbelievable, the ornately designed pages from over 1,200 years ago was so interesting to see. Maybe it was the rain, or maybe because we wanted to explore at our own speed, but we paused our ...

... we passed Merrion Square, a garden/park that only the rich people who lived in the area were given a key to back in the day. It now has the Oscar Wilde statue in it, but unfortunately it had closed for the day so we were locked out and forced to take photos from the fence. The statues in the memorial were good to see and made us realise how fortunate we really are. It has certainly reignited my desire to try and work with those less privileged at ...
