The Temple Bar district is just around the corner from our hotel so we joined the throng of tourists and locals and enjoyed the pub scene complete with musos playing traditional Irish stuff.
Dinner followed at La Caverna, an Italian restaurant staffed by a Romanian, a Pole and a chap ...

Second, my favourite, they brought along the "EMU" for raising your arm with your hand looking like an emu to direct the group if you're falling behind in the street walking tours...brilliant and quite hilarious!!
The hotel was very accommodating with providing this fussy vacationista's appetite. one of the more tasty of the Contiki meals of previous experience. The mushroom leek soup was definitely my ...

The branch of D’arcy’s I descend from lived for a time in Essex, England, and one of the direct line members, was Sir John Darcy, 1st Baron Darcy de Knayth (1280-1347).

There was a huge 'wedding' tree covered by Irish lace hankies that were sewn together. People were leaving their hankies tied to the base of the tree to be added later. Merry added her hankie to the collection. We then walked to the National Irish Museum. The museum traced the Irish history from BC, through ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Saint Stephen's Green Dublin
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.
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
