... and sandals that were paper thin. If I had had hiking clothes on that day I would have never left.
That night we went out for the first time in Ireland and met some nice Irish people (I think it was someone's birthday) who instantly took us in and invited us to a place where drinks were supposedly very cheap. Little did we know this place was called "Club Hell" and was filled with Gothic Irish people and no attractive men in my opinion ...

Lots to see and do today in Dublin. City Sightseeing Tour to get us where we need to go. First stop Christ Church Cathedral and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Shopped on Dame Street and walked around Trinity College. Jumped back on the bus for some more sites. Were asked to keep it down on the bus by some American woman, wish I had a camera for the looks on Stacie and Joy's face. Drove through Phoenix Park which can fit Central Park within it. The US Ambassador's house and ...
... by a brand new group of people, the Russians. I managed to climb my way back to my seat and listened as the group of about 9 men laughed and yelled in a language very foreign to me. They were friendly though in offering to share their beer with us and keeping us in the conversation for a little while, until they switched back to Russian and we lost track of the conversation. But they were having a good time and it was very entertaining to listen ...
... stores, bakeries, cheesemongers, flower markets, and adorable shops of all sorts galore! We stopped into the Powerscourt town house, and shopped a bit in George's Arcade. Then we ventured past a few left over beers in the street to temple bar market for a late lunch of venison stew, a duck confit pie, and oysters! Shakira and oysters? Shuck-Ira!!! Fi, Emma's sister then met up with us and we ...

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
