The Mercantile Hotel
The Mercantile is a tale of two halves. Standing proud on Dame Street, there's the hotel half, with its centrally located rooms, with downy mattresses to snuggle into after a day well spent seeing all of Dublin has to offer, and then there's the gig venue half. It's arguably one of the most intimate live music spots in town, and is a bastion in supporting young, up and coming acts. For a warm atmosphere, an opportunity to see someone honing their act before making it big, and still being a mere few yards from your sleeping quarters, you really can't do any better.
