On foot:

The Mercantile Bar is located at 28 Dame Street, one of the main streets in Dublin, so if you are staying in the city centre the best way to get here is by foot. The Mercantile is 1-2 mins walk from The Ha'penny Bridge, Trinity College & Dublin Castle in the very centre of the City. See the map above for its location.

Dubliners are very friendly people so they'll be glad to give you directions. Once you are at the Mercantile just meet our guides at the door.
