360 Degree Tours

The Merchant Hotel is located in the former Ulster Bank building originally constructed in 1858. This Victorian masterpiece is full of period features and has been renovated sympathetically to not only preserve but actually enhance these features. It is difficult to experience the splendour and opulence of our bedrooms, bars and restaurants without visiting the hotel, however, our 360 degree photo tours give you an excellent taste of what you’ll experience when you arrive.
