Our Story

The Inspiration behind The Merchant Room

“Having built, grown and perfected Tir Na Nog – now “The Tap Room” since 2004 the time was right for expansion. We had a luxury problem: Lack of space and flexibility.

The Tap Room being one big room was hard to accommodate quiz and sports at the same time, no room for private fuctions and having a pretty strict Traditional Irish Pub profile in The Tap Room we weren’t left with much “space” for diversity.

The Merchant Room offers us this! Private tastings, corporate events and big sports nights with 10 screens at the same time are now possible. Having raised our capacity from 150 to 500 inside and from 15 to 45 outside we can now accommodate every event, big or small – traditional or modern.

“We’re ready for the next 13 years”

Owner Andreas Ruigrok
