I went to this hotel when visiting Dublin for a football weekend. The location was good as it was walking distance to everything we needed to get to. We got a taxi to the hotel from the airport for about €25. The rooms were clean and the maids were in each day replacing bedding, towels and the tea and coffee... More

Stayed for 2 nights mid week. Receptionist was helpful with recommendations for places to eat and how to get to Temple Bar etc. Room, not the biggest, but was fine as we used it as a base to sleep and freshen up in. Hot breakfast was good, also good selection for those opting for a cold breakfast and service was... More

We started our ten-day visit at O'Callaghan Mont Clare. Wow. I love this old hotel with all the modern amenities. The staff were just wonderful at the front desk and at breakfast. It was conveniently located to Trinity and Temple Bar and museums. We were sorry they were booked on our last night in Ireland. Would have stayed again! Not... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The desk staff were all friendly and helpful, giving directions and hints on where to get forgotten supplies. The interior architecture is striking with lots of molding and beautiful windows. The room itself was small but comfortable. The AC didn't actually keep the room cool so we slept with the window open.... More

The hotel is in a GREAT location, which is always my priority when traveling. Many restaurants and sights are in walking distance. I traveled with 2 women and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. The bus tours of Dublin pick up/drop off very close to the hotel. The room and bathroom was average size for a European hotel. Bed... More
