After staying in a number of hotels in this area of Dublin recently, we now choose the Mont Clare every time. The location of this hotel is excellent for any visitor, with many of Dublin's main attractions within a short walk and for those a little further away the hop on hop off bus stop is opposite the hotel.

Stayed 2 nights on business at recommendation of host. Super friendly staff helped with umbrella and electrical converter and made check-in, check-out a breeze. Can walk to many sights and restaurants. There was good wi-fi, but I can't recall if there was a charge for it. Would stay here again.

We recently stayed at the Mont Clare with our group tour. We enjoyed our service from Bernie in the restaurant. She was friendly and very attentive. We couldn't have asked for a better waitress. She made our morning bright! Also, the wait staff in the bar on the evening of Saturday, July 19, 2014 was great. We had a large... More

We chose this hotel because of its price point and location. Our booking was done online a few months before we arrived and we were glad we did this in advance because hotel availability was as scarce as hen's teeth. There is a restaurant but we did not eat there - did not look very busy anytime we passed through... More

Stayed at the mont clare for the weekend. Staff couldnt be more helpful. I have stayed in many hotels and this tops them all for the choice at breakfast. Room was just the perfect size for myself and my friend. Free wifi a bonus. Only a 10-15 minute walk from temple bar. Would definately recommend this hotel and would not... More

The OCallaghan MontClare was in a great location for everything we did in Dublin. The room was clean and nice, and the staff there - from the breakfast servers to the front desk - were very friendly, welcoming and showed us excellent customer service. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again on future trips.

That was what we thought of the couch in our "suite". It literally looked like it came out of a dumpster. I wouldn't let anyone go within a foot of it. The ceiling in the shower was so low my husbands head went thru the ceiling tile. Good location but terrible facilities.

This was a great choice for Dublin city center. In a quiet area. HOHO bus stop right across the street, also Merrion Square Park across the street. Walkable to Trinity College & to shopping, and to Georgian area.
