Just dropped in for a quiet glass of wine and a scone with some friends. If you enjoy the smell of sewage and extremely poor service from multiple staff members definately a must! Even trying to find some one to pay for our wine was a struggle.

Overall we had a very good stay at O'Callaghans. We arrived quite late on Friday evening and check in was efficient and we were soon up in our rooms. The hotel is traditional rather than modern and the rooms are in that style as well. We were on the top floor (5th) so had a reasonable view out over the... More

This is a clean and comfortable traditional hotel which is in an excellent location within walking distance of main shopping street, Grafton Street, theatres, restaurants etc. and just more or less opposite the lovely Merrion Square park. The breakfast was excellent.

On face value this looks like a nice place but it need some proper attention. I don’t normally post pictures but was very tempted to, my room had a missing light shade, the TV was screwed to the wall so it couldn’t be angled towards the bed to view it, the picture was grainy at best, a hole in the...

They were very quick to help in any way that they could! (Even recommended a pizza delivery for dinner and placed our order for us!... More
