We stayed here for our second visit to Dublin and it was a great hotel with a fantastic location. Practically across the street from the Book of Kells and within walking distance to Grafton St and about a 30 min walk to the Guiness Storehouse. Rooms didn't have hairdryers or clocks, but as we arrived at 5:30 am and they... More

O'Callagan's Mont Clare is a cool old Hotel near Merrion Square, which is worth a strolling tour. Accommodating staff, easy walk from Trinity College area and Grafton Street and all the liveliness that come with those wreas. Goldsmith's Restaurant onsite is excellent and has delicious breakfasts.

Not the fanciest or most up to date hotel but the staff was very helpful and super friendly. We have a small child and they were quick to set up a crib. We also ran into problems with the electric outlets not working, then blowing the fuse, and they jumped to fix whatever we had going on. The front desk... More

The first impression upon walking in the front door was beautiful and classy. Upon entering the Junior suite the impression changed to it's grand but dated, it looked worn but comfortable. The room has a couch and chair, coffee table, two chairs, table and desk/entertainment stand, there are two sided full mirror/closet with two safes inside. The biggest thing they... More

The Mont Clare is situated in my favourite part of Dublin. Excellent location for Grafton Street and St Stephen's Green area. The hotel is in an old building and is getting close to needing some refurbishment. Our room on the second floor was spacious and very clean. The breakfast selection was very good, more than the usual irish breakfast. The... More

Lovely accommodations, from the rooms to the restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff, we arrived in Dublin very early, but they were able to get us into rooms early so that we could tidy up before heading out on the town. They were also very helpful with information and suggestions that made our stay even more wonderful. Will definitely stay... More

The hotel is nice and clean. A bit older with character, but not in bad shape at all. The staff were very accomodating in letting us check in early (overnight flight with a 4 year old). Good location in a very walkable city. The price was good considering how expensive this city can be. Recommend. It was also very quiet... More
