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.

My husband and I were on a whirlwind 2 week vacation in Europe, ending with 4 final days in Dublin. This hotel was the best we stayed in for several reasons. a) for the last 2 nites of our stay, our son came over from Edinburgh to join us. They gave us a free upgrade to a larger room (for... More

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.

The hotel looks beautiful superficially but the creaky lift, lamps that don't work, hair dryer that cut out & weird phone in the bathroom let it down. Nevertheless the reception staff are lovely & friendly, the place is clean & quiet & the location is brilliant. Overpriced a bit for what it offers apart from location.

Great people great service and a perfect location for exploring the city. The local pubs are all in reasonable walking distance. Mark the bartender in the restaurant/pub in the hotel was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area and sights to see.

I like hotel and surroundings very much! Rooms are very clean and spatious, view from room is excellent (viewing on Merrion Sq. park), close vicinity to Oscar Wilde house (just across the sreet!), vicinity of Clare st and Nassau st.

The hotel was easy to find from O'Connell Street and is not too far from all the main attractions. It is pretty close to Trinity College and the bank. The neighbourhood is quiet (for Dublin) and we were never hassled. It is a nice area with the park across the street and the ability to walk almost everywhere in Dublin.... More
