Good Hotel, we enjoyed the stay for 4 days. Great staff. Great location. Close to downtown. Only Breakfast is not acceptable. Food in the bar is great, but expensive. Overall we liked it, and we will come back.

Stayed the Davenport hotel one night in November for a friends birthday, as part of a Translink travel/hotel deal. I was very impressed by this hotel, it is not the Shelbourne or Merrion but I really couldnt fault the hotel or the service. Large rooms ( most with no views due to construction ) but for one night this was... More

Attractive hotel in a good location. Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars. Room was average,nothing in particular to mention. Junior suit is not large. No parking at the hotel but a few short streets away you use their secure, locked car park at 12 euros a day, pay on exit. The food is expensive and the drinks astronomical... More

The Davenport Hotel in Dublin has been our place to stay for some time. It's old world , quiet charm. couple with modern amenities make this O'Callaghan property ideal. The included breakfast buffet is superb. The central location is perhaps the best quality. Though the area is relatively quiet; a few blocks walk brings you into everything. Grafton St., O'Connell...

Having come from London, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the room. The room was spacious and the bathroom had plenty of room. The shower worked well as did the elevators which moved quickly. The hotel is within walking distance from Trinity College, shopping and pubs and the staff was friendly and helpful. We did not...

The O'Callahan-Davenport was our first hotel during our trip to Ireland and we couldn't have had a better introduction. Just steps away from Merrion Square Park, we were able to enjoy a leisurely walk around the area and see the sights this historic neighborhood had to offer. The staff is friendly and most helpful. The dining room was excellent. We... More

We stayed here on the last night in Ireland, following a 8 night castle tour of Ireland. We were a little overwhelmed by all the people at this hotel for their annual Christmas Bazaar but it really didn't interfere with anything. We quickly left for the "Hop On, Hop Off" city tour, which we were able to catch just a... More
