This hotel is in perfect walking distance for a Dublin vacation. The service from all of the staff we encountered was very helpful and always warm. Our check-in process was as smooth as could be, considering we were a party of six that booked through a travel agency. Although the attendant was having issues with finding our booking, she did...

Very pleasant hotel next to Trinity College and at a hop on hop off bus stop. Rooms were clean and staff was pleasant and helpful. One room did have a horrible view of an inside wall though, so be sure to request an outside room.

O'Callaghan Davenport was a very good choice for us. This was our first time visiting Ireland and the location was in walking distance of almost everywhere we wanted to go in Dublin. The hop on hop of bus was probably 100 yards away. We requested early check in and when we arrived at 8:30 AM after a long travel itinerary... More

My three sisters and I arrived at this hotel after a transatlantic flight that landed in Dublin in the early morning. When we checked in, the very friendly and helpful staff member suggested that we have breakfast at a local spot and come back to the hotel for a possible early check-in. True to her word, both rooms were available... More

Was leaving too early for the complimentary (delicious) breakfast. Without asking, staff packed up a breakfast with hot coffee and rushed it to my cab as I was leaving for the airport. 6.a.m. Room was available when i arrived.

We really loved this hotel. I travel extensively on business and see a wide variety of hotels. This is in an older building with good sized rooms for the US, much less Europe. Our room on the 6th floor had what appeared to be a queen bed, a twin bed and a sitting area with two full size armchairs and... More

This hotel was selected for us by a travel agency. It's a quaint hotel in a great location, especially close to Trinity College and a Hop On Hop Off bus stop. The rooms are comfortable with good beds. The staff was friendly and seemed eager to make our stay enjoyable. There are 2 things you need to be aware of... More

The positives - It's centrally located for the usual sites, Guinness and Jameson Tours. The bed was comfortable and water pressure in shower was incredible. The hotel lobby is nice. The room needs to be updated, a full gut. If your looking for a historic hotel, then this may be it. For the money spent a night, look elsewhere.

My best friend and I just spent six days in Dublin at the Davenport Hotel and were grateful that our CIE Tour (also terrific) recommended this hotel as a place to stay. Great location, food, service, rooms, staff and atmosphere. Our room was clean, convenient, up to date regarding, wifi, electrical and lighting but still charming without being old fashion.... More
