This was the hotel Windstar Cruises used for our July 2014 Dublin-to-Edinburgh pre-cruise extension. Excellent location within easy walk of Trinity College, shopping, Temple Bar, parks, museums, hop-on-hop-off bus stop. Hotel has some nice classic touches, but it's looking pretty tired around the edges (worn furniture, etc.). Nice "standard" room with comfy king bed and great housekeeping. Although advertised "air... More

Irish welcoming and stylish rooms. Good for a couple willing to visit Dublin. Just aside the Oscar Wilde house (now an American school) and at the corner of Marrion square it is at walking distance from Trinity College (to be visited absolutely with an extraordinary Library, do not miss the Book of Kells) Not far from Grafton street for high...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, and were made to fee welcome by the staff. The hotel is located in the heart of Dublin with easy access to most attractions in Dublin. The rooms were nice and large, but perhaps a bit dated. The morning breakfast was delicious, but perhaps a bit pricey. We enjoyed our stay... More

I stayed as part of a large group over a busy weekend in July. The location is great, walking distance into the city centre, Grafton St - 10 mins, Temple Bar 15 mins but still has the feel of a quieter location. The parks of Merrion Square and St Stephen's Green are a stones throw away. Only ate Breakfast which... More

Had Sunday evening meal in Presidents Bar on Davenport Hotel with 4 children (under 8) after being at local street festival in Merrion Square. Fantastic menu, delicious food, great service and in and out in under one and a half hours with 4 very happy kids who want to know when can we go back. They loved the (huge) battered... More

Stayed here as part of a large group. This hotel accommodates a lot of groups. The location is good, within easy walking distance of plenty of pubs, as well as shopping and Dublin highlights such as Trinity College. The rooms were nice, but probably due for an update, as many of them had minor problems - little things that didn't... More

The staff at this hotel were friendly and most helpful. The room was well appointed and very clean. The location is excellent for a visit to Dublin. The food and bar areas are very comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent. I recommend the Davenport highly.

I arrived early. All staff very helpful. Very good quality service at all levels. I agree with off-street comment for quiet, mine was. Great shower, often a problem with other hotels. My SOLE GRUMBLE is the use of an air freshner in the aircon. I will book this hotel again.

Great location for seeing all of Dublin. Close to shopping, pubs, tour buses, Trinity College and other attractions. Staff was very accomodating. Nice bar area and breakfast room. Only disappointment was the fitness area.
