This is one of the hotels we stayed at during a CIE tour called "Jewels of Ireland". All of the hotels they selected were excellent. All had a full breakfast buffet added, some slightly better than others. We were here for three nights in a King size bedroom. For breakfast, you could order poached or fried eggs -- or just... More

We were very happy staying at this hotel for our first time in Dublin. The location is a bit off the main action area, which we liked. It is ideal for access to Pearse Station, which we took advantage of, taking a few hours to go to Howth. The Hop on/Off bus stop is a block away. The hotel restaurant,... More

I have stayed in a lot of hotels around Europe, most weeks I am away from home on business in The UK. My visits to Dublin are pleasure though. I have stayed here several times before. Last year when I stayed the only minor gripe I could find was that the free WiFi was only available for a short period... More

I stayed in this hotel as part of a bus tour. It was a good call! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel has a great location by Merrion Square. The breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. I was delighted to discover that the hotel has a small but suitable fitness room. I recommend the hotel.

The O'Callaghan Davenport Hotel is a comfortable, quiet, efficient hotel about a 10 to 15 minute walk from Temple Bar and no more than 5 minutes from Trinity College. It is in a quiet corner of the town yet two or three of the main museums and galleries are also situated within a 10 minute walk, so its location is... More

This hotel is ideally located on Merrion Square. It is within 5 mins walking distance to pubs, restaurants and shops. Last Saturday night we had a group booking for 8 persons and it changed to 9 last minute. The hotel was full and it was proving impossible to find alternative accommodation in Dublin. I asked (Hugh I think) at reception... More

The Hotel is located in the center of Dublin in walking distance from many of the city recommended attractions (including Temple Bar street...). The reception process was good and efficient. The staff is polite and willing to help. The room is big enough with a flat TV and coffee making options. The view from the room is not great but... More
