We stayed in the Davenport the middle of March and loved it. The hotel is in the perfect location and easy walking distance to almost everything, including the bus to the airport. We had a morning arrival and were so happy to find our room ready when we checked in. The rooms are modest but very clean. The one problem... More

Ideally situated, we spent 3 nights here and found it very suitable for our needs. It's not flash but that is it's appeal. Clean basic rooms with very comfy beds and very friendly staff. Within easy walking distance of the city attractions and eateries. Reasonably priced and very cosy! Highly recommended.

We got a one night stay on offer for the bargain price of €60 and it was worth every penny. The hotel staff were helpful and very friendly (we found the Irish to be the friendliest people in the world). Despite arriving at the hotel way before check-in, our room had been allocated and was ready for our stay. The... More

Unfortunately our stay at the Davenport was not what I had hoped it would be. The staff were not overly friendly at reception. We booked the Junior suite and it was not very comfortable. The free Wifi which is advertised on it's website doesn't exist (you get one hour free). So this should be clearly advertised. €13.50 for a breakfast... More

the hotel is a perfect Centre hub if you're visiting Dublin area and plan to tour IRL. The taxi is only 20 mins from the Train station, I simply loved the breakfast Ireland style-It came with the stay and it was an excellent meal, and perfect way to begin every morning... A hot, fresh and authentic Irish meal. A 5... More

Very well located , just a stroll to some popular spots. No greeting from front desk as we passed several times. Difficult to get help in the pub- even though there were no more than 8 guests. Breakfast was definitely uninspired which is unusual for Ireland. Our room was dingy and the bathroom needed some help. The furnace seemed out... More

We stayed at the Davenport at the beginning of March, a group of us celebrating my Birthday, and the experience from check-in to check-out was first class. Throughout the stay, nothing was too much trouble, and the staff in all departments were extremely obliging. We arrived on an early morning flight, and were all checked in without any delay. The...
