This is a church which has been converted into a hotel. We had book a junior suite however when we checked in they didn't have one ready so upgraded us to a full suite. Sweet! A beautiful room and within walking distance to most of the attractions downtown. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the room was very... More

Excellent hotel all around. Wish I had gotten everyone's first names from the front desk, dining room and housekeeping because they were all first class. The room was beautiful, clean and spacious. Fastest hotel elevators I've ever seen, delicious breakfasts, free WiFi, great location for walking to parks, pubs, local attractions and public transportation. Many thanks to all the hotel... More

This was my second experience with the Davenport. Both times, I have found the facilities excellent, the staff very attentive but not intrusive and the location perfect for making my way around the central city.

With the Davenport Hotel being a 4 star hotel myself and my partner thought we had got a fantastic deal staying for two nights through secretescapes.com. Although this was not the case. There was nothing particularly fantastic about this hotel at all except maybe for the very helpful and friendly staff. The room we stayed in was clean but small.... More

4 nights at hotel. I kind of have mixed emotions but not sure exactly why as you see below. Location is great but quiet. This section of Dublin just doesn’t have the “buzz” when you walk out the door, yet everything is close by. The main entrance to Trinity, Grafton Street, and the Green are 8-10min walk. Merrion Sq. is... More

We loved the Davenport on Merrion Street! It has the feel of an older hotel, but up to date, clean and quiet. The neighborhood was quiet, and there is a wonderful pub across the street that served delicious food. Within walking distance to Dublin Castle, Trinity College - and at breakfast they served the most delicious homemade yogurt pots! The... More

Although the phone-booking clerk was a bit brusque our reception at the O'Callaghan Davenport couldn't have been better and the really friendly Catalan receptionist was one of the best things about our stay.

Loved the location as we were in the city center, yet it was a very quiet hotel. The rooms were very nice and again quiet. We had lunch in the hotel one day and it was good, but could get great meals elsewhere. We did have breakfast there and it was always good. The only issue is plumbing, but this... More
