We booked the Davenport hotel as it is centrally located just off Merrion Square with al the sights and attractions within walking distance. The hotel has a classical façade and some nice features in the lobby / reception area. The room we were given was 'A junior suite' meaning a larger room, nothing else. The furnishing and décor, is of... More

I landed on this hotel through Name Your Own Price on Priceline. I've had pretty good luck staying in decent hotels throughout Europe using this option. This was no exception. The location was absolutely. You are very literally across the street from Trinity College. Its about a 2 minute walk to Merrion Square which is a lovely urban park. Its... More

One could not fault this hotel. It is very central to a lovely city. The building is old, but the hotel is very inviting. Lovely room, very clean. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast was just the best, and the staff were very attentive, happy to provide any request. Free internet in the lobby, always good. I recommend this hotel 100%. You... More

An older hotel but quite charming and lovely. It was very near Trinity College so while it was in a quiet part of town, it was within easy walking distance of most of the important places in Dublin. The beds were soooo comfortable, the pillows, too and the room was big and lovely. The bathroom was a nice size, too.... More

After a long flight our family of six adults and one toddler checked into the Davenport. The staff was more than helpful! They got us into our rooms early and had held a travel crib I had ordered for our trip. All rooms were spacious,, clean and comfortable. This hotel is located in a very nice area of Dublin near...

The location was great, the staff was wonderful and the rooms spotless. We came back everyday to an inviting pub with friendly service. Our first night, Danny gave us an introduction to the beers of Ireland, and made us something to eat, as well, after a long flight from the States.

My husband and I stayed here in transit on our vacation. It is a nice hotel. Nothing really exceptional about it. Fairly friendly, nice rooms, we did try to book an additional room and would have extended our stay if we were able to leave luggage but were not helped at all. The room was comfortable but the bed wasn't... More

Nothing bad to say about our stay here; perfect quiet location within walking distance of Grafton street (5mins) yet far enough away to be very peaceful, big comfy and clean room, pleasant staff and yummy breakfast! I would definitely recommend it!

Overall we had a very good experience at the Davenport. The reception people were very friendly and helpful in pointing us around Dublin and the hotel itself is in very close proximity to downtown, including being right on the hop-on hop-off bus tours. The rooms were about what you'd expect in an Irish hotel, if not a touch bigger than... More

Spent a night here with my partner the day I proposed to her. I had contacted the hotel beforehand and they offered a complimentary upgrade to one of their suites. The service from the staff was exceptional and them going that extra mile made the experience for us even more satisfying. The look of the hotel and the feeling of... More
