Our original choice was the O’Callaghan Mont Clare, but due to low occupancy numbers at some of the O’Callaghan Hotels over Christmas the O’Callaghan Reservation Manager proposed us to switch to the O’Callaghan Davenport Hotel. This turned out to be an excellent move. During our three days Christmas stay the hotel personnel operated highly professional, we enjoyed the excellent breakfast... More

Stayed here for five days. Excellent location with warm and welcoming staff. The hotel is in a convenient, central location within walking distance to all the sites and bars. Good value for money. Free wireless, comfortable and spacious rooms and breakfast and newspapers on site. The public areas are somewhat faded - worn carpets and stained seats, which is a... More

Great stay as always. Perfect location for a city center stay. Breakfast is a little pricey but overall it's such a comfortable hotel. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. Excellent staff, from the front desk to the wait-staff, every staff member that we encountered was incredibly attentive and friendly. A lovely stay and cannot recommend highly enough this hotel!

Very impressed with the hotel.Grafton Street/St Stephens Green a mere 10 mins walk away.Nice reception staff.Extremely clean.Lovely rooms,comfortable beds. Only negative I can give is the breakfast wasnt fantastic,the sausages and pudding appeared barely cooked,but saying that,a good variety of breakfast items available-buffet style with hot food,cereals,fruit,croissants etc.Would stay here again for sure.

We stayed at the O'Callaghan Davenport Hotel at the beginning and end of our tour for a total of three nights. Rooms were adequate, the furniture a bit worn, but the rooms were very clean, quiet, and well maintained. Desk staff very attentive, courteous, helpful, and pleasant. The bar/pub was very nice, again with a very attentive staff. Location was... More

Stayed four nights, started each evening in the bar/restaurant, had to get wait staff attention every time you wanted something and it routinely took twenty mins to get what you asked for. Food was fine, but they really need to coach their staff on what good service means

This hotel was superb. Location to metro Dublin in walking distance. Old world charm and a great restaurant. Try the Irish stew! I bet you can't finish it. The staff was very friendly and knew where everything was and to do.
