This hotel is in a great location walking distance to many sites. The front desk staff was so accommodating. We were a family (9) with staggering arrival times and wanting to do as much as we could together. The staff was superb in obtaining reservations etc. The hotel is quiet clean and quaint. The first night we ate at the... More

I wanted to try one of the O'Callaghan hotels and decided to go for the davenport (because of the price and one of the others was booked out). It was a beautiful room and very central location. Looking at one of the other reviews I'm wondering if i maybe got a free upgrade because my room had shampoo, shower gel... More

This hotel is in serious need of remodeling the rooms with outdated furniture & bedding. I actually stayed in the hotel in one room, went to southern Ireland, then returned to The Davenport in a different room. Both rooms looked like they had children's bunk beds. They had comforters covered in a sheet, but there was no separate sheet for... More

The Daveport is centrally located in Dublin. It is very clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is a block away Fromm Trinity College and the Book of Kells, as well as many other major attractions. We arrived early Sunday morning and the room was not ready, so we walked a block away and went... More

This hotel is fantastic and one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The location is great and the breakfast is absolutely delicious. Staff are all great and very friendly. The hotel is within walking distance to The Temple Bar area where there are lots of great bars with traditional music. Also close to Trinity College and Dublin... More

a well located hotel with friendly staff. i think we were unlucky with a room at front of hotel which was a little noisy. have stayed in hotel in past. it is coming due for redecoration. this would not stop me using it again for a short break.

Booked on the basis of the reviews and pictures of the frontage (and price) this was a great hotel to go for. At first, we were a little concerned about location, which is central but with a little walk off the main drag, once we got our bearings, we found this hotel ideally placed. The reception staff were fabulous (especially... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Davenport. We arrived just before noon and were able to check into a room right away. The Front Desk was friendly and efficient. Our room was nice and quiet, well appointed and comfortable. It was only a 5 minute walk to Trinity / shopping. Breakfast, which is served until about 10:30 am, was... More
