We stayed here for three nights and found it to be a traditional hotel that celebrates its original features. It is in a central location and very close to the hop-on, hop-off tourist bus stop. Our room was generously sized and spotlessly clean with a large, comfortable bed. All essential appliances are in working order, but perhaps a small fridge... More

We really enjoyed our stay! We arrived early in the morning, the desk held our bags and then arranged an early check in for us. Most appreciated. Breakfast was great with a very attentive staff. Great coffee! The bar even allowed a late night pizza delivery for us :). So close to Grafton St. and Trinity College! We loved it!

The O'Callaghan Davenport is one of four O'Callaghan hotels in Dublin, three of which are in very close proximity of one another. The hotel is about 30 to 40minutes from the airport and well located in the centre of Dublin, certainly walking distance to Trinity College and some great nightlife. The hotel is quite stately with friendly staff, rooms are... More

We stayed here recently for a few days after an adventure trip. Our room was fine; definitely clean, a nice bathroom, decent shampoo amenities. The carpeting was the only thing that really needed attention (and the tacky hair dryer on the wall, but).The hall carpets were definitely upscale. The tv was terrible.
