We stayed at the O'Callaghan Davenport on our first visit to Dublin. Location was very good however we found a couple of discrepancies with the website. Firstly our room did not have a safety box in it, secondly the Aircoach (transfer) did not stop next to the hotel, or if it did we did not find the stop. Told by Aircoach that the closest stop was Kildare Street on the way there and Dawson Street on the way back. Would also like to comment that the Gym was not at all what we had hoped for. It had obviously previously been a room and had been converted into a Gym, and not very well in our opinion. The Air Conditioning was pointless, it was cooler in the corridor than the "gym". There were no towels to use and we had to change the water bottle as this was empty. We found the staff very accommodating when we needed to approach them, however after asking for poached eggs on our first morning and getting fried eggs, then on the second morning asking for poached eggs again and getting them some 10-15 mins later, then on the third morning asking for one poached egg and getting two, you did begin to wonder if they actually listened to you. That said, Dublin is a lovely city and we would certainly visit the City again. Not sure that this hotel would be top of our list for a re-book.
