My daughter and I stayed at the Davenport Hotel in May 2006. It is a lovely old hotel in the heart of Dublin. The location was great! Near Merrion Square and Temple Bar areas. We walked everywhere during our stay, down to Grafton St. and to O'Connell St., stopping by the GPO and crossed the bridge over the Liffey. The hotel room was nice, with good comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. I love the tea with real cups and saucers, none of that styrofoam stuff. The breakfast was delicious! It really started the day off in a lovely way and kept us satisfied until the afternoon. The hotel staff was very nice and even got us into the room as soon as we arrived from the airport. Good thing too, because we were dog tired. I had asked for a quiet room on one of the top floors and that is what we received. Super time!
My daughter wants to do a semester at the Trinity College so I am sure we will be back!
Only suggestion I have is to include some decaf tea bags in the room.
Thank you, Davenport!
