The O'Callaghan Stephen's Green was our first hotel on our recent Ireland tour. On the positive side, the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable and it is an easy walk to the center of the city and all the great sights and pubs. After that, it's all down hill. The hot water was scalding hot and almost impossible to control, soap bars were microscopic, air conditioning non-existent and hotel staff not very helpful. The decor is pretty unimpressive and the breakfasts adequate. Please note, if you have a CPAP unit or any other medical equipment you need to plug in at night, you can't plug it in next to the bed as the hotel has a low-wattage setup for bed lamps and non-standard sockets. (They appeared to be the same as India sockets). The hotel was able to provide an extension cord long enough to reach half way around the room. One other hotel on our trip had the same setup. Additionally, I had a shirt I left in a hotel in England sent to this hotel. Package tracking said it was received but they could not find the shirt at the Stephens Green.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel comprises of two magnificently restored Georgian buildings, with a heritage of great historical and cultural importance to Ireland. One was home to the great Irish playwright, George Fitzmaurice, while 4 Harcourt Street was the birthplace of Lord Edward Carson, one of the founders of Northern Ireland and a central figure in Ireland’s Unionism movement. Entering through the tasteful reception area, guests will be struck by the stunning glass atrium, filling the lobby with natural light and overlooking the idyllic Stephen’s Green park. The stylish interior design throughout the hotel, with wood panelling and soft leather furnishings sitting alongside Georgian stucco ceilings and elegant fireplaces, beautifully showcases the fusion of old and new. George Fitzmaurice is honoured in the hotel through our bar and restaurant, which are named after two of his plays. The ‘Magic Glasses’ Bar is an opulent, comfortable bar where local businesspeople and visitors alike regularly meet over a coffee or drink, while the ‘Pie Dish’ Bistro, set in the bright atrium and the inner rooms of the Georgian houses, serves the finest in contemporary Irish and international cuisine. Located on the first floor, the Georgian library has a charming old-world feel, where you can sit in 19th century surrounds, featuring open fireplaces and chandeliers – an ideal way to unwind over a pre-dinner drink. A gymnasium is available for the exclusive use of residents, while the business centre is open 24 hours, with a secretarial service available for the business guest. Flexibility and choice is a core value of O’Callaghan Hotels. Guests can use the facilities and services of any Dublin O’Callaghan Hotel and have the account conveniently billed back to your room. ... more less
