The O'Callaghan Hotel at St. Stephens Green is in short walking distance to the trendy Grafton Street and also Temple Bar. It is directly across the road from the lovely St. Stephens Green park.
The Hotel itself is nice and comfortable and also quite clean. The rooms are fine and the TV has cable channels. Our room on the fourth floor was in close proximity to the buiding next door and directly in line with a window of the said building meaning we had to have the curtins drawn at all times or else the people could peer in. Worse - the said building was being renovated and we were woken up at around 8am each morning therefore no chance of a sleep in - very disappointing however it was the only disappointing aspect of the stay.
The staff were helpful and accommodating. They charge for internet use (wireless or wired) however you can pay by the hour (0.85 Euro) meaning it isn't too expensive to jump online for a while to check your emails and what not.
All in all a pleasant stay in a nice part of Dublin.
- 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
