Hotel is a converted church. I found the room to be very functional and clean etc. It is in a very central location location which is well placed for Bars and Restaurants and sight seeing etc. Staff were very friendly. Had to work while I was there and the Wi-Fi was pretty good

We recently took a holiday in Ireland for 12 days. Traveling from America we arrived at the Dublin airport at 5:30 and took a taxi to the O'Callaghan Davenport. Of course our rooms were not ready, but we had no issues leaving our luggage at the front desk. The hotel is ideally located, just a short walk to Trinity College....

The outside of the Hotel is really nice and in fitting with this area of the City. The reception is smart and welcoming and the staff were very helpful. I checked in at around 5pm so the place was not too busy. The guy at reception kept me talking longer then necessary but it was funny when he told me...

The rooms are nice. The bed is good firm and comfortable. The room was a little warm our first night but it had an opening window so all was good. We used the bus system and walking so the location was excellent as well.

We enjoyed this location in the city, the rooms are warm, so you need to keep the windows open, but the Gingerman below is quite loud. Rooms are clean, and lobby is wonderful, but rooms need an update. Shower was full pressure. Getting out of the parking garage was tricky, make sure to get it validated before you go get...

I stayed in the Davenport for 1night with my wife - if it had been longer than 1 night I would have asked for a full refund and found another Hotel. Firstly the full Hotel is very dated and in dier need of modernising and upgrading - the photos on the website make it seem way nicer than it actually...

The staff at this hotel were very very nice and the location is quiet central. The hotel itself was just okay in that, the rooms are quiet run down. The outside is magnificent but the hotel interior is shabby. Breakfast wasn't included in our stay but there was discounted parking. Average price for a Dublin hotel.

Hotel looks impressive and in same street as Oscar Wilde's house, near St Stephens Green. Rooms were large, beds comfortable, quiet location, walking distance to centre and main sights. Bathrooms a bit dated and shower disappointing trickle, (stopped working completely on last day, and we were offered another room to shower. Maintenance were quick though). Disappointed by lack of Irish...

Interesting building and the location on Merrion Square can't be beat. I would probably say a 3 1/2 star hotel, but the rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable. The shower needs a bit more pressure, but will get you clean and is hot, so that is all that counts. Not a bad place to stay and the service...
