I stayed 4 nights and everything was ok. Very good location, great service and nice building. Haven't enjoyed the food of the hotel. Nice staff, very friendly. I paid for the internet but it was not so expensive and the speed was ok. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone who plans a trip to Dublin.

Hotel has a great location right near the park and a short walk to shopping and lot's of sites. Public transportation very close. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Just an overall pleasant stay. We would definitely book here again.

Room Tip: Some exec rooms have a big balcony overlooking the park. Really lovely!

If you want culture, atmosphere, great service, very nice Irish food, and enjoy listening to the pleasant low key lull of happy people, then this is the hotel for you. You will rub shoulders with politicians, business folk, Irish relaxing, having a special celebratory meal with family and friends ... it's all there .... whether you eat in the dining/bar or the restaurant you'll be given generous servings of hearty Irish fare. The rooms are excellent, spacious, comfortable beds, everything spotless. Taxis always at the ready outside. You are in walking distance of so many treats - Trinity College - Museum - fabulous park - Oscar Wilde's house plus his statue in the park, The Mansion House, shops, pubs.. you can catch a free bus and see much, much, more. The O'Callaghan Davenport has underground car parking if required. It is a significant heritage building, originally a church dating back to 1863 so if you like combining heritage with elegance, comfort with style and a warm welcome then stay here.

Room Tip: I stayed in different rooms on different visits - all the same excellent quality. It is not a noisy...

I stayed at the Davenport last week (May, 2014). This is a good quality hotel, with lots of old character. The staff were friendly and professional, and the room was clean with a very comfortable bed. It is located round the corner from Trinity college, so there are many restaurants and pubs within walking distance. I walked into the Grafton street area almost every night (about a 20 minute walk), but there were plenty of options along the way. The breakfast buffet was decent, with a selection of cold and hot items, although it was nothing fancy. This was fine with me, I'd rather eat breakfast and get on with the process of exploring this wonderful city. The deal I had gave me free wifi, which was great. I would definitely return and would recommend the hotel to friends.

I stayed here for 2 nights in April. This is a nice hotel and I would stay here again. It's in a nice location in walking distance to many of the major attractions. The hotel staff was very friendly and always helpful. We arrived before check-in time and they were able to accommodate our early arrival. We were relieved since we were on a red-eye from the east coast in the States that arrived in the morning in Dublin. Lisa who always seemed to be at the front desk was so lovely to chat with and very kind and patient in answering all of our questions. The breakfast buffet was very nice and pretty tasty. The rooms were clean and neat. The beds were small, but I found that to be typical in most places that I stayed in Ireland. This was the perfect hotel to start our vacation.

Had a room on the second floor. There was no view from the window. The room was nicely appointed. The bed was comfy. The breakfast was tasty although it did appear to be organised chaos. The reception staff were very obliging and knowledgeable.

Would definitely recommend this hotel for a high quality centrally located hotel.

It is wonderful to read that you found the hotel to be of high quality, from the comfortable room and tasty breakfast, to its location and helpful reception staff to whom I will be sure to pass on your praise. We had recently upgraded our breakfast presentation, so apologies if it seemed a little chaotic while everything fell into place.

We enjoyed our few days at the Davenport. The beds and pillows were comfy, the bathroom fresh and clean with really hot water, the breakfast buffet extensive and tasty. The front desk staff were cheerful and helpful. My only problem was the one hour a day free WiFi. Once you had logged in for your hour that was it for 11 hours. Not very useful when you are checking out tours and restaurants or trying to make bookings. Every other hotel and guest house we stayed in in Ireland had free unlimited use of the internet. Only a small niggle in what was otherwise a great stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the side with the Pub - gets a bit noisy and it goes on well into the night.
