We recently stayed there for a weekend and the hotel was fantastic. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome. The hotel itself is very clean and everything is a high standard. The rooms are clean and have great facilities.
The location is great right in the heart of Dublin and easy access to most things. We stayed Bed and breakfast and that was excellent also. The only one fault on the breakfast front was they had no beans but that really isn't a problem as the choice you get is really good.
Overall I would highly recommend a stay here.

Dear Reeceyb113.

Thank you for your recent stay with us and for your 5 star review! The team and I treat each hotel guest as a guest in our own home, and I am delighted to read you experienced that from the moment you walked in!
We are blessed with an excellent central location, within walking distance of many tourist attractions and points of interest in Dublin, yet quiet enough for a good night's sleep. I am glad you took advantage of the location and also that you had a fantastic stay.

Thank you also for your recommendation which is very much appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you back to us when next in Dublin.

With many thanks and kind regards,
Andrei Ciugulea.

The staff at this hotel were friendly and most helpful. The room was well appointed and very clean. The location is excellent for a visit to Dublin. The food and bar areas are very comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent. I recommend the Davenport highly.

I arrived early. All staff very helpful. Very good quality service at all levels. I agree with off-street comment for quiet, mine was.

Great shower, often a problem with other hotels.
My SOLE GRUMBLE is the use of an air freshner in the aircon.

I will book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Just ask for off street.

Great location for seeing all of Dublin. Close to shopping, pubs, tour buses, Trinity College and other attractions. Staff was very accomodating. Nice bar area and breakfast room. Only disappointment was the fitness area.

Our experience at the Davenport was great. The "city center" location makes it convenient to reach a number of attractions and the staff was very helpful. Especially Lucia. She corrected a duplicate booking that had crept into the system with no hesitation, seemed to be present from early morning to late evening, and always was both helpful and very pleasant.

Nice hotel with very helpful staff. Get a room off the street as they are much quieter. Easy to get around Dublin from this location. Rooms clean and good sized for area. Right off St. Steven's green, close to Trinity College and an easy walk to Grafton Street.

Room Tip: Rooms off street are quieter

The hotel is in an Great location! Far enough away from the major pub areas for peace and quiet. Yet you could walk if you truly wanted to or take a short taxi ride. Blocks away from Trinity Church, St. Stephens Green. The rooms are nice size and very well maintained. The front desk and house keeping were exceptional! If you have a rental car, parking is a bit tricky but easily manageable. I would definitely stay here again.
