Ok, so I won't totally knock this hotel, but grand it ain't. If you're from the US and are familiar with Holiday Inn-type establishments, then you'll know that O'Callghan's is one from the moment that you walk into the lobby. As for the rooms, they are a bit worn out and upon entrance you'll notice the HEAVILY perfumed air and the overall sense of cheapness. Are the rooms clean? Well, yes and no...I believe that the staff tries, but it's hard to clean the mold out of shower tile grout that is probably 10+ years old.
All in, I would suggest that you look somewhere else. Higher class hotels for not much more money certainly exist in Dublin (like Clontarf Castle). The location is great, but I would not stay here again. If Motel 6 in the US suits your fancy, then this is your place.
- 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
