"Excellent Overview of Dublin"
The Davenport Hotel in Dublin exceeded our expectations: it was very well-located at Merrion Square, a 10 or 15 minute walk to virtually everything; the building itself was spectacular (it was a former church); front desk service was exceedingly helpful and accommodating; the room was enormous by European standards and very well cleaned; the bathroom […] was updated, with modern amenities. This four star hotel served as a perfect base for a six njight trip to Dublin. Well-recomended! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything"
Good service,good price and within walking distance to many attractions!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location of the hotel was good, but still had to walk a ways to get to certain areas. It is a beautiful hotel. One complaint of the hotel is that it didn't offer free wifii with your stay (which I found pricey). Had to pay for your own parking even though the hotel chain owned the parking garage and they had no washcloths for you to bath with.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well Worth the Money"
OK, it's not the Merrion, but for the price they charge, the are conveniently located in the City Center, near everything, with a perfectly fine restaurant and bar. For business or pleasure I would recommmend the Davenport for anyone who is budget conscious, not spending a lot of time in their room and wanting a decent place to stay!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Could be Grand!"
Grand old hotel could be so much better. It's a lot of little details that could use attention. The first room we were in had a broken hair dryer and a very noisy pub across the street. The second room was fine, but again the end of the blow dryer kept falling off the hose and the room safe didn't work. The rooms also don't have mini-bars: not a big […] deal but disappointing. The whole hotel, although very clean, could use some sprucing up to make it a really grand hotel worthy of 4 stars. The staff is 5 star. If the previous details I mentioned were changed, I would give this a 5 star. The location is perfect and every one was so attentive and pleasant. I would definitely go back there the next time I'm in Dublin. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"right in the centre"
It has been very convenient, very comfortable and very close to anything in the city centre. Room very spacious, very clean, bar and restaurant services good and good price too. the only thing I was a bit disapointed about is that we were placed in the first floor right in front of the entrance of a local pub and we were travelling with a 2 year old […] and the beggining of our early night was a bit noisy. The staff helpfull and nice.I would have thought for the price we would get breakfast and free wifi too though and that is another handycap but still... overall I will definitely repeat next time if possible.

Very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Davenport is a nice location close to museum and Trinity. 10 minute walk to the Temple Bar area as well. My room was the Jr Suite - very large and updated, comfy bed, and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Hotel in a good location"
There was some 'old world' charm with nice wood doors and other warm features. Easy walking to pubs and shopping. Nice staff. I would stay there again. There was a pub directly across from our window and it was noisy late into the night, however, earplugs took care of that problem.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Location, Good Price & Clean"
This a good hotel to stay at. It is reasonably located, only a few blocks from the Book of Kells and Grafton Street. I spent my trip sightseeing Dublin and Ireland so my time in the hotel was limited, but the room was clean (yes, everyday), the hotel itself was clean and the staff were friendly. I don't want to rave too much because, honestly I only […] spent a few hours a night in my room - after all - it is Dublin - get out! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing and over-priced."
Ok hotel, but was very overpriced. I had reserved a junior suite but did not see the difference from a more basic room. My room was clean and serviceable but nothing outstanding. I am not really a picky traveler, as I spend very little time in the hotels other than for showering and sleeping. But this was quite a disappointment overall. Furniture is […] outdated and worn. I sent an email to the hotel 2 weeks before my stay with a couple of questions and never received a response. I recieved terrible service at the restaurant and the pub. Again, I'm not demanding but at the end of a long day it gets annoying waiting 45 min. for a check I requested several times when there were only 3 other tables occupied. The hotel also charges for wi-fi and for tv channels outside of the 4 free channels provided. Also was charged for calls made with a calling card, something like $.38 a minute on top of calling card fees.The so-called cashmere blanket is just a scarf across the end of the bed, so I was always cold during the night as the thermostat did not seem to function at all. I had to use my wool coat over the sheets to warm up at night. The coffee maker was really just a carafe to heat water and I was given a supply of instant coffee packets, but they were always decaf so I had to go out and spend 3 euro every morning in cafes just to get a cup of coffee. I would not recommend this hotel for the prices charged, you can find much nicer accomodations in same area for a lot less. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
""Great value and location.""
Excellent hotel for the value and location. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean and well appointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed my stay very much. Only comment or suggestion to improve is to have FedEx or UPS service for guests who want to ship some things home. They sent my box via US Post - but I have no tracking information, and don't know when it will arrive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for business or pleasure"
We stayed in the hotel for a week while on business in Dublin; my husband and I were travelling together, and found it to be a good hotel if one were on vacation as well. The staff were fantastic, the room was very comfortable. The location was quite good for the variety of places we needed to be--about 20 minute walk to convention center, right near […] Trinity College, easy walk to Temple Bar.

"CLOSE TO EVERYTHING IN DUBLIN"
Parking is awkward, staff is nice. Did NOT eat there, so don't know anything about it. Room clean, comfortable, very well located. Moved to Davenport at the last minute from a much pricier B&B and SO glad we did.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great and the rooms were were very clean. However, the staff was incompetent, churlish and seemed to go out their way to give faulty info to guests. Plus,everything was extra! Wifi, an extra free; television and movies etc.was an extra fee (listed as a communication fee), parking was an extra fee and breakfast was not included in the […] daily rate.. We found just the opposite in all of the other hotels we in which we stayed. The front desk consistently gave us (as well as many other guests) incorrect and confusing directions to popular destinations. In the breakfast buffet (11.(5 Euro) the chafing dishes were never refilled until the last bit of food gone. After cleaning our room, the maid consistently left the door ajar. All of these items are listed on their web page as available....but I thought they were available at no extra charge. It is a great location. If you decide to stay at this hotel,t bring extra money and don't count on the staff for any helpful assistance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

great people, excellent room, weakness is amenities, marginal towels, soaps and shampooGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel Near Trinity College Dublin"
Better than the nearby sister property O'Callaghan Alexander. The Alexander is just one notch below this, it was perfectly clean and the staff was great but the enamel in the tub was chipped and there was a cigarette (?) stain on the carpet. The Davenport is much more elegant and was immaculate in every detail.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was everything that I needed to be! The front desk and management was excellent help. I would not hesitate to stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location for your first trip to Dublin"
Other reviewers mentioned noise from the local pubs. I noticed it also but when I closed my window, I could no longer hear the street noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"O'Callaghan Davenport - Dublin"
O'Callaghan Davenport - Dublin, 25 minutes from aiport. Staff was extremely helpful. Location within a 5 minute walk to Grafton St. shopping, Book of Kell's and many museums. Family research locations are within a bus trip or walking distance. Taxi and hop-on hop-off buses just feet from the hotel for ease in getting about the city. Hotel has a full […] Irish breakfast which was good but got boring after a while it would have been good to have other options available. We did not eat dinner at the hotel so I am unable to rate. The room was a bit too warm, easily remedied by opening a window and would not be considered a detraction. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great stay over the long Christmas break, the staff was wonderfully accomodating to all our needs and questions. Great location for exploring Dublin, all around great hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice place in Merrion Square, old ... but most hotels are in this area. Good service, you have to pay for internet though.Genuine Expedia guest review
We really enjoyed our stay at the O'Callaghan Davenport. It is conveniently located within walking distance to Trinity College and the bus stops. The hotel itself is very nicely decorated. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that the dining room was understaffed and the wait was slow. Although […] my daughter really enjoyed her irish stew, my husband and I were unimpressed with our selections from the menu. No worries there because there are plenty of restaurant options within walking distance. We would definitely return to this hotel in the future and recommend it to friends and family.

"Fantastic Hotel & Staff"
This hotel was all that I had hoped it would be. Location was fantastic in regard to public transportation. Bus stop for airport bus was right around the corner. Dart transportation a block away. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. Front desk helped me contact the airline late in the evening when the airline cancelled my flight. Rooms were large […] and comfortable. Side room was near a pub, but the noise from the pub was not too annoying and stopped at a reasonable time. I would highly recommend this hotel in regard to value and quality.

Lovely room, great price through expedia. Great location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, should have wifi"
Great hotel, within walking distance of all the city's main attractions. However, there is only 1h of wifi per room (not even cumulative throughout the day). For the expense of the room and the quality of the hotel, why aggravate customers with a petty wifi limit and fee?Genuine Expedia guest review

"Pleasant and very comfortable hotel, good location"
We wanted a comfortable base for a three day visit to Dublin. This hotel fitted the bill very well - and the price was reasonable (breakfast was extra but wifi was free in the room for an hour a day).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Handy to town"
Quick overnight stay, minimal contact with hotel and facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the City Center"
This hotel is a short 10-15minute stroll from the Town centre so ideally located for the shops & bars of Dawson St, Grafton St, Temple Bar and O'Connell street. Rooms are very hot with quite ineffectual air conditioning. I always find breakfast to be the worse part of any hotel and it was the same here: the coffee was weak & tastless, sausages were […] tasteless pulp and I didn't even try the dried out scrambled eggs.

"A good solid hotel"
The Davenport is a very good hotel for a visit to Dublin - close enough to the centre and its attractions but in a relatively quiet location. The rooms are a good size, well funished and very clean. The hotel is solidly built so it is generally possible to get a good night's sleep. The staff are helpful and friendly and looked after us very well. This […] is no flashy or trendy boutique hotel, it is just a solid and quality place to stay and one that we have stayed often and would highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel Great Location"
Stayed for 3 nights and the hotel was great. Check in was quick, room was nice and big, clean and whilst not modern still great for a few nights. The rooms were quite warm and you need to open the windows so ask for a room at the back. Didn't eat at the hotel but bar was fine for drinks and coffee. The two things that make this a good hotel to stay […] at is the location and price. Location is further enough from the centre to be in a bit of peace but close enough to be able to walk in 10 mins. Rice was very reasonable for a city centre hotel and a hotel of this standard. Staff very helpful so no complaints there. When in Dublin again I would look to stay here.

"Great location, warm experience"
The O'Callaghan Davenport is a comfortable, well - situated, friendly hotel. If you're looking for modernity, this is not the place for you. For us, the hotel's rather outdated decor added to its charm. The bar/ restaurant is a great friendly place to relax in at any point in the day, especially if you like a glass of Guiness and a bite to eat. I can […] really recommend the Irish ham and cheese sandwich - I can't remember when I've enjoyed a sandwich more. Our room was quiet in terms of street noise, even though it I looked out on a very busy pub, but there was quite a lot of noise from fellow guests in the corridor and adjoining rooms. That and the fact that there was only 1 hour of free wifi/ day were my only real complaints. The former is probably unavoidable in an old building, but the wifi set up is inexcusable - a 4 star hotel in any capital city must provide unlimited free internet access for its guests, that's as much of an expectation as bathroom toiletries. Did we enjoy our stay and would we go back ? Yes and yes ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
