"Worth Repeating"
We liked everything about the Davenport. Location. Super staff. We ate in the President's Bar one evening -- one of the very best Guiness and Beef Stew ever! Also ate at the Gingerman Pub -- fun, and right around the corner.

"Nice place close to a lot of action"
The hotel and rooms are in very good condition and are comfortable. There pubs close by if you are not into venturing out and you are quite close to the shopping district (walking distance) and the museums. The staff was fairly knowledgeable, but were quite young and seemed somewhat inexperienced with some matters, but very eager to help. As with most of Ireland, the internet access was moderate to poor, so once again, the staff thought it was OK, but quite lacking compared with U.S. standards. I would definitely stay here again should I find myself in Dublin.

"Great staff - good location"
It is an old hotel and could use some cosmetic touch ups. But the staff is great, the beds are comfortable and the location is pretty good. 10 minute walk into the city center (Grafton St) and right next to Trinity College. There is a great pub (The Gingerman) right next door. It is a solid 3-4 star hotel.

"Very nice hotel, great location, great value"
This is the second time I've stayed at O'Callagan Davenport. I am rating this hotel a '5' not because it's the most luxurious or fancy hotel, but because of the value. You'd have to spend at least twice what I paid (via Expedia special rate) to get a comparable room in a comparable location.

The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful. She noticed that there were 2 reservations for me (my error) and cancelled one of them. She also helped me print out boarding passes for our flight home, and in general was very pleasant and always sincere. I can not remember her name however I feel that she should get a promotion for all that she does for your hotel and is a great reflection on your high standards. I did have a slight problem with the condition of the bathroom. There were several strands of hair in the tub and on the tile walls...very disgusting and perhaps a reflection of the overall cleaning standards of the room.

"A bit of quiet in a bustling city"
The Davenport is an excellent choice for Dublin. The hotel has a very comfortable layout which reduces noise from other rooms. It's a well run hotel with a friendly, efficient staff. It's located on in a quiet neighborhood on Marion Square, and behind Trinity College so it's a short walk to St Stephens Green, Grafton Street. And Temple Bar. It's probably the best 4 star we stayed in over many years of traveling.

I wasn't sure what to expect and was very pleasently surprised by the very large room and bathroom, the fabulous location and the great and responsive staff. The hotel itself is housed in a beautiful building. The rooms were spotless and the Chicken Leek in puff pastry was fabulous. A great place at a great price.

The hotel is comfortable and the room was spacious enough. Just kind of worn carpeting and in some cases walls. The front desk staff is superb, helpful and knowledgeable about the city. Breakfast is great if a bit pricey. Location couldn't be much better, close to great sites and shopping district. We'd stay again but please spiff it a bit.

Great. Traveled with 5yr old and senior. All were comfortable. Very clean and well maintained facility. First time there and I would use it again. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. Hotel was a short walk from Graffton St but that meant it was quiet since we weren't in the full tourist traffic area. Park across the street that has a kiddie playground too!

"Nice area just outside Temple Bar"
Hotel is in a nice area within walking distance of the city center. The Ginger Man pub across the street is a lovely Pub with an upstairs barr we ate at Matt The Thresher for Dinner a five minute walk, great food and decor..make a reservation ,it's popular with locals. The hotel was nice, friendly service, however, the spring loaded wooden doors in the hallway are noisy and slam shut waking us up. The hotel did not respond to emails I sent with important requests though.

"Great location, average hotel"
The hotels.com booking did not include wifi service nor breakfast. The hotel room is old-fashioned and nothing to write home about. The "king" size bed was just two beds pushed together, not exactly the most comfortable. The wake-up call comes from the TV (not the phone) and hard to work via the remote at 5:30 AM. I've received better amenities and comfort from a Holiday Inn. The front desk was very helpful giving us directions to various locations. The location is great and easy to walk to Grafton St, St. Stephen's Green, Temple Bar, etc.

"Would definitely return"
The hotel is charming if a little shabby around the edges. We found this to be acceptable and actually thought it added to the appeal. The location couldn't be better...quiet area but very close to all the action. We were in a junior suite and have never had more walking and luggage space in a hotel room in Europe. The staff at the Davenport is quite gracious and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again!

"Dublin business"
Great Front Desk staff, always prompt to help. Elevators response is very fast. Buffet Breakfast has the basics, but it's very good.Bathroom sink has separate faucets, cold and hot,..however, hot water is extremely hot (be careful), thus, it would be great if they have a faucet that mixes cold & hot water. Bed super comfy. Philips TV flat screen... but old "slow" model. Wi-Fi is fast once you can get in, sometimes it takes long to sign-up, then system needs to recognize your device, and it could be a lengthy process. Hotel conveniently located close to several pubs and restaurant. Nearby "Il Cafe di Napoli" restaurant is superb with reasonable prices. Hotel is highly recommended for two to three nights stay in downtown Dublin.

This hotel was very nice, and the neighborhood was quiet. The room and bed were very comfortable! At times it was difficult to find food or drinks within a block or so of the hotel, but Dublin is very walkable, and I was able to find what I needed within just a couple blocks. The location is convenient to the train station and to most of Dublin's sights.

"Convenient..."
The hotel was convenient to galleries, museums, shopping and pubs. Our room was across from a pub that we heard little bit one night but it wasn't too bad. Staff was helpful and courteous, but not as friendly as our other hotel in Ireland. The hotel amenities were excellent. I would recommend the hotel for business travelers but not for someone looking for Irish hospitality.

Hotel was pleasant and very conveniently located. Room comfortable with all amenities and free internet (not always available even in Ireland.)

"Location good, watch out for undisclosed charges."
The hotel is a typical old luxury hotel. It's a little shabby at the edges but still a pretty nice building, lovely lobby and very friendly and helpful staff. The beds were nice, the bathroom was very good, the only complaint about the room is the window opened into the interior ventilation shaft so there was a constant drone from the ventilation system and very little sunlight. I'm sure this is a function of getting the discounted room on Expedia, I imagine the full price better rooms are excellent. One thing to watch out for, when we went down to breakfast they asked which room we were in, marked us off the list and made no mention of a charge. I have traveled extensively in Europe, and when this happens, you assume that breakfast is included with the room. Not so what's this place, when I went to check out I noticed that the breakfast for two people was 27 euros, at an exchange rate of 1.3 that makes breakfast $35 ($17.50 each) which is pretty dear indeed.

"Too Hot! Be careful if you get a "rate.""
Room was overheated and we needed to leave the window open to avoid the sauna effect. Be careful if you book at a discount rather then directly through the hotel! We found out upon check-out that breakfast wasn't included because we'd booked at a rate via the web. They also nickel & dimed us on Wifi, which would have been included if we'd paid full freight on the room. Nevertheless, most of the staff was quite nice and the location was great.

We arrived midday, and got fish & chips at a pub across from hotel, very good. Breakfast is not included w/room, but is a highly adequate buffet, w/ competitive prices. Easy to get around town w/ bus stop just across the street. Your electronic keycard accesses the lights/electrics in the room (this was a new experience for us Americans).

"Handy hotel"
The O'Callaghan Davenport is handy if you want to be near the center of Dublin, but out of the craziness of Grafton Street and the worst of the pub culture, which reside a convenient 5 minutes west. Rooms are comfortable if a tad small - more consistent with European sensibilities than American ones. Water is hot, and the staff is very friendly and helpful, as is all of the hospitality industry in Dublin.
