ABOUT THE davenport hotel IN DUBLIN
Steeped in history, the Davenport Hotel dates back to the early 17th century. The building, where the Davenport is located, was formerly Merrion Hall, a prayer hall which was designed to be able to accommodate up to 2000 worshippers. Unfortunately, a fire in 1990 destroyed the interior but luckily the impressive and historically important facade survived and is listed and retained as an impressive lobby for the luxurious and modern O’Callaghan Davenport Hotel in Dublin, (you may recognise it from the film Hear my song).
Located on Merrion square, home to: The National Museum, The Natural History Museum, Dail Eireann, (the home of Government), The National Maternity Hospital and many of our largest companies, life not only begins in this part of Dublin but a stroll around the area ensures you see Dubliners in all their guises, business, politics, study, socialising and, of course, shopping.
The building opened as a four star hotel in 1993 and offers both a traditional and modern experience in Dublin with a superb city centre location. The Davenport Hotel is part of the O’Callaghan Hotel Group.
