Classy hotel. Decent size room; not a suite but plenty big enough. Very nice bathroom. Staff we had interactions with were very professional. The Leap Bus from the airport drops you off practically at the front door. On one side of town, so there’s a bit of a walk to the night life area around Temple Bar. Seemed to be a variety of O’Callaghan properties in the neighborhood.
We had a wonderful stay at the hotel! Check in was efficient and welcoming, the room was lovely, large, and comfortable. The location of the hotel is perfect and we enjoyed walking to our favorite parts of Dublin! The front desk attendant helped us by calling a cab to the airport upon check out and this was very helpful! Thank you for making our visit to Dublin perfect in every way! The only suggestion I could make to help the hotel improve would be a new doormat at the front door to the hotel. It does look a little worn and gives a shabby first impression but the rest of the lobby is very nice and clean. We would definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to return to Dublin again!
Large room amply supplied with chairs and table. Very large and comfortable bed.
Large bathroom with a very powerful shower.
Staff couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and accommodating.
Great value for money.
Well done O'Callaghan
Long overdue review. Stayed here in October 2015. It was a great hotel. Rooms were cosy and clean, a good size and the bathroom was in good nick. Reception staff were very helpful. Breakfast was generous and yummy. Very handy location - easy to walk to many things (shopping, parks, a lot of touristy things).
Lovely , clean classic old hotel. This hotel has been updated and kept up extremely well. Our room was very large with a beautiful wood desk. The Staff was warm, friendly and very helpful with helping us navigate our first time Dublin. We will are planning our next time and this hotel will be our first stop.
This was our second time @ your hotel. We chose to return mainly for the location and staff. Being in a nearly perfect locality for access to Dublin's attractions we can't imagine a better home base for our stays.
With two fine pubs across the street and easy walking distance to central location without the constant flux of other tourists it's perfect. Its a five minute walk to Trinity, or any of the major museums. 10 minutes to Temple Bar or Central Post Office. The rooms are very clean, not opulent but more than satisfactory. Very comfortable beds and pillows. The baths could use an update but are clean and functional. The staff are great, always available with knowledge to make your trip easy and pleasant. A great location for any Dubllin visit.
As a returning guest the location & quality of this hotel is excellent but it's main benefit of staying here is the lovely staff. One in particular Andrea made my mum & dad feel so welcome at breakfast looking after them.
I normally stayed at the Westbury when visiting Dublin & although this hotel is slightly further away from shops I prefer the atmosphere & service.
The hotel is in a great location. The room was nice and clean. The staff could use a little work. Front desk people were nice, the wait staff at breakfast was less than pleasant and the bar tender seemed put out that we came in for a night cap, an hour before closing.
It is a n older hotel, but again great location. Hop on, hop off bus is right outside the hotel and The Ginger Man and Kennedy's are across the street.
Not a room I would accept again. Comfy beds and a spacious room but very dark and hot, non functioning air con and a window that didn't full open as it looked out onto a black hole which was obviously a bird toilet, and also very noisy. This was mentioned on checking out when asked if we had enjoyed our stay. Otherwise a pleasant enough hotel in a good location.
My husband and I stayed at the O'Callaghan Davenport Hotel on the night of our five year anniversary. It was also the last night of our Holiday. We had made the reservation to include champagne and strawberries about a month or two in advance. Note that if you make a reservation with extras, you will want to confirm the extras a day or two in advance. We didn't do that so it wasn't waiting for us in the room, and we had to call for it to be delivered. Staying at the Davenport was still a nice capstone to a great vacation and celebration. Breakfast was delicious.
The staff are lovely here, and we were made feel welcome for our event. The food provided was good for average hotel standards, and the room was quite spacious. The downstairs function room and toilets could do with a facelift, but other than that it was a hassle free day spent here.
Attended a professional dinner meeting here. While the staff were quite professional and attentive, the set menu was limited to either salmon or spicy beef Curry. The quality of the food was fair. Stayed at the sister property across the street, so I can't comment on the rooms etc. but the lobby and public areas are beautiful and have an Old World sort of charm.
First impression was poor, check in guy told me room wasn't ready because check-in isn't until 3, (we were there 10mins before 2) I told him I received an email from the hotel directly telling me check-in was 2, he didn't believe me, so I had to dig out the email to prove it to him, he was then grumpy for the rest of the check in. Didn't find staff friendly, nobody smiled!
Room was basic, TV and reception on TV was poor, curtain rail in shower was rusty, walls in one room were grubby (we had 2 rooms).
Breakfast room was lovely, but no wow factor on the breakfast itself, yoghurt delicious, black pudding was still raw.
Location was excellent.
Definitely not worth what we paid for the 2 rooms.
The hotel has a lot of potential due to its location, yet is very, very outdated. I was lucky enough to stay in the only renovated "mock room", but have seen the standard of the remaining rooms. Service level is also not that what you would expect for this price level. I had to stay here for 3 weeks due to a company event, otherwise I would have left. The restaurant at least serves a good steak
Very poor experience in the bar. Asked for red wine and received white. Was told soup of the day was vegetable and then received tomato soup. The soup itself was cold, tasted like vinegar and was clearly not fresh. I was unable to eat it. Advised the floor manager of this and was still asked to pay for it.
My mother also ate here and she enjoyed her main course.
Living off the location. Will not return.
The hotel is very tired. The furniture in my room was scuffed and damaged. There was no porridge at breakfast. There is no assistance with luggage despite the car park being a walk away. The only reason I chose the hotel was it's location. There is better in the area.
Worst experience ever!
Construction site all day long (7am - 6pm, sometimes even longer).
Junior Suite is a bigger double bedroom without minibar and with a small TV only. I have expected a modern and also a bigger bathroom for a 4-star Junior Suite. The price is definitely too expensive for such a hotel room !
