ABOUT THE davenport hotel IN DUBLIN
The Davenport Hotel is part of the O’Callaghan Hotel Group. The building opened as a four-star hotel in 1993 and offers both a traditional and modern experience in Dublin with an ideal city centre location.
Steeped in history, the Davenport Hotel dates back to the early 17th century. The building, in which the elegant Davenport is situated, was formerly known under 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 traditional O’Callaghan Davenport Hotel in Dublin, which can be recognized from the movie “Hear my song”.
Located right on Merrion Square, which is home to The National Gallery of Ireland, The Natural History Museum, Dail Eireann, (the home of Government), 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. Merrion Park is a wonderful green space right in the middle of this Georgian Square, for which Dublin is so well known. Featuring several festivals, events and markets each year, it’s a popular area for both locals and tourists.
