Historic Design at The Davenport
Steeped in history, The Davenport Hotel dates back to the early 17th Century and continues to exude an old-worldly charm to the present day.
The Davenport is a listed building, originally built as a prayer hall that accommodated around 300 worshippers from the surrounding Merrion Square area. The sandstone colour of the exterior mimics the architecture of Ancient Rome and is built in a Neoclassical style. The hotel interior designers used a monochrome (single colour) scheme during construction to stay in line with the late-Georgian design aesthetic, focusing on the use of pale yet rich colours.
From its iconic front façade to its marble-clad décor, elegant columns and period artwork, The Davenport is ideal for guests looking to experience surrounding Georgian Dublin who want to stay in a hotel that transports them back hundreds of years.
