Deluxe accommodations in one of Dublin’s best addresses
The O'Callaghan Davenport, housed in a former church, is situated in one of Dublin's most impressive Georgian areas surrounded by the National Gallery, Natural History Museum and steps from the architecturally stunning Merrion Square.

Dining

Restaurant
This charming Dublin restaurant is named after a famous architect, Sir Charles Lanyon. Like the historic faade of this Dublin hotel, Lanyons exudes an old world, traditional charm. This is a very stylish restaurant, serving top class international cuisine. A real favourite among local Dubliners.
Bar
Presidents Bar is a very popular choice to relax and enjoy a drink from the bar or a snack from bar menu available all day.

A stay in Dublin

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good. The overall location was quite convenient and the hotel was very quiet at night which was great. The hotel was extraordinarily clean. I am sure by European standards this hotel is truly a four star hotel, but by American standards, I would only rate it three stars at best, and in reality, it would be 2.5 stars. At those rates, even through Orbitz, I would expect a larger room, free internet, and more basic amenities. Overall, I would say a very good hotel, but a bit pricey for what you really get.
