Super Hotel

We just loved this hotel. We started our bus tour here and wish all had been so near places and had the classiness this one had. They don't have a pool but we were not looking for things like that. We were near Trinity College, and all other places we wanted to see in Dublin. Bus was a few feet away. Two pubs nearby, Kennedy and Ginger Man had GREAT food. Would love to stay there again. Helpful staff.

Dublin virgins

A lovely well furnished hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms were large, huge beds, table,chairs coffee making, tv, and large sliding wardrobes . Bathroom clean and spacious, with hairdryer, mirrors and toiletries. Ordered room service on one evening and was surprised with the size of portions and time it took. The breakfast was a variety of choice, cooked, pastries, fruits, meats, cereals and juices. Only negative was that for the price I feel breakfast should have been included in the cost and not to be paid for extra.

Family Vacation

Very happy with the size of the room, much larger than expected. Had a queen and twin size bed, sitting area and still had room to move around. Was able to walk to many of the things we wanted to see and short cab rides to the ones we did not. We will go back to this location again.

Wonderful

Staying at the ocallaghan davenport hotel was great. It iepitomized all we'd thought of Ireland--friendly, comfortable, clean, wholesome, and solid like the sherry Netherlands of New York in the 50s. Location couldn't have been better.

O'Callaghan Davenport

For those looking for a hotel in a quite neighborhood setting within a 5 minute walking distant to the bustle of downtown Dublin. There were 2 local pubs (O'Donoghue's and the pub across the street) that make you feel like a local and have the best fish n chips, also a local start up with great sandwiches and a fine line of local start up brewery beers in bottle's. The room was comfortable, clean and had all that this traveler needed. I will stay the next time I am in Dublin.

Special Birthday Celebration

Fabulous weekend from start to finish the hotel and its location added to the overall experience. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly nothing seemed to much trouble for them and our room was ready when we arrived at 10am. The room was booked for 3 and was a great sized room with good facilities. We'd certainly use this hotel again.

Great visit.

When my husband and I stayed at O'Callaghan Davenport, the hotel was under construction but we were impressed that it wasn't a nuisance. The staff was friendly and very helpful especially when it comes to giving pointers to local eateries and points of interests. The location was perfect: it's near Trinity College and Temple Bar area but far enough that it was not as crowded and noisy as Temple Bar. We had great time and would recommend O'Callaghan to our friends.

Great place to stay because it's quiet but it is near many points of interest, like Trinity College Library where the Book of Kells is housed. Many cafes in the neighborhood that serve great hot breakfast and yes, Irish breakfast too.
