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.

Beautiful, comfy hotel

Lovely hotel for a couple. Quiet area but in walking distance to great restaurants and central town. Big room (compared to European hotels at least) and a comfy bed. We loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book there again.

Disappointing

Looked good on the web site. Fairly impersonal , no nice touches in the room, eg, no water, no biscuits, no flowers, over priced buffet breakfast, Noisy location. Staff were helpful and friendly. Room was of a nice size, the decor, especially the bathroom needed some renovation, chipped poorly applied paint, the wardrobe was taken up with an ironing board etc, even though it had a separate cupboard elsewhere in the room. Over all disappointing, we wouldn't go back again.

A Wonderful Weekend

What can I say? Perhaps that I would like to go back to the O'Callaghan Davenport as soon as we can! The hotel is perfectly situated, close to museums and art galleries, on a main tour bus route and within walking distance of the shopping areas. The hotel is clean, smart and comfortable. The food is fantastic. But, most of all, the hotel is made by the staff who were warm, welcoming, polite and kind. Without doubt this is the best hotel stay we have ever had (and that includes top flight places in London)!

The food is great with fantastic fresh ingredients. It is also substantial, so allow plenty of time for your meals! The Guinness really is much, much better than anywhere else.

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.

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.

Fun weekend in Dublin, but...

Staff was great, very friendly and helpful; especially in helping sign up for the PAID wifi which was problematic, expensive, and very slow :( Not their fault. That's on management! Management: Offer free, competitively-performing wifi if you want more goodwill -- your staff is working hard to cultivate it; what are you doing to help them? That's the question a leader asks.
