Traditional and sufficient

We were in town for vacation and stayed here for just 2 nights. The staff was friendly and the lobby beautiful. The room was a bit tight but we had a big bed (two twins together). The room was adequate for the 2 of us and was a decent price. The air wasn't on - don't know if they didn't have it or if it wasn't working but it was cool enough with the window open. A tad loud b/c we were over the street on a Fri. night. The flat screen TV was probably the newest thing in the room and very nice - clever way to get a wake up call. We didn't use much else but the safe. It was just a couple minutes walk to Grafton St and we could ride the Aircoach from the airport so easy to navigate. We wanted affordable, but nice, and a decent location and I think this fit the bill.

We never ate at the hotel - looked nice but a bit expensive but there were plenty of little market stores and restaurants just around the corner a block or so away.

Fulfilled our needs nicely

Good location on Merrion Square, rooms spotless. Service was good, only problem was upon checking in had to go back down to reception because key card didn't work. Made three trips, but got problem resolved. Staff were polite and helpful, abundant hot water for showers. Would stay again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Many restaurants in the Temple Bar area offer early bird specials with good savings, look around while sightseeing as most are posted outside the restaurants.

Nice Place, Great Location

The O'Callaghan Mont Clare was a great value for the price paid. We arrived in Dublin at 0530 and were able to check in at 0730. Desk staff was very courteous. The room was neat and clean. Very little noise in the hotel and beds were very comfortable. The location is very convenient for most of the Dublin sites.

Awesome hotel

Breakfast spread is wonderful and contains a full hot Irish, pastries, fresh fruit with a pot of tea or coffee. Rooms are clean and spacious with a restraunt guide that gives you the menus for several surrounding restraunts. Easy walking distance to EVERYTHING in the city. Cab fare to airport a reasonable 25 euro. Wonderful stay!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Ginger Man pub right around the corner. Full bar, super good food (and very generous portions) and chatty bartenders who will tell you the best to see in Dublin and what to skip over.
