Dublin trip

They seemed understaffed and confused. Rooms smelled. Booked rooms together, but we were on different floors. It would have been nice to hsve a view of Dublin, our view was a wall. Half way through our stays the keys stopped working. The bartender did not know how to make drinks. We would not recommend this hotel.

Pretty annoying throughout.

Our lackluster experience started from the moment we drove up. There is no loop to park your car while you check in, so you hope that one of the 1-hour spots is available at the precise moment you hope to arrive. Next, parking is about a 5 minute drive away, mosty because you are facing the wrong direction and the streets are one way. Only one employee, a young man who worked the front desk and delivers room service, was even the slightest bit polite. We stayed in the new section of the hotel, which does have nice modern rooms. However, the new section is actually an attached building accessed through a walkway, so you are in for a short walk and two elevators to get to your room if you are in that section. By far the most annoying thing for me was the charge for internet. They charge on the clock, which keeps running even after you log off so you might have to buy more time if you happen to leave. There was supposed to be free internet in the business center, but the front desk told me that the services book had not been updated and that all internet use was charged now so I might as well go back to my room. This is (to an American) outrageous given the fees they want and the fact that "free" internet should come with a $200 per night room. So, nice room but the service is just not there.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are looking to get on a bus tour and act indecisive enough, the bus drivers will lower the rates to get you on. Taking a bus tour also might be the best way to just get around even if you have no plans to stop at every stop.

not more than ok

The hotel was ok - good location and relatively clean (although a little dusty). They make a big deal of their hotel, but in fact it is no more than a basic hotel, with basic services and certainly not what you would expect from a - "boutique hotel in Dublin".

Great location

The O´Callaghan St. Stephen's Green is in a great location, close to Grafton St and only 10 minutes or so walk from Temple Bar, so close enough to the bars, shops, restaurants, etc, but far enough away that you escape the noise at night. It's a comfortable hotel, with friendly staff, but I was disappointed to have to pay for the wireless internet connection. Our air-con unit went crazy in the middle of the first night, and although we reported it, the same thing happened the next night. Not a big deal as we were only there 2 nights. Overall, value for money.

Great location - okay hotel.

The location is great! Right of Stephens Green & Grafton Street, close to DART, 10 min walk to Temple Bar. We felt save - closest coffee shop is on Grafton Street and everything opens after 8a. We used the the bus service which drops you on the top of Dawson Street. The negatives is that the heat was blowing air but not warm air, the bathroom needs updating and the walls are thin. We didn't eat at the hotel. The front desk was helpful when approached.

O'Callaghan on the Green

Very efficient, polite, hospitable staff. Excellent location across from the very restful and green Stephens' Green with easy walk to the most interesting places in the City Centre. Easily could be a 4 star hotel except for the need to upgrade their plumbing. Poor control over hot water and signs in rooms alert guests to test the water before using. Clear indication that this is a known issue that needs to be fixed. If you are willing to put up with possibly ending up in a room with such plumbing, this is otherwise a great hotel. Staff were immediately responsive and immediately provided me with a key to another room to shower.
