In a great location..... had a really enjoyable stay and would definitely stay again. It is opposite the Gingerman pub which is worth a visit especially at Christmas, I have never seen so many decorations it was magical.

The Davenport is a nice hotel in a good location. Rooms are large. Wifi worked really well. The location is nice. Within walking distance of Trinity College, Marrion Park, St Stephen's Green, Grafton Street, and we even walked back from Temple Bar area. The service was great as well. Breakfast was a traditional Irish breakfast and was good. Bathrooms were...

Nice and comfortable in a great location, this is a clean and serviceable tourist hotel. Not many bells or whistles, but with a helpful and friendly staff, and a nice but limited breakfast buffet - but ordering off the menu instead is an option, which late sleepers should probably do! Our room was always nicely cleaned and all the people...

Was waited on by Aleksander in the hotel lobby area and the service was excellent! Great attention to detail, and just a warm, welcoming atmosphere in general. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Dublin.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. The first time was very good and I was looking forward to my stay.

This was my second stay in The Davenport and in all fairness, the first time wasn't so great. Things went wrong with checking in and the room was small too warm and noisy. However, I did enjoy the location, the classic style of the hotel, the bar and the breakfast! The manager at reception apologized and asked me to mention...

I thought this was a lovely place to stay for the evening. The rooms were nice and beds were comfortable. Loved that it was near Trinity College and there were a couple of nice pubs right across the street from the hotel as well.

Dublin is in Saint Patrick's day mode. Streets busy tourist venues packed. We were looking for lunch venue after visit to National Gallery. The restaurant there was full.
