Very comfortable and quiet hotel in a great location. Free WiFi. Welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The furniture in the lobby is a bit dated but don't let that bother you, give this one a go! Good size rooms, very clean, great staff. Excellent breakfast buffet. The stay was great!

This hotel is nicely situated in Dublin with easy access to many tourist sites, including Trinity College, the National Art Museum, St. Stephen's Green, and Merrion Square. The hop-on-and-off tourist bus also leaves from Merrion Square and can get you to other sites in the city. The room was clean and a decent size. We did hear the television from...

The Davenport has an air of faded opulence, but our experience there was lovely. Convenient city center location, comfortable rooms, helpful staff, and excellent breakfast included. I'd stay there again.
