Bottom Line

The Davenport Hotel is a solid mid-range hotel in a central location near Merrion Square. The spacious 102 rooms and 12 suites are clean and quiet with classic decor, comfortable beds, and updated amenities such as flat-screen TVs and electronic safes. The President's Bar is a popular spot for after work drinks and Lanyon's Restaurant serves a hearty daily breakfast. Hotel amenities include a business center and small fitness room, but there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.

Oyster Hotel Review

The Davenport Hotel


Centrally located near Merrion Square and Trinity College

The Davenport has an ideal location right in the heart of Dublin. This neighborhood is full of landmarks and fun things to do. Historic Merrion Square and Trinity College are steps from the hotel, and other interesting areas such as Temple Bar and St. Stephen's Green are within easy walking distance. There is also a train (DART) station and access to several bus lines down the street, but Dublin is small enough to be explored on foot.

This area of central Dublin is known for its Georgian houses, historic sights, great shopping scene, and for Trinity College, the oldest university in Ireland. The college was founded in the late 16th century and has one of the most impressive book collections in Europe, including the historic Book of Kells. The central location of this hotel makes it one of the most convenient picks in Dublin.
