This Merrion Square classic offers the best of location, Irish hospitality and well-equipped bedrooms to both business and leisure travellers

The Davenport Hotel

On Merrion Square, close to the National Gallery, the Dail (Parliament Buildings) and Trinity College, this striking hotel is fronted by the impressive 1863 facade of the Alfred Jones designed Merrion Hall, which was restored as part of the hotel building project in the early '90s.


Inside, the architectural theme is continued in the naming of rooms - Lanyon's Restaurant, for example, honours the designer of Queen's University Belfast, and the Gandon Suite is named after the designer of some of Dublin's finest buildings, including the Custom House.


This Dublin hotels equally suited to leisure and business guests, has been imaginatively designed to combine interest and comfort, with warm, vibrant colour schemes and a pleasing mixture of old and new in both public areas and accommodation.


Bedrooms are furnished to a high standard with orthopaedic beds, air conditioning, voicemail, modem lines, personal safes and turndown service in addition to the more usual amenities - all also have ample desk space, while the suites also have fax and laser printer.


Above all, perhaps, The Davenport is known for the warmth and helpfulness of its staff, and it makes a very comfortable base within walking distance of shops and galleries; it is the flagship property for a small group of centrally located hotels, including the Alexander Hotel (just off Merrion Square) and the Stephen's Green Hotel (corner of St Stephen's Green and Harcourt Street).
