The Davenport

Republic of Ireland, Co. Dublin

The Davenport

Steeped in history, the Davenport Hotel dates back to the early 17th century. The building, where the Davenport is located, was formerly Merrion Hall, a prayer hall which was designed to be able to accommodate up to 2000 worshippers. Unfortunately, a fire in 1990 destroyed the interior but luckily the impressive and historically important facade survived and is listed and retained as an impressive lobby for the luxurious and modern O’Callaghan Davenport Hotel in Dublin, (you may recognise it from the film Hear my song).

The Davenport Hotel has three meeting rooms which can cater for meetings and conferences from 16 to 250 delegates in a desirable central Dublin location.  The Gandon Suite offers two rooms with flexible options for your conferences. The additional Gandon central space links the two rooms and offers an additional boardroom style space, perfect for intimate meetings or as a breakout space.

The team at the Davenport Hotel Dublin have years of experience delivering successful meetings and events.

For larger events the Davenport Hotel team can offer you the added flexibility of partnering with our sister hotels in Dublin, The Alex and The Mont Clare, located directly across the road.  The Orient Suite at The Alex can accommodate up to 400 delegates and the three hotels will partner together to provide breakouts or dining space for large conferences.

Located on Merrion square, home to: The National Museum, The Natural History Museum, Dail Eireann, (the home of Government), The National Maternity Hospital and many of our largest companies, life not only begins in this part of Dublin but a stroll around the area ensures you see Dubliners in all their guises, business, politics, study, socialising and, of course, shopping
