Myself and my Fiancé stayed in the Mont Clare hotel for one night in October 2017. There was a storm on the night we stayed and the weather was terrible. The girl on reception when we arrived was very pleasant and talkative so no problems there. We were staying in an Executive room 350. When we got up to the room the door looked very battered like as if someone had previously tried to break into it, very worn. The room itself was big but it was freezing cold. The radiator was insufficient to heat that size of room and it only seemed to be on sporadically. The room itself smelled damp. We were on the main street and it was so incredibly noisy. The old windows rattled in the wind and i noticed a crack in one of the top panes. There was insufficient light in the bathroom so could hardly see when putting on my makeup. There was no hot water to wash our hands or face either. We tried to use the air conditioning unit to heat the room but it rattled and was full of dust! My partner was so cold he had to use a pillow to block off the draft coming in the window. The bed was comfortable that was the only good thing. We were really disappointed that there was no information when booking to say that the bar and restaurant were closed as if this was the case we would have booked somewhere else. The breakfast was adequate I cannot complain about this. All staff we encountered were also pleasant so I cannot complain about this. On checking out I was surprised to open the lift and see piles of blue laundry bags lying in the ground. I understand this needs to be done but perhaps more behind the scenes then left lying at the customers lift. I work in Dublin and pass this hotel every single day. I was sure having stayed in other O Callaghan hotels and also seeing the number if guests arriving and checking out that it was a decent place to stay. Having paid over €200 for a one night stay we were sorely disappointed. The hotel us tired and in need of refurbishment. I would suggest to anyone staying while this hotel is a great location for exploring Dublin be sure to ask for a room not facing on to the main street. Otherwise take earplugs if you want a good nights sleep. I always read hotel reviews before I book and generally I like to form my own opinion. I have never once given a hotel a bad review but really was sorely disappointed. Collapse

We stayed here 6-8th October to meet up with family. Due to an early morning flight we arrived at the hotel about 9am planning to leave our bags while we went to explore the city. When we arrived we were told we could have our room straight away. There was a little bit of confusion about the room but the receptionist dealt with it very quickly. We had a junior suite on the 3rd floor, which was lovely and roomy; and elegantly decorated. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, in particular keeping a birthday cake in the fridge for me. We ate breakfast in the hotel on the Saturday morning, it was ok, but nothing special for 13.5 euro. The other mornings we ate in the city for a fraction of the price. The hotel restaurant was closed for refurbishment but we were unlikely to have used it, preferring to eat in different places in the city. The hotel is ideally situated very close to many of the museums and just across the road from the hop on, hop off bus route as well as the airport bus. Dublin is overall very expensive but if we were to come back we would definitely stay in the Mont Clare again. Collapse

My husband and I stayed at the hotel during September. It is undoubtedly very well located and the female staff nice and helpful. They gave us a twin room with terribly uncomfortable beds. The mattresses should be replaced. It is impossible to sleep comfortably. In our opinion, It has no good value for money. Collapse
Good location, marvelous city

This hotel is on walking distance of the centre of the city. It is not the newest but clean and everything works. Breakfast is a nice selection of food and overall the hotel offers good value for money.

Really tired hotel- my room reeked of stale cigarette smoke. The faucets in the room were so dangerous. The water from the tap would unexpectedly become boiling hot; I was scalded on more than one occasion. Also, brushing one's teeth using boiling water is an experience I would not wish to repeat. Breakfast was hugely disappointing. Really poor quality meat- most probably the cheapest of the frozen variety. Overall, this was a bad stay. While the hotel is close to the city centre, this does not make up for the poor stay and high cost. Bad value. Much better places in Dublin. Collapse
