6b. Dublin City Historic Buildings - Davenport Hotel, The D'Olier Chambers

The Georgian Davenport  Hotel, Merrion Square in the heart of old Georgian Dublin, Dublin City, Ireland.

Louis Davenport hired Spokane architect Kirtland Kelsey Cutter (1860-1939) to design the Davenport hotel, Merrion Square built in 1914 in some style in the heart of old Georgian Dublin. The current Davenport Hotel dates only to the early 1990s not 1914! It was for many years the Merrion Hall, a centre for evangelical Protestants in Dublin. You'll find it mentioned as such in Brendan Behan's Borstal Boy (published circa 1950 a.f.a.i.k.). The facade was retained and incorporated into the new hotel when the old building burnt down; the current structure dates only to 1993. (thanks to Éamonn Gaines for the information)
