O'Callaghan, accompanied by his mother Marie and wife Jenny, was taking time out ahead of today's Pro12 game against Leinster.
Donncha and Jenny welcomed their third child, six-month-old baby Robyn, last year.
The couple also have two young daughters, Sophie and Anna.
The 34-year-old rugby star said, with so many away matches over the years, he missed out on quality time with his girls. "It's tough because of what I do. You have to travel a lot and that's a hard part of it," he said.
Proceeds from yesterday's lunch will go towards helping mothers in vulnerable situations around the world to give birth in safe environments.
The event – held in association with the Irish women's clothes brand, Fran and Jane – included a fashion showcase.
Guests were also given a first look at a new UNICEF video starring O'Callaghan as part of the campaign to eradicate polio. It followed the rugby player's recent fact-finding mission to Nigeria.
UNICEF Ireland's chief executive, Peter Power, updated the gathering on the organisation's activity around the globe helping children to survive and thrive.
