Very nice hotel in a fantastic location. There are many places to shop, eat or sightsee at within very easy walking distance. The rates are steep but I thought the location made it worth it. The breakfast buffet was tasty and provides for a very filling breakfast but the cost is also steep. The room was very nice and the internet was free which surprised me. I was attending meetings at the hotel and the meeting room was large, had internet access and had a projector. It made for a nice location for business.

Photos are exactly correct. Very nice room. Great coffee maker in room.
All employees are very attentive. Did not partake of the optional breakfast,
as I thought it was too expensive for someone who only wants an egg and
pc. of toast. Did not go to their restaurant, but did go to their cafe Novo.
That was quite good. Location is great, as everyone else has mentioned.
Right out the door and you're on Grafton St. Taxis are always waiting
in front if you need one. Wish we had had time to try the afternoon tea.
Seems most people there were more "dressed" than we. We are more
"jeans" people, but know when and where to wear them. I would for sure
stay here again.

We stayed at The Westbury Hotel for a weekend. If you are traveling with small children, ask for room 203. There was a closet big enough to stick two baby cots in! My son does not sleep well when others are up and going to bed at 8PM isn't fun for me so this worked out very well.

The service was lovely, the housekeeping staff was friendly, the ammenities were lovely and the bed was soft.

We also used the hotel babysitting service and had a nice experience with a very sweet babysitter, Agnes. We recommend her too :)

The Westbury has the classic problems of an old city-centre urban hotel whose refurbishment was probably constrained by its original layout and build quality. Standard rooms are cramped and sound-proofing astonishingly poor. The top floor room I was initially allocated had a persistent buzz from a roof-top fan which was eventually joined by tv noise from the room next door. I moved to a lower floor room that was slightly better but I still noticed that noise from the corridor and from adjoining rooms was very audible. This would be a particular issue if you were in Dublin for some serious purpose and needed sleep as many occupants of this hotel seem to be in Dublin to party (for which the hotel is well located being close to Temple Bar and other concentrations of bars/ clubs). Meanwhile the general feel of the hotel is rather dated, pompous and stodgy - you easily picture cabals of Irish politicians and property developers dining here in the boom years.

On the positive side all my service encounters were friendly and helpful.And the breakfast was good.

Having spent a lot of time choosing a hotel in Dublin, I was not disappointed with the Westbury. The staff were very helpful and despite arriving many hours before official check-in time, I was phoned after about an hour to say the room was free. It is a little noisey if you are right at the front, but nothing that ear-plugs won't solve. Room was really clean and furnishings all very attractive and fresh. My partner loved the coffee machine! Only gripe is that room service was quite poor - could not get through on phone for ages (reception had to do it for me in end) and the food was not very good - not as described on menu. However, I would still recommend it highly.

Went to the Westbury for a weekend trip to dublin. It's perfectly located in the center of the irish capital and the service was exceptional! Great shopping and the Trinity college as a starting point for sightseeing in closest distance. The only minor drawback - if you need one - was the minibar, as this was really more a bar than a fridge.
