“Great spot in Dublin”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

This was a nice location. We enjoyed walking many places in Dublin from here. The accommodations were modern and comfortable. We felt like this was a nice transition back into the modern world after a week in quaint and remote Irish villages.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

The hotel is very good situated close to The walking street and shopping area and with many excellent restaurants within walking distance. The service from all staff are outstanding and the rooms provides very good comfort.

Room Tip: All rooms I have been in have been in the same outstanding quality

I love staying at this hotel in Grafton Street, it is so near to everything, and all the staff are lovely, all the porters greet you like long lost friends, the beds are comfy and include everything you need, I just could not get the hang of the coffee machine. This is my favourite stay in Dublin City.

This is a delightful hotel in a fantastic location. Just off Grafton Street, it's an easy walk to so many places: Trinity College, the Abbey Theatre, etc. My room at the hotel was comfortable and well appointed. The staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive.

Be sure to have afternoon tea or a meal in The Gallery. The rustic brown bread that came with my meal was honestly some of the most delicious bread I've ever had. The whole meal was excellent and relaxing.

There were only two things that were less than excellent. The wifi in my room was not great. However, staff came up to work on it immediately. They offered to move me to another room, but as we found a spot where the reception was decent I chose to stay where I was. The other part that was a bit disappointing was the wait staff in The Gallery. There were times when I felt like they were purposely avoiding looking at diners trying to get service. I found, though, that while they didn't always look my way, if I spoke up as they walked by they were very pleasant and efficient.

I will most certainly stay at The Westbury again the next time I'm in Dublin.

I absolutely loved our recent stay at the Westbury. I was extremely happy with the location off Grafton Street and between Trinity College on one side, and St. Stephen's Park on the other. There are tons of places to eat and shop within a few minutes walk of the hotel. The staff greeted us warmly and were very helpful throughout the week with whatever question or need arose. In particular, Hazel was a gem to work with from reservations through our stay. The hotel is beautiful, and has a gathering room for afternoon tea or drinks. It looked like Dublin society was meeting in the gathering room in the afternoons. Our room was elegantly decorated, quite, and comfortable. When I return to Dublin, I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: A limited number of family rooms for 4 are available if needed.

This is a very nice hotel. Beautifully decorated & polite, friendly staff. Hard to find! Happened upon it purely by accident & one of the staff actually got in car to direct us to front of hotel. Clean rooms & comfy beds.

The hotel was easy to walk to from central Dublin. Grafton street has little cafés and convince stores to take food or snacks back to the room.
It was very clean and elegant. Turndown service is around 6 pm so if you turn in early, put the DND sign on the door for privacy. The room had plenty of outlets; even one that took US style plugs. And there was one that took USB plugs took. An adaptor was handy, but not necessary.
The staff was professional, kind and helpful. The concierge desk was most helpful in answering questions about getting around. There is a queue of taxis outside most mornings so getting around that way is quite easy (albeit more expensive than the bus).
