“Great little hotel in a fabulous location”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Perfect location! Right in the middle of things and a really lovely walk. Its close to some great bars and attractions. The room was large and bright, I was worried about the noise in our 2nd floor street front room as the live music from the bar downstairs was blazing when we checked in at 10pm but all was quiet when we returned after visiting a few of Dublin's lovely bars.

For me, the best hotels offer a great bed, a great shower and a great breakfast. This one got 1.5 of these things. The breakfast was delicious, the staff extremely friendly and they remembered what we wanted. The bed was okay, Im a fan of a harder bed and this was certainly on the hard side. The shower was dissappointing. It wasnt very strong and seemed to stop quite a lot. It seemed like there maybe a problem with it but it was really a minimal gripe in an otherwise faultless 2 night stay. Would definately reccommend for anyone wanting a cheap and very cheerful place to stay in central Dublin.

Room Tip: Back room if you like it quieter.

The location is really great for seeing Dublin - in the Temple Bar district (this refers to the area near the river where a sand bar built up, and not pubs), but not in an especially noisy area, so the hotel is pretty quiet. An easy walk to Grafton Street, Trinity University, St. Stephens Green, St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin Castle, museums, very close to a nice supermarket with a deli in a nearby mall, and is surrounded by many restaurants and pubs. The walk to Hueston Station (the rail point to access other cities in Ireland) is a 20 to 25 minute walk, but takes you along the river and past The Brazen Head - Ireland's oldest pub (we stopped there for dinner and a Guiness after our trip to Cork and the Blarney Castle). Very friendly & helpful staff, large clean room with wi-fi, comfortable bed, and a nice large bath. We stayed three nights, and would definitely stay here on our next trip to Dublin - a great hotel for the price(about $100.00 US / EU 65 per night)!

Room Tip: I booked online and paid EU 65, or about $100 US per night

We were going to see Riverdance in the Gaiety Theatre and wanted somewhere nearby for an overnight stay. The Drury Court Hotel fitted the bill perfectly. We had an offer called the Sunday Sinner which included bed and breakfast and a bottle of wine in your room. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all very friendly and helpful. We found the hotel very central and just a short walk to the famous Temple Bar. I would definitely stay here again and I would also reccommend Riverdance.

We have stayed in this hotel several times before and love it for its great location just off Grafton St. Loads of small restaurants just on the doorstep lovely for a coffee or breakfast if your not having breakfast included. We didnt on this trip and that was a mistake as we paid similar in Bewleys for a not as good breakfast!.
Bedroom was spacious and well appointed but no small touches like shampoos etc Only soap dispensor s even in the bath/shower. Warning sign to use bath mat as bath very slippery (which it was) but no bath mat was available.
Reception area very limited but Bar Bia which opens off reception area is spacious and welcoming.

This hotel is in a good location close to all the main sites. We booked through the hotel's website which advertised free parking. When we checked in they wanted us to pay for it. After explaining the situation the manager said it was ok. Once we got into our room we found a used coffee cup from the previous guest and a used towel in the bath. Only managed to sleep at 2am as there is a club next door. A nice hotel with useless house keeping and you won't sleep!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your patience in relation to our change of parking policy which, as you correctly stated was originally included in some Hotel Rates. In relation to the housekeeping matter raised I have taken the appropriate steps to ensure that it does not happen again and can only assure you it is most certainly not the standrad we aspire to or indicative of our usual standard of service. Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention.
Kind Regards,
David Cahil
General Manager

This was in a good location without being the noisy-all-night Temple Bar area.
A short and pleasant walk from the O'Connell Street Shopping District and lively spots.

Worth a visit:- St. Stephen's Green Park and the nearby (secret) Garden, Iveagh.

Word of warning, despite online booking requesting Bed&Breakfast, system defaulted to room only and about an extra 72 Euro for the breakfasts we had.

Room Tip: Our side room 404 overlooked a side street Diggles Lane/The Hairy Lemon Pub - and down below the 2 h...

We recently stayed at the Drury Court Hotel and found our room to be quite large and very comfortable and relaxing with a good sized bathroom, wardrobe and plenty of other facilities and services available. The breakfast was excellent (had the full irish breakfast) and there were lots of cereals, juices, croissants, cheese, salmon, you name it they had it there. They have their own bar / restaurant in the evenings which was always busy, we will have dinner there the next time we are staying with them. All the staff were polite and helpful. It is just a very short walk from Grafton Street itself and we just walked everywhere we needed to go. We found the hotel to be a very good, comfortable and convenient place to stay in Dublin that is also reasonably priced, we recommend it to our friends and family and to all who read this. Regards EM.
