“secound time back”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

was there in October last year came back in January the staff were pleasant enough and nice that I was remembered by some, the food in general was good although on the sunday there were a few complaints regarding the food by my table and the table next to ours, although the manager was kind enough to deal with the situations there was one waiter that was rude and unprofessional which I had not experienced before. this has not put me off as I do like the west county hotel but such matters must be addressed by the manager.

Firstly the staff are all excellent and the service was great throughout our stay. Also the hotel is in a great location, its a 10min bus ride from the centre which meant it was easy to get into town but also that the hotel was not full of hens and stags.

The downside is that its really dated, the rooms especially the bathrooms would be no higher than 2 star for me. The shower was so full of limescale that it sprayed the whole bathroom and the water out of the bath taps was brown.

Good value group on offer but we won't be back.

Dear jolleyk,

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel on Tripadvisor. We use all reviews to assist us in improving the customer experience for all future guests.

Thank you for your kind words on our friendly staff and location. We make every effort to create a "Home away from Home" atmosphere for all guests.

We are currently upgrading the bedrooms in the hotel, with the first new bathroom installed in one of the rooms last week. These upgrades will be gradually made to all bedrooms, in the hope that our 2 star hotel will be granted 3 stars by the appropriate authorities.

We hope to see you return to the hotel in the future to experience these upgrades mentioned that will no doubt improve all guests' stays.

Kind Regards,
Ulick Colgan,
Marketing Manager,

the West is a grand location in Chapelizod, a village with much history. The hotel is clean and comfortable and has everything the traveller needs . Even for us smokers! The staff are wonderful. Working Daft hours mind you Patrick! Buses run all the time to city centre 2 euro 50 cents exact change needed. The food is good although there was a small hiccup with my chowder easily resolved. There's music on a Saturday night that starts at 10 30 pm.

My husband and I stayed here in Jan 2014 and had a great time, the room is basic but clean although the bathroom is very small, we stayed 2 nights and our 2nd night we were upgraded to a better room due to my husband falling in the small bath, the staff were great + very helpful to us, the breakfast was good + we stayed for dinner 1 night and were given very good service food was nice,

staff were very good in giving information on bus tours and bus to Dublin City centre from the hotel, the hotel is in a excellent location near Phoenix Park.

We also found a wonderful Restaurant not far from the hotel called Anglers Rest the best food I have ever tasted it is a bit expensive but worth every euro, you do need a car to get to it if you drive from the hotel to the village turn left at the lights and over the bridge turn left again and continue for about 3 mile you will drive up a hill and at the top take a left down to the bottom of the road the Anglers Rest is on the right hand side you will need to book as its very popular.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and would book it again, I cant understand anyone giving bad reviews on this hotel, yes it is a older hotel yes the furniture is a bit dated but they are doing the rooms up and they keep it very clean and the staff are very helpful in anything you might need, car parking is free, + the bus stop is across the road so what more could you ask for.

Thank you to all the staff and Management of this hotel are weekend stay was wonderful.

Room Tip: Top floor front facing last room on the end. Just turn to the right hand side when you come out of...

While our stay in the West County Hotel was comfortable and we certainly got value for money with our Groupon Deal... Breakfast was excellent, would recommend the poached eggs. Our evening meal was good, but the menu choice wasn't very exciting. Our room was clean and warm, but the decor could do with an update, especially the shower / bath, when filling the bath the shower continues to run and vise versa.
All the Staff were very pleasant and inviting.

We would be happy to stay at your hotel again.
