My friends and I stayed in a suite at this hotel. The room was very large and the decor was superb, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and views over Harcourt Street itself. The adjoining bathroom, although clean, was tiny and let the room down. The new tram system passes by the front of the hotel and this could cause problems for those who are light sleepers or who like a lie-in. The "ding" of the bell was very loud! I found service at the hotel to be very poor. Reception staff were extremely slow and spent more time chatting to friends than dealing with customers. We had to wait over 10 minutes to check out and as we had a flight to catch I found the delay unacceptable. Overall the hotel has great potential, but I think reception staff should be replaced, or given a lesson in customer care.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Harcourt Hotel

Great fun!

from shammy
Price is reasonable. Location is excellent. If you are going to Dublin for a great Craic then this place is a great spot. After pub crawling the after hours night club is crawling with attractive women and friendly people. Little Caesars food is great. I love Ireland and Dublin and I will stay again at the Harcourt.

Loved it!

from curlyEurope
We enjoyd the comfortable beds, friendly staff, clean room and the italian restaurant in the next building. And all this just a few minutes away from the city centre and lovely St. Stephens Park :)

Definitely planning to stay at Harcourts next time!

Great for short breaks

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed at the Harcourt 3 times within the last couple of years and always over a long weekend.

Dependant on your age, I would say that the Harcourt is great to stay if you are between 20-40 and enjoy a drink as well as good food. The bar is excellent and also they have nights with folk bands and traditional Irish music. There is also a nightclub for those who want the music to last that bit longer. I found this great because despite all the fantastic places to drink in Dublin, your choice after midnight isn`t that good.

I've always found the staff to be polite and helpful, but just don`t expect them to go out their way because the reception area always seems to be busy.

All in all, this is a good place to stay for those who enjoy a little bit of class but are not too snobby

Nice until we checked out

from zautumn
We stayed here in late April of 2004. This hotel was one of about 35 in a two month Europe trip. It was a bit hectic during check in, as people were crammed in the lobby with thier bags and such becuase the rooms were not cleaned yet. Once we finally got our room we had to go outside and into a second building. Considering it was Shaw's old house, the themes were cool and the house had a lot of charm, however, when we got to our room, up the stair with two huge backpacks, the maid were still there and the room was a mess! Back down the stairs, out the door, up the stairs, and back into the lobby. Anyway, to make a long story short, the room was fine, but when we checked out they tried to stick us with a 30 euro phone bill after they had already told us that calling card calls were free. We had to argue with the manager for at least 20 mintues. He even called the girl who was on duty that told us the calls would be free....he finally ripped up the bill after we became quite angry. Don't use the phone if you stay here.

Nightclub ruins this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed here on are honeymoon for 2 nights. The rooms are quite nice and the bed linens and towels are clean and fresh and the bar and restaurant are quite nice as well. The downfall of this hotel is the nightclub in the basement. I knew of the nightclub when I booked so when I arrived I asked to be moved to a room on a higher floor further from the nightclub, the staff was helpful and gave me a new room on the second floor. unfortunately this room faced Harcourt street and all we heard was the bells on the new tram system ringing and then at 3am all of the people from the nightclub spilled onto the street and continued to yell and scream until 4am. I would not recommend the hotel to anyone who wants a good nights sleep.

Would stay there again

from SueNrBlackpoolLancs
We had read previous reviews and were a little worried about the
negative comments by the time we arrived. However I have to say that we
were pleased with the Hotel and thought it was a great place to stay.
We had a triple room which was nicely decorated , the staff were very friendly, the bedding was spotless and the towels white, thick and fluffy ( and not shedding any fluff like in the previous review ). We had to pay extra for breakfast but we knew that when we booked and thought our rate was good value.

The bar was fun and the bar snacks tasty. We arrived late but they
still prepared something for us even though they should have stopped
serving them by then. However there is a down side and that has to be
that the club music IS very loud ! Our first 2 nights were OK but on
Thursday the club started about 11.30 and it was like being in the
middle of a very large noisy party. We closed the window and the sound
was more muffled but it was loud. We did nod off though before the club
closed so it wasn't too bad. ( We were on 2nd floor at the back ) The
trams are due to start running in June so all the roadworks will have
been finished by then. They didn't cause us any problems at all as
outside the Hotel they had finished all the work. It was only 5 minute
walk to St Stephens square so it was an excellent place to stay. I
would definately recommend it to anyone as long as they were aware that
the club may be noisy for some.

Depends what you are looking for....

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you are staying cheaply in Dublin for a few nights and want to have fun, then the Harcourt Hotel is probably for you. The rooms are adequately appointed, the staff more or less do their job, and it is located near Grafton St and St Stephens Green - you're not too far out.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of staying at the Harcourt are the two great bars (with beer garden,) nightclub and restaurant downstairs - very convenient. Overall it is a good experience for the money.

However there were some downsides: The rooms are a bit shabby, the towels are cheap and shed fluff everywhere and the whole place in noisy until 3am (I was on 3rd floor at the back and could still make out which songs were playing in the basement.) No breakfast was included in "my package" when for the price I feel it should have been. The road outside is still being dug up, although the bit directly outside the hotel seems to be finished.

Overall this hotel is an adequate venue for a few nights, but it is not recommended for anyone looking for a good nights sleep or something that bit special.

Excellent choice

from A TripAdvisor Member
Having read some of the reviews about this hotel I wondered if we had chosen wisely. No problems at all, having just returned from spending a few days break in Dublin. This was our third consecutive year, having spent our other times in different hotels, this was by far the best.
There is something for everyone here. There is still work being done on the road outside, but this cannot be blamed on the hotel itself. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Harcourt is hardly a Ritz, but is reasonable

from lizSiouxFalls_SD
Stayed at the Harcourt Hotel in July, 2003. No early check in, so if your flight gets in at 9 AM like ours did, you'll have to just leave your bags in a big room with everyone else's via a non-carrying bag boy. I'm not sure if this is typical of Ireland hotels or not so I'm not judging too harshly. Once we got into our room (which was right when they said we would), they were kind enough to give us a wake up call an hour later. The room was clean and comfortable. But at night they have a nightclub in the bottom of the hotel and if you are on the front of the hotel, you can hear it thumping and then hear the partiers leaving at 3 AM. Not too great.
