Reviews - The Drury Court Hotel

Great location but very noisy at week-ends

Fri and Sat nights did not get any sleep until 3 am due to music from bar attached to hotel.Had to move rooms because of sewerage smell (this seemed to be a problem in corridors too) and this caused so much hassle - we were disturbed at 12.30am on Fri by another guest opening our door, saying this was their room (apparently night staff hadn't been informed of change!)Staff at b'fast also had us down for original room. No plug in bath (even after I requested one)and hotel quite expensive for what you get.Hotel is in great location but should mention bar noise on web-site.

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Drury Court Hotel

Excellent Hotel great rates!

from trippin86
Stayed for a weekend was a last min idea and I must say for the location and service the rate was really a steal!!...would easily have payed more! in the middle of everything excellent bars and restaurants at a stones throw... reception staff were really helpfull and so polite,rooms really spacious and spotless...was out every night so didnt hear any noise after 3am when we were in the room...A+++++++ property and service!!!! : )
We will be back......

Super Location!

from Schnaggletooth
The hotel is in a fabulous location. Two streets down from Grafton Sreet in Lower Stephens Green. No taxi's were needed all weekend. We were in room 505 and didn't hear any street noise at all. Yes the reception area is simple but what more do you want! The staff were freindly, helpful and very curtious. The bar has a really nice feel to it and they make excellent pizza's and mohitos! Graet value for money too! This was my seventh time in Dublin and I have stayed in a number of hotels including the Burlington but for my money this is the best hotel for location and has everything you could need for a girlie weekend break. They also offer 10% for returning guests. For Grafton Street and trendy bars look no further than this gem of a hotel! Oh, and the bed was really comfy too!!

Great Location

from Aiobheann
Stayed in the Drury Court hotel in Sept with my partner. The staff where very friendly and helpful. The hotel was fine the only problem I would say is the noise at night time. The rooms are fine and all was clean. The hotel is in an excellant location just off Grafton Street.

Not a nice hotel

from ChungkingExpress
I stayed at this hotel one night in September 2006 in room 106. I found the hotel globally quite ugly, the lobby is very simple, no charm at all. The room was quite spacious but dark. The bathroom was OK but the light was too low. Breakfast was disappointing, with low quality products. I stayed on a Sunday night so maybe this is why I didn't suffer from the noise at night but given the location of the hotel and the fact that the room was not isolated (we could hear the air conditioning from the building facing the hotel although this did not prevent me to sleep), I can understand the previous reviews. During a few minutes I could hear the music from the bar downstairs but it stopped at 11.30 pm, before I went to sleep.

t expect to sleep

from pagopago
My husband and I were put in Room 106 on a hot Saturday night. The bass from the music blaring in the bar directly below our room came up through the floor until the bar closed at 2:30 am. We were forced to keep our windows open because there was no fan or air conditioning in the room. The loud voices of the bar patrons from the street below only added to the noise level.
We complained to the desk receptionist, and apologies were made. The man promised to talk to the hotel manager about it and arrange a room discount given the circumstances. Sunday morning when we checked out, a new desk person "did not have the authority" to discount our room for our trouble, but gave us the email address of the hotel manager, Paul Hand.
In responding to our email, he promised to investigate the matter and respond promptly.
Despite our followup email, we never heard back from him.
Unless you plan on experiencing the night life of Dublin until 2:30 am, we would NOT RECOMMEND staying at the Drury Court.

Brilliant location, but poor room and facilities

from wasamaid
My wife, adult daughter and I occupied a triple room at the Drury Court on the nights of 4 and 5 July 2006 (at a room rate of Euro 170 per night, including breakfast). The hotel's location in Lower Stephens Street is brilliant, close to Grafton Street and Temple Bar. But that's the end of my favourable comments. Our room on the 4th. floor was hot and humid, as the temperature control did not function. As a consequence, we had no option but to open the windows for ventillation, and this exposed us to night-time people and machinery noises from the laneway below. Our television was well past its use-by date, and no amount of tuning could establish a picture with appropriate colour or contrast. We had booked for 3 persons, but were supplied with towels for 2. Breakfast was served in a pokey basement, and the buffet food choices were not replenished as they were eaten. Any guests who arrived for breakfast in the last hour or so of the scheduled breakfast time found very slim pickings of food. On our first morning we arrived for breakfast at 9.15am (with breakfast advertised until 10.00am) and found that much of the food had been eaten by earlier diners, and not refilled. A choice of another hotel would be sensible.

Sleepless night....on a MONDAY!!

from MilaMundy
We'd stayed here once before and it was fine, so when we booked it again we weren't expecting things to be so different. I know there were issues with nightclub/late bar noise, but this was a Monday night, so I figured we'd be fine.

We were given Room 108 - a triple room on the first floor, overlooking the narrow street at the side of the hotel. What a disaster!

We were first woken at about 4am to find the bottle carts from the hotel/nightclub across the street being emptied. This lasted 5-10 minutes.

Then at 6.45am a truck full of beer kegs pulled up RIGHT UNDER OUR WINDOW, and some guys proceeded to throw kegs off the (still-running!) truck onto the street, and load up the empties. The noise was INCREDIBLE! It lasted until about 7am, and we were just dozing off again when we were woken for the third time at about 8am - more movement of kegs across the street again - I think they had opened the cellar, and were now throwing the kegs down there! We just got up then - so much for relaxation...

It's put me right off this hotel - and I wouldn't mind, only the rooms and breakfast are good for the price. However, I will never take this risk again, and if you choose to stay here, I would strongly suggest that you refuse Room 108.

Rude reception staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had a few problems with our room some of the lights did not work which we reported and was never fixed. The extractor fan in the bathroom was really noisy and kept us awake. Thee was a hole in by bed covering and the bathroom needed to be refurbished but we put up with this. Dirty linen was left by the lift for the whole of our stay. Breakfast also was not the best in a dingy room in the basement. But I was really upset on how I was treated on reception on checkout because I queried the biil the receptionist said 'oh [--]' and then started raising her voice. I was not going to do a review but I have now sent 3 emails and have never received a reply from any of them. So I now feel I should let people know about the lack of customer care.

could be better

from debzie
I looked at your reviews before I went. The reviews were mixed and the good price swayed me into giving it a try. We arrived at about 1pm. The room wasn't ready. The receptionist took our bags off us, we returned at 4pm. The room was ready. The room was on the 4th floor. The room was spacious. There was a patch on the quilt, The tiles on the bathroom wall were loose. There was tea and coffee in the hospitality tray. The room was noisy as there are clubs underneath and across the road, particularly noisy one night about half two. The breakfast was poor. My boyfriend ordered pancakes which were rock hard. The toaster broke down the next morning. I asked the hotel to book me a taxi on check out morning so I could catch the bus to the ferry. They forgot. We missed our ferry bus and had to pay for two taxis.

Loved it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The receptionist welcomes you warmly & are super helpful!! They do things extremely quickly and efficiently, so no-one really can argue about how bad their service is coz it really was gr8!!
Lots and lots of smiley workers, makes ur stay a lot beta!! (u dont often get that in hotels!)
Clean rooms, very cosy and nicely decorated, and the bathrooms are nice too. Just the shower is slightly dodgy coz when you turn them off, it turns freezing, so run away from it before it gets u!
The only real main problems are that its quite noisy in the morning so it could wake you up!!
its fairly close to the river, and temple bar, within very short walking distance. stephens green shopping centre just round the corner to get pressies for families & friends!! Lots of bars and clubs nearby so PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG!!
Hotel bar is so cosy and nice, looks amazing for a hotel bar!!
i loved my stay & i definately would want to go there again! it was amazin going there with a large group of my mates and the price is amazing!

Top Local Tips for Dublin

St.Patrick's Cathedral Find out ahead of time when you can go in the cathedral and get there early because there will be a wait. Also, while it's a must-see, know ahead of time that it's become a cliche tourist trap replete with cash register upon entry where you must pay to get in (like a ride at Disney). Then you are immediately in the middle of a "gift shop" selling Dublin and St.Patrick souvenirs. Disappointing, but it was amazing to walk through and read it's history.

Dublin zoo A must do. The zoo is green and leafy. The animals have large areas to live and the park itself is great. Excelent for kids and adults alike. Baby elephant was so cute!

Desperate for fresh food? Instead of buying everyday provisions from Londis and Centra, go and have a look at Dunnes Stores. You won't be robbed €1.50 for 3 pieces of fruit there!
