Historical Traveler Reviews Jackson Court Hotel Dublin
Disgusting, dirty and noisy. The Jackson Court Hotel ruined our trip to Ireland! The bathroom was so filthy, lots of mold, hair and god knows what in the toilet!! The shower stall was so small that we had to squish through the dirty, moldy doors to take a shower. The bedding was much the same, lots of stains, no mattress cover. As the place was so filthy we were afraid to eat the "full Irish breakfast". The nightclub in the basement starts around 11:00pm, goes until 4:00am. The music is so loud that it felt like the band was in our room, (we were on the 3rd floor). After the music stops the yelling, throwing up, fighting and peeing goes on in the alleyway right under our room. We have filed a official complaint with the Irish Tourism Board! This place is definately not for average, clean people! It would be okay if you want to join the all night partying and get drunk so that you would not care about the filth! Never again!
What's that smell?
The room itself was pretty nice. Very small, but clean. The lobby and the bar on the main floor had a very interesting smell (think cat urine, over-cooked eggs and a splash of stale beer). The front desk staff was very helpful and nice. The real problem with the hotel - the noise from the nightclub at night. There is a bar on the main floor and a danceclub in the basement. The bar was OK, we had a few pints there during our stay. The nightclub was a bit obnoxious. The bass thumping at 4 am and then the recycling of glass bottles woke us up every night, and we were on the 3rd floor. The main attraction of this hotel is definitely the bar/club so if you are looking for a quite place to stay and rest after a long day of sightseeing - this is not the place. We did not have a horrible experience but we would not stay again.
Had a great time
10/04/04-12/04/04 - Just went for short break. Thought accommodation was great. Nightclub in Hotel is highly reccommended, as you don't have far to travel after a few guinness. Will be staying here again, next time in Dublin. Enjoy.
Looking for cheap accomodation in dublin,do not look at the Jackson Court!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rooms small and unclean Bathroom was not clean other people's hair in plug and over flow. Reception in poor state of repair and very messy general state of Hotel POOR. Cooked breakfarce yes breakfarce,order your coffee then wait till lunch to recive it breakfast starts at 07.30 sugest you go down then to get it fresh. PS if you do go take some plastic gloves and domestos and give them a hand
A Charming Hotel! A+++
We had a great stay at Jackson Court. After reading the other reviews we were nervous about our stay. It was great, clean, large bathrooms & rooms, friendly staff, best location in the city, great bar/nightclub (which did not keep us up all night), the only noise to be heard was sorting of bottles in the back alley in the morning. Otherwise great!!
Would surely stay here again!! A+++ Connor in the carvery is so charming!!
Wish I would have read these reviews before I went to Dublin. The Dublin tourist information center booked me a room here as they said it was a good deal (half price). The only way to get sleep here was to drink alot. I was on the third floor and was kept awake from the club in the basement and the drunks outside. I wouldn't stay here unless I wanted to party all night in the Club.
What a terrible place! We were here on the 14th of September and left as soon as possible the next day. The room was tiny and was on the "quiet side" of the hotel, so we were told. There is no quiet place here - the noise from the restaurant, bar, club and street went on from 7 pm well on to 4 am and we did not sleep at all. The stairwell smelled like a toilet and the floors were sticky. Our brief visit was much too long.
Don't go there it is hellish
The place was clean, food adequate, and a nice bar but on the weekend the place was sheer hell:
Problems..we basically could not get any sleep: 1 They are building a light railway in Harcourt Street (directly outside the hotel). On Sunday morning they starting working on it at 5am - very noisy.
2 There is a club in the basement (Copper Faced Jacks). The problem is not the music but the fights and arguments as they leave the club - including police cars coming to the club and an ambulance - this goes on till 3am when the club closes. We were on the 2nd floor and heard everything. irish people party big time on fridays, saturdays and sundays. As a result we felt like zombies.
3 When you swtich on the Tv its on maximum volume and there is no way of turning it down (there is no remote controls supplied to any hotel rooms). You are not told this by the receptionist but you have to ask for a remote.
We felt totally unrefreshed and angry after leaving that place.
We went with two other couples. All three rooms were pokey, small and claustraphobic. The shower was grubby and hard to get into if you were bigger than a size 10! The nightclub in the basement did not affect us - couldn't hear the music BUT we were woken every night between 3 and 4 when the revellers left. The top floor rooms of the hotel were obviously staff rooms in an early period, and should not be used for guests - far too small with very low ceilings
There is a nightclub in the basement from which people spill into a little alley way to fight and puke. My room overlooked this alley.
Closing the window kept most of the noise out and the stifling midsummer heat in. If your room is on the 1st floor there's no defence from the throb of music from below. The room I had - 207 - was tiny and the TV didn't work properly. Otherwise the hotel is OK.

After an overnight voyage we docked at our berth on the River Liffey not far from the

Although we have both been to Dublin before we hadn't been there for a long time and we

Tomorrow is a big day, I'm going to the other side of Ireland to see the Cliffs of Moher!
Until next time,
