    Historical Traveler Reviews The Westbury Hotel Dublin

    Nice touches at the Wesbury

    from

    I have stayed at the Wesbury several times over the past 2 years. The location is second to none in Dublin. It is just off Grafton street. Has a free underground parking garage and if rooms are available will allow you to check in early. My husband and I have arrived at 9 AM and been allowed into our room. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed. The Molton Brown soaps and lotions are luxurious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rates do vary. I would check the Jury's website often. The Full Irish Breakfast is quite expensive, but the continental breakfast in the lobby is nice. The lounge is a fantastic place to relax with friends and family. Get there early in order to get a table. It is especially lovely when the pianist is playing.

    Very friendly staff

    from

    I stayed at the Westbury last May, 2004. I have since stayed at many other Dublin hotels (Clarence, Westin, Fitzwilliam) and have realized that the friendly service found at the Westbury is difficult to match. I loved the staff and spending time in the hotel lobby area having tea while looking out on Grafton Street. The atmosphere was great and the location cannot be beaten if you are looking for a city center hotel. The room was lovely, if a little traditional in decor. I would absolutely stay here again and appreciate this hotel even more now that I can compare it to others.

    Overpriced and Overrated

    from

    I suppose I am to blame for booking accommodation in the Westbury, one of the most luxurious five star Dublin hotels, and a member of Leading Hotels of the World to quote from their own website.

    I was aware the the price of €185 and indeed the it would be subject to a service charge of 12.5% however I expected a level of service that matched the price.

    To find chewing gum stuck below the bathroom sink and a used facecloth under the towels does not match the image. The fight outside my bedroom door that woke me at 4.30 am was not the hotel's fault but could have been handled better. The "light breakfast" that was included in the price consisted of self-service tea/coffee and a croisant. Not so much as a glass of orange juice! What could justify the service charge of 12.5%? Irish hotels are generally expensive but this one took the biscuit. Never again!

    Great location

    from

    Great location! Treated very well at the Westbury. Concierge was great, housekeeping turned down the bed at night. A little pricey, but very nice.

    Top Hotel In Dublin!

    from

    You can't get a better hotel in Dublin than the Westbury. The location is second to none, while the amenities are top notch. The rooms are well appointed and the full Irish Breakfast gets you off to a good start. 5 ***** all the way, you won't find a better choice for the price.

    Great Location

    from

    You cannot get a better spot that the Westbury for location - right in the middle of Dublin's high street shopping. Great hotel also if you have a car - there is a free underground carpark attached. The first floor lobby is a great meeting place for afternoon tea or a drink.Can be excellent value too - check the Jurys website.

    Loved the Westbury

    from

    My, 87 year old aunt and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. We enjoyed the scrumptious goumet meals served very elegantly at The Sandbank Bistro. However, we especially liked Afternoon Tea and cocktails in The Terrace Lounge listening to favorite tunes played by a delightful piano player. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The service was impeccable. The location simply added to the enjoyment of our vacation.

    Really loved the Westbury!

    from

    Can't beat the location and comfort of this wonderful hotel. We enjoyed a beautiful room here. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We really wanted to stay here for the location but it's not cheap--surprisingly, we got an excellent rate through the hotels website--check often because the rates fluctuate--I was about to give up when the 300 pound per day rate dropped to 140--this included breakfast, taxes and fees!

    We would stay again!

    from

    There were 10 of us staying at the Westbury in Dublin and every one loved it. We all agreed that if we were to return we would stay there again. The location is excellent and the service was wonderful. All of our rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The baths had plenty of room, the elevators were prompt and fast, and the continental breakfast in the lounge was lovely. The buffet in the restaurant was also excellent. It was a wonderful experience.

    Centre of Excellence

    from

    This is an excellent hotel for shopping in Dublin. Only minutes from the main thorough fare. Service is exemplary. Having had to wait two minutes for a drink in the bar, I was offered it for free. Rooms are clean, airy and have great beds. Public reception areas plush but lacking in character.

My friends had a lot of fun in Guinness (I mean I guess I did too…) and we were taught the 'proper way’ to drink a pint which actually makes a huge difference taste wise. After our storehouse tour and pints of Guinness we got lunch at a local restaurant. I had a pastrami sandwich but the boys got traditional Irish ...

After Hamo and I had headed to the Brazen Head, Ireland's oldest pub. It was pretty cool to drink in a pub founded in 1198; the guinness tasted the same though.

Again, I can't express how it was clearly very foreign, but almost eerily nostalgic. Something else unique: it was exactly the way I envisioned it. This is pretty significant since I have way overly active an imagination and I always embellish.
