HOW DO I GET TO THE DRURY COURT HOTEL?
Please see our directions page for our exact location and directions to the hotel
For transportation from Dublin airport to Drury Court Hotel, there are a number of convenient options available:
- Air Coach: This costs €8.00 per person each way, and the blue buses are located outside the arrivals hall. The journey into town takes approximately 45 minutes, and the closest stop to the hotel is on Kildare Street, just by Stephen's Green. From here it is approximately a 10 minute walk to our hotel.
- 747/ 757 AirLink Bus: These green buses costs €7.00 per person each way, and are also located outside the arrivals hall. The journey into town takes approximately 50 minutes, and the closest stops to the hotel are either located on Aston Quay/ Temple Bar (747) or Stephen's Green (757). From here it is again a 10 minute walk to our hotel.
- No. 16 Public Bus: This is a public bus and costs €3.30 (exact change) each way. The journey into town takes approximately 1 hour 10 minutes, and the closest stop to the hotel is George's Street Arcade. From here it is a 2 minute walk to our hotel.
- Taxi: The taxi rank is located outside the arrivals hall at the airport. The fare to our hotel should cost in the region of €35.00 and the journey should take approximately 30 minutes. If given the option, we do not recommend going through the port tunnel, as this adds €10.00 to the fare but does not save much time reaching our location. Most taxis in Dublin do not take credit card, so please be sure to have some Euros in cash to pay them (and request a receipt in case you need to contact your driver again).
WHAT TIME IS CHECK IN/OUT?
Check In is from 3pm each day; if you require an early check in, please contact reception directly (+35314751988) prior to arrival and we shall do our best to accommodate you. Please note, however, that as our rooms are allocated on a daily basis and are dependent on departures, we cannot guarantee an early check in. Check Out is at 12 noon on the day of departure. Late check outs until 2.30pm can be arranged, subject to availability and a supplementary fee of €20.00. Please contact the hotel directly (+35314751988) to enquire about this.We offer a 24 hour reception service for all of our guests to accommodate all arrival times.
CAN I STORE MY BAGS SOMEWHERE BEFORE/AFTER MY STAY?
WHAT IS THE DRURY COURT HOTEL CANCELLATION POLICY?
For rooms that are not advance purchase, we require 48 hours cancellation notice in writing (either via fax/email or post) to cancel the rooms without charge. Credit/Debit cards are used to secure the booking only, unless reserving one of our advance purchase rates: there is no deposit for booking a room at the Drury Court Hotel and full payment will be taken on arrival.

WILL IT BE SUNNY FOR MY STAY IN DUBLIN?
Dublin is notorious for its inconsistent climate and although, according to the calendar, Irish Summer begins on 1st May and last until 1st August, the weather doesn’t always follow this!
Therefore we recommend that our guests have a look at the online forecast before travelling to avoid any weather related surprises during their time in Dublin.

Should you wish to guarantee an early check in, we highly recommend reserving the previous night and informing us of this: the room will be checked in early and ready on arrival.
