Reviewed 30 July 2014

Myself and my wife stayed for one night at the hotel for a 40th birthday. We ended up eating from Mexican style menu earlier in the day in the main bar and it was very tasty and reasonably priced. The room was clean and while small, it was very comfortable. A very nice bathroom with a proper shower. The hotel can be a bit noisy as the main street is right outside and there is a nightclub, but this is only on a Friday and Saturday and they actually offer ear plugs if you ask! But the noise isn’t especially bad. The staff are an absolute credit to the hotel though. From the check-in, to the bar staff, people serving the food, to the staff at the 40th. Every single one of them were warm, friendly and good fun. If you’re in Drogheda or surrounding areas, than you could do a lot worse then spend you nights here.

Dear Guest.

What a great review, thanks for taking the time to write such positive comments on your recent stay.
I had passed your review onto all involved who were delighted with your comments too.
As you mentioned, we are located on the main street, which is great if exploring the area, but can be slightly noisy Friday and Saturday nights. We have rooms towards the back of the hotel which are quiet. If you are in Drogheda again, let me know and I can allocate a quieter room.

Best Regards

We have traveled many times to Ireland but this was the first time we headed up North. Unsure of the area, I relied on reviews on TripAdvisor. The positive reviews were accurate. Westcourt hotel is located in a lovely little Irish city named Drogheda. They accommodated an early arrival (perfect for arrival day from Dublin Airport) so we could rest, shower, and begin our vacation. The rooms were clean and updated and their restaurant, West 29, was delicious.

Room Tip: You can request a quiet room if staying when their nightclub is open.

The Westcourt is a real gem, centrally located in the middle of Drogheda town. We stayed for one night and were really pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been recently renovated and is very well maintained. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. To boot, the hotel has arguably the best restaurant in the region. Overall, a firm thumbs up for this hotel.

Room Tip: There i a night club nearby so best to ask staff for quiet room.

We stayed just one night at the Westcourt Hotel and it was great value for money.
We had dinner in the restaurant West 29 which was excellent.The service was great and the friendly staff made a great effort with all the customers.
Our rooms were newly refurbished and very clean.
Would definitely return again

Stopped here last weekend as going to the Bellewstown horse race festival.

We arrived on the Friday and one of our rooms was ready and it was only 1030am, we'd emailed a few days before asking for somewhere to shower and such and they managed it - a great start.

Room was clean and bright, flat screen TV was fine and the shower hot and powerful - perfect.

The 2nd room wasn't ready so we popped out for a few drinks on the promise the fantastic Audrey on Reception would ring me as soon as it was ready - and call she did, well done Audrey, great service.

The town of Drogheda is a lively place, plenty of local bars and we really enjoyed it.
The town is noisy so beware.
The hotel has a bar and a nightclub attached so can be a little lively, if a quiet stay is wanted this may not be the place to be honest, although you could request a quieter room at the rear.

Breakfast was fab, real good quality and great service.

Sarah was the other Reception girl and she did a great job helping us with taxi's, thanks again.

The hotel was great, it's lively so beware but the main thing is the staff, they're great !!

Well done to all

I was very pleased with the Westcourt. It's right in the middle of town and literally on top of all the action in the town. Everything (except the big mall) is less than 5 minutes walk.
The hotel is very modern on the ground floor. The bar caters very well for most tastes. Very comfortable restaurant with good food. The breakfast can be very big but they offer a 'mini' version of a full Irish.
Rooms are clean and comfortable. Nothing much to look at from the rooms at the rear but if you want a view ask for a room over the street at the front.
For those who like a bit of quiet, Drogheda is a lively town so get a room on the third (top) floor as it takes you well above any noise.
Parking is almost non-existent on the front street but the hotel will validate your parking in the shopping centre car park to the rear of the hotel - tricky to find but it's first right past the hotel front entrance - down the lane and second right into the car park.

Room Tip: For peace and quiet, a room on the top flooror, at the rear if you don't mind not having a view.
