Audrey Coffey, 25, from Caranane, Fedamore, Co Limerick, died from injuries after being impaled on a street railing.
Limerick Coroners Court was told she was moderately intoxicated from alcohol and a prescription drug at the time.
The inquest heard she and Thomas O’Hagen went to an apartment in Clare Street on June 23 last and he had brought drink. They had been drinking earlier for a few hours at another address in Kilteragh.
Ms Coffey, according to Mr O’Hagen, was acting unusual and started talking about a friend who had killed herself. He was “freaked out” by this.
She went into another room and, a few moments later, he went in and saw her “going down outside the window”.
A report by state pathologist Dr Marie Cassidy found Ms Coffey had suffered bleeding from the brain stem, a broken neck and a wound to her leg caused from being impaled on an outside railing.
