A good value very clean hotel within walking distance of many of Dublin's attractions. Evelyn was most helpful to us and the breakfast was one of the best we had in Ireland. Many thanks for a good stay and sorry it couldn't have been longer.

We stayed one night in Dublin and we were very happy with the Waterloo House. We arrived early and they gladly held our luggage while we explored the city. Our room included breakfast which was delicious! Very attentive staff!

The location, staff, breakfast are very good. The location is close to the Baggot Street Upper. There are many stores such as the pharmacy, supermarkets (TESCO), restaurants (WILLIAM SEARSON is very good and fair price), etc.. You can take 10 - 15 minutes walk to the central area of Dublin city and begin your sightseeing. The breakfast is very delicious.... More

Old Georgian homes(s) located near but not in, central city. Very nice room, excellent breakfast, friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff. Within five minute walk of good pub, banks, Insomnia (Irish Starbucks) and restaurants as well as trams (buses) for about $2 to take you to central city. Has an elegant B @ B ambience without being intrusive. Wi Fi, TV,... More

Stayed here for two nights. Great location, service fantastic and the breakfast was excellent. The room was a large double with lovely views. The place is in the heart of lovely south side of the city about 10 minute walk to Dublin, next door to the Aviva stadium and down the road for the main motorway to all of Ireland.... More

Well situated, charming period house on a tree-lined street, close to several pubs and restaurants. Comfortable and clean rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast in the light-filled conservatory is extensive and excellent. Nice lounge with complimentary Irish... More

Nice, charming guest house about 20 mins walk from City Centre. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very comfortable double bed. Excellent, healthy breakfasts with both buffet & full menu. Immediate area also has some good pubs & eateries. Great for runners, just off the canal.

Spent a night in this clean warm hotel. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. Room was small but nice furnishings and clean. Breakfast was great. Service was warm and enjoyed the puppies running in the yard. A little ways from town but only a 5 euro ab ride if you are tired.
