I really liked this place. The location is in a pleasant part of town, easy walking distance into the city centre. Plus with parking provided, always a help in the city. The house decor was in keeping with the property, super clean and comfortable for such grandeur. My room was compact I'd say but perfectly comfortable, I could have stayed... More

This is one of the best guesthouses / family hotel I've been to. It is located in a beautiful part of Dublin and a short stroll from the city. It is beautifully decorated and when you walk in there is an air of calm which was great. My room was super overlooking the garden. Very comfy beds, fabulous fluffy pillows... More

Very nice hotel. Great value. Just a short walk (15 minutes or so from Temple Bar/City Center). Rooms are nicely decorated. Had a minor issue with our room, but the owner was eager to accommodate us and fix the problem. Rooms are newly redecorated and beds are comfy. Breakfast room is splendid, and the breakfast options are many. From the... More

Located in a classy part of Dublin, the rooms are elegant and very comfortable. The breakfast was first class, and all the staff were cheerful and very helpful. Highly recommended for those looking to sample Dublin's delights.

Accommodation: The room we had was rather small. The bed for two persons was smaller than a queen and there was hardly any room on the floor to put two medium luggage bags. However, although the furnishing was old, the room and bathroom was very clean. It was sufficient for a short, simple stay. Breakfast: Breakfast options were good -... More

Waterloo House is a gem. I stayed one night and loved it. It was very clean, welcoming and a good value. Breakfast was great and they were kind to serve me early when I forgot the time difference. The staff was helpful and thoughtful.

Over many years of visiting Dublin I passed by Waterloo House and wondered what it was like. I have now stayed there and was highly impressed by this upmarket bed and breakfast that emanates a home from home atmosphere. The situation is ideal for those who want to be close to Dublin city centre and only a five minute walk... More

Waterloo House is a much more flexible and accommodating option that the larger chain hotels. There was no problem checking in as soon as I arrived despite the fact that this was a good hour before the earliest stated check in time. Waterloo House is ideally located just off the City Centre in Dublin so the attractions and a good... More

I booked a last minute trip to Dublin, finding this hotel and booking merely a couple days before I arrived. It is a renovated Georgian (2 I think), classic of Dublin. I actually flew in with the owner Evelyn, who recognized me from the plane and said she almost asked me if I was staying there! I decided to try... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in February 2014. Pleasant location, close to a range of pubs, restaurants and a few shops. Easy walking distance to a number of parks and greens. Main shopping and entertainment areas are also walkable though a bus stop is conveniently located just outside. Convenient for Aviva stadium. Rooms clean and comfortable... More
