We arrived early and were greated by Evelyn who offered us breakfast downstairs and then a suggested itinerary for the time while our room was prepared. Throughout the stay she and the staff made every effort to see that we had everything we needed and offered helpful suggestions for our Dublin visit. The area where The Waterloo House is locaded...

We selected Waterloo House for several reasons: We enjoy guest houses; breakfast included; convenient location. We were not disappointed. Our room was comfortable, and since we would be touring most of the day, it was ideal. The breakfast dishes available were varied and tasty, and the dining room was bright and cheery. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to... More

Overall our stay here was great. To start with, the staff went above and beyond. They were friendly, they bought my parents tea in the lounge while they read listening to classical music. They helped with directions, recommended great food, booked taxis etc. Generally breakfast was great, there was wonderful fresh cut fruit, and the waffles were homemade and wonderful.... More

If you wish to stay in an upmarket B&B in Dublin City, Waterloo House is a good choice. I stayed on the first floor in a room facing onto the road - I usually request a 'quiet' room but the room was book by a colleague & I was woken up by the traffic noise before 7 am despite it... More

I found Waterloo House to be very clean and comfortable. We were on the second floor, but there's a lift to get the luggage up there, so not a problem. This is in a very quiet area, and walking around, we saw 2 embassies within a block or so. This was one of our most expensive accommodations during our 2... More

We've stayed for 3 nights at the Waterloo House; clean room and spacious enough, bathroom is also clean and comfortable. The rooms are not outdated yet but within some time some renovation will be necessary. The breakfast is great (full Irish breakfast with black and white pudding, bacon, toast, ... one word: delicious after a night full of Guinness :-)... More

I stayed at Waterloo house for a bit longer than a week at it was really like being at home. The room was beautiful, clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times (especial thanks to Evelyn) and the breakfast in the sunny patio with views at the back garden was the best way to start the day.... More

We found Waterloo House to be quite lovely. We arrived in the evening, and were greeted by our hostess with a smile & charm. She asked if we needed anything and made recommendations for dinner spots. Our room (90euro) was on the smaller side, but felt like it was part of an old mansion. It had several old furniture pieces... More

This was our second time staying at the Waterloo House B&B in the Ballsbridge area of Dublin. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to be near the city center, but not right in the middle of it. The B&B is a 10-15 minute walk to the center of Dublin. The parking for our rental car was included and... More

This is the first review that I've ever written! I had an amazing time at the Waterloo Guesthouse. There is a personal touch, attention to detail and thoughtffulness that is unmatched. If you're looking for a cozy, quaint accomodation in Dublin, then the Guesthouse is for you! Thank you everyone for a wonderful stay!
