We booked 2 nights for a double room in mid June (165 Euros/night). We were given room 40 facing the front of the property. It was very small but appeared in good condition. We went out for the day and arrived back late, not going to bed until midnight. It was by far the worst bed I have ever not... More

My wife and I spent the last night before flying back to the States at Waterloo House. It reminded us of the best of Oxford in the mid-1960s: charm, super-nice and helpful staff, lovely room, huge bathtub, and above all a wonderful sunny breakfast in the pergola-like garden dining room. Free parking, too. We recommend it highly.

I booked into Waterloo House for one night on business. I flew in to Dublin late so I arrived at the hotel just before midnight. I'd already informed them of my estimated arrival time so whilst the doors were naturally locked, the intercom was answered quickly and a young chap was there quickly to give me my room key. The...

Nice property on a quiet street. Friendly staff and clean rooms. The room I was in was quiet small and very hot, but comfortable enough. I had to leave at 7am and there was no one around so I didn't get to have breakfast and I had to just leave my key by reception door

Ideal location if you want somewhere to stay that is within walking distance of the centre but still quiet. Very handy as a base while in Dublin. Well maintained rooms and very nice breakfast, highly recommended.

Stayed two nights at Waterloo. Great location! Rooms are small but comfortable. Breakfast was very good and the staff was super nice! Evelyn was fantastic in helping us plan our trip. There's even a Starbucks across the street if you long for an American coffee!

My wife and I had originally booked two nights but ended up staying for one. We were allocated room 23. Small and in need of a total refurb especially the bathroom. When I asked to change room I was advised that no rooms were available. Then another couple arrived and were allocated a room!! When I said I was not... More

Great location, was away from the hustle and bustle but near enough to walk to city center. The breakfast was delicious and the service was great. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable.

Seeing the sights of a city can be tiring but starting and ending the day at Waterloo House was wonderful. The breakfasts were excellent and the staff is attentive. They provided good information for our sightseeing and we hope to return.

Just returned from 5 nights in Dublin. Waterloo House was the perfect place to stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. Shared a room with my daughter and we each had a huge queen sized bed which was the comfiest I've ever slept in! The guest house was spotless with maid service every day. The breakfast was delicious - homemade... More
