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!

Lovely stay at the Waterloo Guesthouse! Staff were very friendly and helpful - as we found all over Ireland :-) Beautiful room, delicious breakfast in the glass conservatory and an easy walk into the hubbub of central Dublin. In a nice quiet neighborhood, and with parking right out front. Highly recommend!

I stayed at the Waterloo house for 3 nights in March 2015. I have to say that it has been a perfect and lovely stay from the beginning to the end. The owner has been lovely, very helpful and has a lot of great addresses to give you for whatever you're looking for in Dublin. The place is great, quiet,... More

I've stayed at Waterloo House two times now, and I love its convenient location. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. Evelyn does a great job welcoming guests and is very attentive at breakfast, which is held in a sunlit room overlooking the residential area backyard. Waterloo House is incredibly convenient to public transportation and local restaurants and pubs. We'll... More

A 3 night stay at Waterloo House on our first trip to Dublin was a great choice, and was based on some other excellent Trip Advisor reviews, which we can now echo. The location is ideal being in walking distance of pubs, restaurants and the city centre, the off-road parking was a key feature for us having brought our car... More

My lady and I took my then 96 year old father-in-law on a tour of Ireland in September, 2014. Our last three nights before returning home were spent at Waterloo House in Dublin. We had booked the property from home, as it is best not to leave things to chance when traveling with an elderly companion. It was Evelyn's caring... More

Stayed here for one night for my Christmas party. Location just off baggot street made it ideal for town. Room was spacious and quiet and the hotel had free parking which is a real rarity that close to the city centre. Had a bit of drama the next morning with a missing set of car keys which the staff could... More
