We spent six nights towards the end of September and did not have one complaint. The Inn has a lift (which was much appreciated after having the stair and luggage experience in other inns). The room, while compact, was clean and offered tea/coffee making amenities. The bathroom was large and hot water plentiful. There were several breakfast options (we tried... More

In Waterloo House I was in a nice, quiet room with great staf and delicious breakfasts and just 20 min walking from city center! It's definitely a place to stay if you're looking for peace, quiet and comfort near the city center! Ana

... to make it short: a wonderful place to stay. I spent two weeks in the Waterloo House and felt like home all the time. I can really recommend this guesthouse -- five points!

We stayed at Waterloo for 4 nights on a vacation and it was a short distance to most sites. Bus stop was across street if we were tired of the walk. Our room was small, but with a comfortable bed and nice view from our window. Breakfast was very nice and relaxing in conservatory. Abbi was especially helpful in finding... More

I stayed at the Waterloo for 2 weeks at the beginning of November 2009. The best thing about the place would be definitely the people who work in it. They are very nice and kind, will always answer your questions and help you with anything. This is not uncommon in Dublin, though. In Dublin people is very, very nice! The... More

This place is an utter delight - the rooms are large as are very the comfortable beds. If I had to find a criticism - not easy - I suppose I would say that (as so often is the case) the bedside lighting is not great. Above all, my memory is of a wonderful team of the most delightful, charming,... More

We had hoped to be in Dublin and Newgrange last week. But unfortunately, the flight to Dublin was cancelled (and our yearly holiday in Ireland was away too) . I really want to thank Waterloo House for their understanding. Due to our cancellation, they had less income, and nevertheless we didn't have to pay a penalty fee or something. In... More

Our stay at the Waterloo House was perfect. The owner and all the staff were so friendly and helped us with everything. The rooms were very nice and especially breakfast was superb. The Waterloo House feels like home!
