Stayed here late November for a few days with my family. One of the airport buses conveniently stops just up the road. Buses to the city centre stops just outside but we never used them as it's not too far to walk. It's also an interesting walk with Patrick Kavanagh's Pembroke Road at the end of Waterloo Road, several well... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in November. The hotel is very well located: close to the city centre, and easily reachable from Dublin airport by airport express bus. Staff were very friendly and helpful, room was nice and clean, and breakfasts were also very good.

Stayed at Waterloo Lodge in August. Airport bus drop off is a very short walk to Lodge. Location is in a quiet section of Dublin, just off Lower Baggot Street. There are pubs, other restaurants, grocery stores, etc within a 5 minute walk from the Lodge. Bus stop at the front door, walk to DART train, "downtown" is about a... More

Staff were quite friendly, property clean and quaintly laid out. It is two converted town-houses, with stairs up to the front level entrance. Once in, you find there is actually an elevator. Room was very small and toilet with shower adequate. Free parking (did not have a car) and Wi-Fi. Good breakfast in ground floor garden/atrium. Directions for getting there... More

Waterloo Lodge is located in a good area (many embassies nearby!) with grocery stores and restaurants also nearby. The room was fine and the Irish breakfasts excellent. Public bus stop is just outside the front door to take you into the center of Dublin. This is extremely useful as driving and parking a car in Dublin is difficult to say... More

I stayed there for a conference. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are reasonably spacious, staff is friendly. The location is great, quiet, but within easy walking distance to the center and only a couple of hundred metres from where my conference was. I would recommend this to anybody wanting to visit Dublin, particularly since the price is really... More

Good accommodation only a twenty minute walk from temple bar. Lots to see on the way in. And easy to find your way home. Good choice for breakfast, reception very helpful. Rooms a good size, nice and quiet with ensuite. Parking out the front but you pay extra for this. Free wifi. Would stay here again.

Town house bed and breakfast. Very clean and comfortable. This is a quiet area away from the hubbub of central Dublin but we found everything was within relatively easy walking distance. There is a busy stop right outside if required. The coach from the airport brings you to within five minutes walk. Bars and restaurants at the end of the... More
