I came over here while tagging along with my other half who needed to be here for a conference. We were after a hotel that was equidistant to his conference (UCD) and the city centre and this one fit the bill. Everything about our stay was fantastic. The rooms are on the small side but plenty big enough considering we... More

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend. We were looking for somewhere quiet and comfortable to stay the day after a big night out. The staff here were welcoming, helpful and friendly. We were given a third floor room which was extremely quiet allowing us to have the nights sleep we needed. Our room and bathroom was warm and... More

We stayed at Waterloo Lodge in December and again this month, January. I can find no fault with it. It is in a quiet area just outside the centre of Dublin. It is a short walk from the centre of Dublin or frequent buses stop close by. The airport bus passes the end of the road? The staff are so... More

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
