I would not call this a bed and breakfast exactly, though that is what you get. The house is a little ways out of Waterford. But not to far for a taxi if you fancy a drink. The house has a large extension which houses the bedrooms, they are very large and are of a hotel standard. It has its... More

Samuel's Heritage was our first B&B we stayed in Ireland. Susan was very welcoming and friendly. Our room was very large, light and comfortable. Nice bathroom with a tub! She was nice enough to run us down to the local pub, Jack Meades. We had a great time talking with some of the locals while sharing a pint. We then... More

My husband and I just married in Ireland on June 3,we and our families then traveled to Waterford and stayed with Susan, for our second time. This B&B was just as wonderful as the first. Rooms and bathrooms are updated and very clean. Susan prepares a wonderful fresh breakfast each morning and always has a smile and great recommendations for... More

I'm not sure I get all the overly enthusiastic reviews, but people's tastes do vary. The name is a little misleading. There is nothing "heritage" about the place. The six guest rooms are in a new building all along one hall, three on each side of the hall. The rooms are well appointed, modern, and all pretty much the same,... More

Colin C we thank you for taking time to so very extensively review Samuel’s Heritage. Let me first of all explain the origin of the name: My father was Samuel and tragically died in a farming accident before I was born - so the land on which our property is set as well as me are the heritage – not...

Susan greeted us warmly and was very helpful with information about where to go. Although the accommodations were more like a hotel than a B&B, they were roomy and comfortable. The separate entrance was nice and the view was lovely. I would definitely recommend Samuel's Heritage to anyone looking for a place to stay in Waterford.

Susan and Des were terrific. Susan has more energy than anyone else I have ever met. The rooms were spacious, clean and more than enough for us. We stayed 1 night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Get the steel cut porridge with breakfast- best I have ever had. I compared multiple reviews and B&B's in the area and Samuel's was by... More

This was the first B&B we stayed at on our trip and out of the 5 or 6 others we stayed at it was a step above the rest. The hostess was able to provide a great restaurant recommendation and was also extremely friendly and personable. We very much so enjoyed our stay here and wish we could have stayed... More

As has been documented here by many, Susan and Des bring new meaning to the term Host. Through experience, they have developed their guest experience to leave nothing wanting. Their location is, indeed, stunning and offers a panoramic view of Waterford below. A total surprise was the workout room and sauna! Yes, in a B&B! Furthermore, the rooms are at... More

Susan and Des are wonderful hosts and made our brief stay in Waterford all the more relaxing and enjoyable. The food was wonderful and the rooms both comfortable and generous in size. While it is perhaps a little far for a leisurely stroll into the centre of Waterford, it is a very short drive and well worth venturing out of... More
