From our arrival to our departure nothing was too much trouble. We were welcomed with coffee and cake as well as lots of interesting information about the house, Wexford and good places o eat / visit. Antoinette's passion for her home shone through without being boring. The house is filled with a whole collection of fascinating artifacts; each time we... More

We stayed one night at the Sion Hill House B&b. It was a great stay. We were in the Thomas Francis Meagher Suite - so quiet! The full Irish breakfast was the best - everything you would want. Antoinette & her husband George were nice. Place had plenty of parking.

This place was as close as it gets to staying in a castle. The dining room alone has such intriguing pieces like the Venetian Chandelier. JFK memorabilia (George is a Kennedy – royalty to an Irish Catholic Boston girl like me), Artwork and beautiful china. I felt so underdressed at breakfast like I should have been in fancy pajamas with... More

The folks at the local museum booked us here and an excellent choice. Antoinette was a great host. Checked in about 5:30, and she made us some tea and sweets. Talked with her about the area and she told us about some unmarked treasures on our planned trip. Rooms are OK size and house overlooks city on opposite side of... More

We found this on the internet and it looked special. We saved this for our last stay in Ireland and it was fantastic! Best spot for viewing the historic waterfront in Waterford. Tucked away but perfectly placed. The welcome was excellent and the hosts George and Antoinette were lovely. We stayed for two nights and wished we had booked in... More

Really welcoming stately home with gardens and peace abounding. Hospitality second to none with the loveliest of hosts, Antoinette and George. The room was regal and spacious with a decent ensuite. The breakfast was hearty with excellent alternatives to the grilled offering for us carnivoures! Thanks for the wonderful few days in Waterford.

Sion Hill House is an oasis of beauty two minutes from downtown Waterford by car. The hosts George and Antoinette could not have been nicer, and were helpful in every regard. The gardens are lovely and the property is steeped in 2000 years of history. The rooms are peaceful and well-appointed, with the nights as quiet as can be. We... More

My wife and I had intended to stay along the waterfront in town in one of the hotels we'd found recommended in a guide book. Looking for a place to park was somewhat daunting and we wound up crossing over the river. Before making a second attempt in town we saw the sign for Sion Hill House B&B....how fortuitous! Going...

We stayed there in March 2013. There is only one word for the location of this B'n'B: amazing! The view over Waterford city by day is only outdone by its view by night! Once you've entered the house you can literally feel its history and all the memories connected with this place. (The owner will gladly tell you all about... More
