The positives first. We were two couples on a one night stay. The front of House staff were excellent. Courteous and helpful, professional and friendly, exactly what I would expect at a four star hotel. Our evening meal was exceptional, the highlight of our stay, and reasonable in price. I would return for the dining experience. Highly recommended. However... the... More

The hotel was a great restaurant, and a very nice place to walk. Excellent grounds. The rooms were nicely decorated. But the bed was just terrible. Bumpy and old. Woke up in the morning with a very sore back.

Just returned from staying at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel has such a lovely homely feeling, the staff are so friendly and helpful. The food was great, BUT I dreaded going back to my room!! Dirty, tired and my bed smelt!! The hotel lobby, restaurant and drawing room were very clean, so if they could make the rooms... More

We stayed at the hotel for just one night but the service was exceptional. The room was spacious and seemed new. The food at the restaurant was delicious (albeit pricy, but worth it). They have a big lawn in the back for kids to run around.... and the building itself was charming. The only fault is no AC. Even with... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel situated on the other side of the river to Waterford city centre. You feel out in the country yet are just 10 mins drive away from the city centre. The public areas are beautifully kept and the staff are professional and friendly. The rooms are large and at the rear look out onto well... More

Before we were married and left for our honeymoon in Ireland, we started the process of refinancing our mortgage in Colorado. The re-fi process started to fall apart one quiet afternoon in Waterford while we were at the Athenaeum Hotel. In the middle of a wedding going in their beautiful backyard, the staff were so very helpful in printing emails,... More

We had travelled from Cork and arrived early afternoon at the hotel. We were able to check in, unload our bags and after a relaxing lunch take off to explore Waterford. Although the Hotel is on other side of river to main town it is an ideal location. Very quiet, onsite parking set amongst bushland setting with views of city... More

After a long day of driving, we arrived at the Athenaeum House Hotel and truly enjoyed our stay. We loved the out of the way location, the warmth of the staff and the amazing dinner that night. We also enjoyed a bit of patio time before dinner. We would highly recommend and would definitely go back!

We had a 2 night mid week stay here on a bargain break that was really excellent value. Having arrived early( the motorway really speeds up the journey) we were able check in early and therefore had the whole long afternoon to spend sightseeing. Hotel is 25 min walk from centre so we took car and found parking readily available.... More
