Arrived in just enough time to check in and then settle down in the bar to watch Irelands bruising encounter with France in the 6 nations! Think I watched nearly every game of the tournament in the same bar in Dublin the previous year without receiving diddly-squat. (barely even a smile) however here I was just in the door and... More

Stayed and extra night because of the location. Right up the street from down town. Good breakfast. Great service. Room was cozy and walls a bit thin, but enjoyed the value:) Older building updated and charming.

Went for a lunch for 4 in the Barley Field on Valentine's Day, which I had originally won before Christmas. Have to say, it was a lovely experience. The food, lasagne & chips were devine. Can't fault a thing. Can't fault the two staff behind the counter - really friendly. Great atmosphere in the pub, real homely. Highly recommended.

Breakfast included in overnight stay. Very good location, rooms were clean and tidy with tea making facilities. Above a bar so I was initially worried there would be a lot of noise but this was not the case because I had a really good nights sleep.

I had reserved the Barley Field without really knowing much about Waterford. Had I known more I might have tried for a place closer to the waterfront, but I didn't. It's a nice place, the staff was very friendly, though the directions I received down to the waterfront were a bit confusing. I was there on a Sunday so the... More

This small hotel is located above the adjoining bar. Good value for money, lovely and helpful staff, free parking. The room was basic, and slightly loud as they had live music in the bar next door, but we were warned of this. Close to town centre.

Satisfactory B&B in Waterford; nothing special, but good value for money; includes a bar, which is a bonus; we were there for the Waterford Festival - early booking needed! Quite close to the city centre (~15m walk), but still reasonably quiet area

I'm a Canadian writer who came to Waterford for my brothers wedding. After a week at two different hotels on the Quay, I needed somewhere a bit more comfortable and with a certain "je ne sais quoi" to sit tight and work (for almost 30days) afterward. After looking all over to find the perfect hotel, when I met Keith the... More

My husband, myself and a friend arrived at The Barley Field very tired after a night of travelling but we we're greeted by the lovely Claire who told us that one of our rooms was ready so we could deposit our bags, freshen up and return to the breakfast room for much needed tea and coffees! Our rooms were everything... More

When my wife and I found ourselves forced to stay at the Barley Field, neither of us had high expectations. However, much to our delight, we were wrong. The room was quiet and comfortable, and well stocked with all of the essential hotel treats. The bed was comfortable, and the water hot. More significant than this was the warmth, courtesy,... More
