A nice place for first night in Ireland. The only negative was a bit of neglected maintenance but it was small stuff. Staff were great. I can't say what is around the hotel, but the location was just what we needed for recovering from jet lag.

The hotel is very nice, room large and comfortable and lots of hot water. It is a little distant from the centre of Waterford but as we only stayed one night this was not a problem. It is situated in a very picturesque area with lovely gardens. We had travelled from Bristol that day and were very tired so decided... More

Our stay at Athenaeum was very memorable. The rooms are decorated to a high standard and beds comfortable. I loved the fact that the extension was built in keeping with the style of the old house. Maria at reception is friendly helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant and bar area is lovely overlooking the garden. The food is amazing... High compliments... More

Attended a wedding and it was a lovely setting. Room was very clean and nice. Staff were excellent and very polite and helpful. Drink however was shocking and very expensive. Lager was very poor and Guiness even though it looked great was filled poorly

This hotel ( although slightly difficult to find) has a lovely location close to the city centre. Entrance foyer and bar are comfortable and pleasantly decorated. The staff are efficient and super friendly. Food is very good and ambience in the restaurant is also very good. When we stayed there our bedroom was on a lower ground floor and rather... More

Athenaeum House is a gorgeous hotel tucked away in the woods. I am guessing it used to be an old manor house converted into a hotel but it works as the room was quite large. It was very clean and extremely quiet. Because it is in the woods it is NOT walkable to the Waterford downtown. We did not have... More

I was not impressed at all with the bedroom, tiny TV screen on the wall and room generally tired looking. Given that this is a four star hotel, I expected the bedroom to be better that this. Can't fault the food no service though which were excellent.
