What a beautiful townhouse the staff are amazing and the food is exceptional! I would return in a heartbeat! The grounds are lovely and the the area is snugged away in a quiet location. Perfect for a get away!

Room Tip: Do not book online better deals just walking in.

Myself and my Mum visited Athenaeum House Hotel for a nights stay as a birthday treat for my Mum. The staff were excellent throughout our stay and made my Mum feel extra special on her birthday. We dined in Zak's restaurant in the evening and again the staff were wonderful and the food was delicious. Breakfast the next morning was superb and the waiting staff were very attentive and were very friendly. I would highly recommend the hotel for that personal touch that is not in a lot of the bigger hotels :) thanks again Athenaeum House, we will be back.

Took a 3 night break away with my husband and our new baby for our first family stay-cation! Couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough! This hotel is just on the outskirts of the town and is only a 20 min walk in. We took the buggy I and out of the town everyday and enjoyed it immensely!
The staff were wonderful, the food was beautiful and our room (a suite was really so nice).
We had an absolutely fabulous breakaway and have to say what prompted me most to write this review was reading the negative ones- my advice : do not let the negative reviews sway you in any way! For us who are well used to holidaying in gorgeous places- this ticked all the boxes!
We will be back every time to stay here when visiting Waterford City!

Warning - don't trust your SATNAV; obtain local directions and look for the signs. The hotel is not in central Waterford.
We needed a last minute room in Waterford for a family of four, and this hotel was great! We booked two Executive Single rooms with breakfast. Each room easily fits 3 people. The extensive cook to order breakfast was well worth the value for a family of four (€30).
We inquired about local attractions; the dining room staff was extremely helpful and informative. Highly recommend.

Went to Zaks today to celebrate Mothers Day. Enjoyed a superb 3 course lunch. The wine we chose was not available, and the owner (Stan Power) helpfully suggested a White from a small Rhone Valley producer ( Marius), which was superb and cost less than the unavailable wine. Not often such things happen! The staff allowed my daughter to play a tune on the Grand Piano as a treat for her mum, given the day! We'll be back soon.

Enjoyed a delicious Mothers Day lunch with the family in Zacs restaurant. At short notice, we were accomodated without issue, served a delicious meal & provided with a delightful goody bag for mum to take home (scrumptious).

We stayed here for just one night but were very impressed by the whole hotel. Our room was reasonably luxurious, and very quiet. Wi-fi in the room was strong and reliable…always a plus. The food in the restaurant was of the highest quality and very reasonably priced. The hotel was a little hard to find as our hire car didn't have GPS but that is one of the interesting parts of a driving holiday!! We loved Waterford…a beautiful historic interesting city!
