After a long journey, it was so nice to be welcomed to my room by the staff of the Waterloo. My room was sunny, clean, and charming. Breakfasts were delicious. The staff was helpful. If I ever return to Dublin, I would not hesitate to rebook.

I stayed here on the recommendation of a very young friend, hoping that the place would be close enough to be able to visit the city comfortably and I would feel at home enough to be in a good mood to visit the city. And so it was. I was in no way disappointed. Staying at Waterloo House just added...

I use to stay in this lovely place in Dubline with some colleagues whenever I come to this city for working purposes. The house is tiny but clean and quiet. Rooms are Victorian style furnished in which you can enjoy a refreshing sleep, perhaps after a good tour in Temple Bar district ;). Breakfast is various and delicious, bread, bacon,...

Stayed at Waterloo House on an overnight stay due to business, a delightful charming place with helpful staff. Close to the town center, only 10 mins away and a lovely breakfast. Booking in was quick and easy with a card pass access system, this came in handy when arriving late back that night!

Coming back to visit family and friends in Dublin is always a treat for me. The best stay I always have is at Waterloohouse. Even though I haven’t a car and because Waterloohouse is situated at a great vantage point it’s really easy for me to get around Dublin. Evelyn and her team offer, at all times, a very kind...

This is a fine old Georgian house and you feel very comfortable in it. I had a large room that was plenty big enough for me, and it had an open fireplace in it, so very traditional look and feel. Everything that you need in a room was provided, the beds comfortable, heating, tea/coffee, etc, it's a nice stroll into...

We really enjoyed our stay in Waterloo House. It was off to a good start considering the owners accepted our booking with around 10 minutes notice after we walked out of our previous booking at a hotel accross the road after seeing the awful room. Waterloo House has a grand feel on approach and the inside didn't dissapoint. Had everything...

Stayed here for one night. Slightly impersonal check-in, but fine. Comfy bed and nice furniture. Bathroom a little outdated. There is limited parking on the grounds with lots of on street parking. It is paid parking from 8am. Didn't have breakfast. Located close to Aviva, Baggot St & embassy belt. Got a rate of €60 which was not bad.

Stayed in the hotel just for 2 nights. The room was quite small (It was a double room but I was travelling alone!) but clean and with a really nice view. Decided to add the breakfast and you definitely have to try the Waffle with Maple syrup (!). The location is definitely the best part.... 10 minutes from Merrion Square...

Stayed four nights in this lovely, well-located guesthouse. My first room, which was in the back of the building (as I'd requested quiet), was quite warm during some unusually hot summer days. (The sun would shine in, I believe, and add heat - no AC.) After one night they were kind enough to move me to a front room which,...
