My husband and I recently stayed for two nights at Waterloo House. The accommodation was good, although our room and bed were smaller than expected. For a more comfortable night's sleep, I would suggest requesting a queen sized bed and not taking for granted the double would be of that size. Apart from that, the morning breakfast was delicious, featuring...

This hotel is a large apartment-like building with a small parking lot in front. Reception is inside a large door in a small office. The room we had (for two) was rather small and old, and the bathroom could have used some updating (the water temperature kept changing during a shower). The breakfast room was very night, a sunroom, and...

Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Comfy beds. What more could you want?? This hotel is situated in a quiet area around 20 minutes walk from the city centre. Breakfast is served in a sunny conservatory overlooking the small garden which is really pleasant. Rooms fairly spacious and huge king size bed was very comfy. Restaurants within safe walking distance. Visit Searsons...

A classic B&B, comfortable attractive room overlooking a garden. Helpful staff. Proprietor went out of her way to check on me after a run in with Dublin parking cops. Close to the city center. Highly recommend

I spent 2 nights at the Waterloo House. It is a pleasant walk to the city center but there are bus lines and taxi's within a short distance if you don't want to walk. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. When I arrived back after touring the first night nobody saw me...

nice staff, gave us great directions and suggestions for our visit to Dublin. The rooms are nice and clean. Very good wifi connection. There are buses connecting to the center nearby and even the walinkg is not very long. Some good pubs and restaurants nearby. There is a good connection to the airport 5 minutes walking.

We arrived early and were greated by Evelyn who offered us breakfast downstairs and then a suggested itinerary for the time while our room was prepared. Throughout the stay she and the staff made every effort to see that we had everything we needed and offered helpful suggestions for our Dublin visit. The area where The Waterloo House is locaded...

We selected Waterloo House for several reasons: We enjoy guest houses; breakfast included; convenient location. We were not disappointed. Our room was comfortable, and since we would be touring most of the day, it was ideal. The breakfast dishes available were varied and tasty, and the dining room was bright and cheery. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to...

Overall our stay here was great. To start with, the staff went above and beyond. They were friendly, they bought my parents tea in the lounge while they read listening to classical music. They helped with directions, recommended great food, booked taxis etc. Generally breakfast was great, there was wonderful fresh cut fruit, and the waffles were homemade and wonderful....

If you wish to stay in an upmarket B&B in Dublin City, Waterloo House is a good choice. I stayed on the first floor in a room facing onto the road - I usually request a 'quiet' room but the room was book by a colleague & I was woken up by the traffic noise before 7 am despite it...
