I found this place last week when looking for an alternative to city centre hotels. It's a very comfortable guesthouse with friendly staff. The location is excellent as it's within walking distance of many of the city centre attractions. My wife and I stayed in Room 22 which is a lovely, spacious room overlooking the street with one of the...

We stayed there two nights and we very happy with the room, the staff, and especially the breakfast room. It is glassed in and overlooks the garden. The breakfasts are cooked to order and quite good. We could walk to the local pubs and restaurants quite easily from there.

Waterloo House was a very nice place to stay, handy to many restaurants and bus stop very close by. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. Room was a little small, but comfortable and clean. Maybe a bit overpriced.

Have to take off a star for the breakfast and room was so hot. I had the Irish Breakfast once and the egg was so over cooked the yolk was in chunks. The sausage, meat and black/white pudding were dry yet greasy. I went to my room and promptly vomited. Location is good a nice walk to St Stephen's Green.

Good clean hotel in a good location, with friendly staff.....but over priced @ 179 per night for what you get, the rooms are small with squeaky floor boards and it's more like a nice B&B than a 4 star Hotel.

I stayed at Waterloo House for 4 nights, and would happily stay there the next time I'm in Dublin. It's a 2-minute walk to the restaurants, cafes and amenities of Baggott Street, and about 15-20 minutes from St Stephen's Green and Grafton Street. There's also a bus stop right outside and taxis are easy to come by. The staff was...

We stayed two nights at the start or our vacation and then two nights again at the end. The first two nights were excellent. Large room, comfortable bed. The breakfast is excellent with a nice choice on the buffet and a large selection to order from the kitchen. There are restaurants very close by and parking. It's a little bit...

This was a great place to stay at the beginning of our Ireland trip. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast amazing! We enjoy walking and so didn't mind the walk to get into city center and the sights. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We returned to Dublin after about two weeks of touring around IReland and...

The location of this lodging is pretty good - it's maybe 15-20 minutes to walk to downtown. There's great restaurants right at the end of the block on Baggott street. Our room was large and comfortable. The staff were a bit peculiar - there was an ongoing noise from the heating system (loud enough that you couldn't hear the TV...

Waterloo House is in the Georgian section of Dublin where you are close to mass transit options or a short walk to St. Stephen's Green but far enough from the city to enjoy quiet solitude. We enjoyed the sitting room and the rooms were not large but comfortable. The breakfast and the sunny dining room were marvelous. The staff were...
