I'm not one to write reviews, particularly poor ones but as we had booked on the basis of the 5 star reviews on tripadvisor I feel it only appropriate to add a note of caution. Essentially there is nothing the matter with the hotel that a decent decorator and plumber couldn't put right. The whole place is faded and tired... More

I recently had to travel to Dublin for business. My work concluded on a Friday and I had decided to stay in Dublin for the weekend. I had booked the Waterloo Lodge based on a reference from a local source. The Hotel is easy to find, in a good location and the staff is really good with helping out. They... More

We stayed for three nights. It was quite comfortable and functional, as we were really only in our room to sleep. We like to walk, and it only took about 15–20 minutes to reach any of our local Dublin destinations (including travel pick-ups). Staff is very courteous. Would stay again.

I am so glad that we chose to stay in Balls Bridge. The neighborhood is so pleasant and the restaurants so nice that we chose to return from the city for dinners. It is an easy walk into town Center. Our room was located on the lower level, but still daylight. It was huge! We had an extra large king... More

We spent 4 nights there. The staff are helpful but there are no resident staff overnight. The Irish breakfasts are very good, being well cooked and hot. I am not sure about it catering for people with physical difficulties as the lift, in essence a service lift, was out of order and there are a number of steps up to... More

As to me it is a good place to a short stay without lunch and dinner. Although the hotel is not for disabled, so as stairs are quite steep and there is no lift. It was quite cold to me in June, when I visited, so as I was not able to shut down the window tightly, because of its... More

We stayed one night at the Waterloo - four of us fit comfortably in the room. It was well equipped, maybe a little too warm, but we were able to open a couple of the windows and cooled down comfortably. The price was very reasonable, especially considering it included parking and breakfast. The hotel is located in a nice part... More

Perfect location if you want to stay close to the centre but not right in the middle. Clean room and pleasant staff, very convenient. A nice stroll down to the centre in around 10 minutes. Worth considering.

We stayed here to go to a rugby match at the RDS. It is perfectly located within easy walking distance- and a short stroll from Searsons bar too. Good sized room, clean and spacious and a reasonably sized shower room too. The full Irish breakfast is lovely and sets you up for the day. We would go back very happily
