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...

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...

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...

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...

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

We used the Aircoach from Dublin Airport and the drop off point is 10 minutes walk from the Lodge. We were warmly welcomed and taken to our room (109) which was well appointed, clean & tidy. We had taken the bed & breakfast offer and we were delighted with the quality of breakfast each morning (3). The cooked breakfast was...

We stayed in a family room for one night whilst visiting my son- for the price we paid the room was clean and comfortable and the staff were wonderful. Breakfast was served very efficiently with choice of continental or full Irish. A good basic B & B. Many Thanks.

Stayed here for 3 days in September and it was great. Was a bit nervous about booking as the reviews regarding staff attitude were a bit worrying but these doubts were soon thrown out the window. On arrival we were allowed to check in early, the receptionist was very helpful and gave us all the details we needed to get...
