The 1843 bar offers locally sourced food and drink for you to savour before exploring the wonderful city.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

County Longford, Ireland6 contributions7 helpful votes
Recently we spent three nights in the Marina Hotel in Waterford. In this wonderful hotel the all - round service was excellent, all the the staff were always friendly and welcoming and the cuisine was top class. The hotel was spotlessly clean, the rooms were ideal - sized and comfortable and its location very central. It is close to many wonderful amenities, including a series of magnificent and informative museums,Waterford Crystal Glass factory and the legendary Theatre Royal. A "Must" visit for anyone who loves a brilliant break in a superb hotel. Olive and Seamus, Longford

This is a lovely hotel right on the marina. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our breakfast the next morning. It’s within walking distance to the Waterford Crystal Factory and restaurants.

We just spent a 3 night stay in this excellent well located hotel. Clean room with very comfortable bed and wonderful rain shower. Best asset was their staff. Everyone we met was so friendly in particular the restaurant staff where we had dinner each night. The food was that good. Steak cooked to perfection each time and my wife loved the haloumi burger. Breakfast was also superb and a call out to Liam who was so welcoming each morning. Will definitely book again.

Marina is a fantastic hotel to stay at! Exceptional rooms, clean, tidy and all necessities available. The location is perfect, close to local bars but far enough away to be quiet. The marina staff are all fantastic. I was served by Molly who poured the perfect pint of Guinness. She was very friendly and made sure my glass was never empty! Thank you Molly!

Just back from a weekend trip to the Marina Hotel. The hotel has had a fabulous makeover since last time I was there. The colour palate is very calming and relaxing. The rooms were fantastic, brilliant shower. However the Marinas main asset is undoubtedly its staff. The girls at reception were very welcoming. Bernadette in the bar represents what real customer service is all about she is so friendly, so eager to highlight waterfords main attractions a true asset to the hotel. Michael the manager on duty made sure we were looked after and indeed spoke with all the guests in the bar which was very nice to see. The only downside to our trip was the awful weather but due to the torrential rain we ate in the bar both nights. The food was fantastic. One of our group is vegan and the vegan option was superb as was all the options we sampled on the menu. Breakfast each morning was superb and a really good selection. Overall superb experience and would highly recommend this hotel.

The Marina Hotel has undergone renovation. The duty managers are exceptional and all the staff treat all guests with great kindness. The view from the room was literally just above the water and a joy to wake up to . Recommend the Marina for any visitor looking to see the major sights of Waterford.
