From the moment we checked in on Fri with Yuaun we could not fault the wonderful customer service we received from every member of staff during our throughout stay & including the Wedding Celebrations. The setting is wonderful &...

Brought our extended family here today for our daughters confirmation dinner. Honestly can't fault it. Food absolutely wonderful and the staff couldn't be nicer. Were lucky enough to have a private room for the meal but would have gladly sat in the restaurant..... has a great atmosphere. Will be back again!

This hotel has the potential to be a nice little boutique hotel. Unfortunately our room let the place down for me on our visit. Our room was described as a 'suite' - this may be what they refer to all the rooms as. The bed was comprised of 2 mattresses, side by side, both of which were both well past...

The room was fine for the price I paid. However there was no menu or reading material in the room. The main issue I had with my stay was the restaurant. Unnecessarily expensive, to the point where I was expecting perfection. This was not the case. I had a three course meal. Starter was the chicken parfait which was nice...

We went to a wedding here last year. The grounds are beautiful. The food was lovely. Only complaint was the bar was under stacked and understaffed. Prices were way to high. Not far from Waterford city in short taxi ride.

Cheap and clean but the room we stayed in was run down, there were cracks in the ceilings and tiles in the bathroom looked like they were coming away. Its a cheap hotel which is good and the service was fine but the worst thing about it are the beds. They were very very uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep, I...

This is a lovely place for a Christmas Eve lunch as it goes on all day. This always is a line in the sand time as from this lunch on I relax into Christmas- all is done by then- meals are usually lovel, party atmosphere and no cooking for me😀

Well I have stayed here a good few time and now having a wedding breakfast-about 100 plus guests. To be honest it's too many for the hotel to cope the with. The bar is too small, not enough staff for service. The steak was over cooked as was the fish, the soup was bland and the vegetables nearing raw. If...

Ok, I shouldn't really be writing this review because now everyone will want to come and stay and my piece of heaven will be no more...... The Athenaeum Hotel.... AT THE NAY EE UM is one of Irelands hidden gems. It is family owned and it feels like home the moment you walk through the door. It has charm, elegance...
