I spend about 100 bed nights in hotels / guest houses each year and the following five things are fierce important to me.
Waterloo House scores top marks in each of the above five.
It's at the heart of Dublins business, sporting and social life. There are excellent hotels within a stones throw to meet clients and conduct meetings. Searsons, The Waterloo, Toner's and Doheny and Nesbitts are four of Ireland's iconic pubs and all are within walking distance and provide great comfort, succour and respite to weary and lonely travellers. Google Maps told me that Roly's Bistro is a 14 minute walk away. I covered it easily in 10. Wonderful meal.
Evelyn Corcoran is a fine Westport lady and is full of warmth, information and personality.
The hotel is a beautiful house overlooking Waterloo Road to the front and a wonderfully secluded conservatory adorns the back. Evelyn tells me to listen to the blinds singing (even in December) and to watch out for a friendly fox that occasionally dancers around the garden.
Dublin, like most cities globally is a nightmare for parking. Waterloo House has ample parking. I arrived late last evening and had no problem parking in front of the hotel.
You'd imagine that most Hotel breakfasts are the same, and unfortunately they are. This is altogether different. Freshly squeezed orange juice; granola; a real Irish fry with tasty thick rashers, succulent sausages and chives in the scrambled eggs.
