“Stayed for six nites December 2016”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2016

Location of hotel is excellent. Rooms are very small, little shabby. Rest of home is nice, well maintained. Breakfasts are good. Has elevator. Dublin is fabulous place to visit and this B&B is well positioned.

Room Tip: Higher levels better

We loved staying our 2 nights here.
What was once 2 beautiful Georgian homes is now enjoyed by many a lucky traveller.
This place exudes charm and elegance.
Our room was massive with beautiful artwork, stunning original fireplace and a most comfy bed complete with wooden headboard and matching wardrobe. We had a bath to relax in after our somewhat wet walk through the rainy streets of Dublin.
The shared lounge room also with its original fireplace had large comfortable chairs and was very cosy to curl up in and read the newspapers provided.
You are only a minutes walk from lots of restaurants and pubs so there is always something new to try.
We willing definitely stay here again.

We had to do some research at UCD & this lovely B&B proved ideal. We caught the 39A bus just down the street, which took us direct to the campus in a matter of minutes (stopping in Starbucks for a quick coffee on the run first). The Waterloo House is situated in a very nice, quiet, tree-lined neighborhood not far from the embassies and Grafton Street, etc., that has everything you need within walking distance-- groceries, pharmacy, wine shop, nice restaurants and Searson's pub (don't miss Sunday jazz with saxophonist from the Commitments). The Waterloo House breakfast is legendary but our hectic schedule made it a luxury we only indulged in once--and then very, very good! Staff so very nice. We will definitely stay again when returning in the fall. Simply charming and untacky place to stay in Dublin far 'from the madding crowd.'

Waterloo House was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of a larger hotel.
Our room was warm and comfortable. The bed and pillows were first class.
The place was spotless and the breakfast delicious.
Convenient location within walking distance of town/RDS.
Parking was a bit of a mission but this was due to an inconsiderate parker who refused to move his car.

I was staying at the Waterloo for one night with a colleague. The room was small but pleasant clean and had a shower which I prefer. Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast. From a businessman view a great change from my normal corporate hostelry.

I'd go back. Good choice of eatery's at the bottom of the road.
