We booked a triple room which was ideal. The lodge is located to the south of the city but within walking distance along Baggot Street. There are many nice eateries nearby which cater for all types of healthy and good food options. The three of us had a fantastic weekend meeting up with other friends. Definitely recommend this B andB...

This place is not your typical b&b as there is no local host offering hospitality. It is efficiently run by a team of young friendly women from Eastern Europe and is clean, has a good breakfast and was a good value. It was on a nice street in a nice neighborhood with good restaurants, but we ended up taking taxis...

Stayed one night here back in December, when I was struggling to find a hotel at a decent price for a work night out. I was definitely not disappointed. Arrived early that afternoon and the girl at reception was extremely pleasant, very helpful with information regarding facilities and the local area. I had asked for a quiet room, a request...

Staying just one night with a business colleague, found Waterloo Lodge to be comfortable and good value - and ten minutes walk from the AirCoach which saved us a hefty taxi fare! Initially put off by steep and uneven steps up to the front door and then by their lift being out of order but friendly receptionist quickly settled us...

+: Very clean, location between UCD and city centre in a very nice neighbourhood of Dublin, friendly staff, bus stop outside of the hotel -: Rooms are somehow small but the bed is good, building looks old inside (well for some other people this could be a plus!), rooms are a little noisy In my opinion if you see it...

We made the error of thinking we were booked into the Waterloo House. Be aware these are two different businesses located within meters of each other. The hotel and room are very dated and worn. The rooms were in need of updates at least 10 years ago. The room was clean but the drab, worn appearance distracted from the cleanliness....

I'm not one to write reviews, particularly poor ones but as we had booked on the basis of the 5 star reviews on tripadvisor I feel it only appropriate to add a note of caution. Essentially there is nothing the matter with the hotel that a decent decorator and plumber couldn't put right. The whole place is faded and tired...

I recently had to travel to Dublin for business. My work concluded on a Friday and I had decided to stay in Dublin for the weekend. I had booked the Waterloo Lodge based on a reference from a local source. The Hotel is easy to find, in a good location and the staff is really good with helping out. They...

We stayed for three nights. It was quite comfortable and functional, as we were really only in our room to sleep. We like to walk, and it only took about 15–20 minutes to reach any of our local Dublin destinations (including travel pick-ups). Staff is very courteous. Would stay again.
