This moring we toured the Waterford Crystal factory and saw how they made Waterford Chrystal. Just like everywere else, once to tour ended you entered a gift shop, but unlike other gift shops, most of the items were very expensive.

This morning as we were getting ready to go down to breakfast the fire alarm went off (Of course it was a false alarm) but I wanted you to know that Robby, Katherine, Kimi, Laura and Libby all came out of the hotel with their instruments!! Jacob brought his bow down too! I was very proud of them! Robby was …

The final event to shape Ireland of course was then separation of the north and south and then the independence of the south to form the Republic ...

... window. One plus is that I'm on the bottom bunk and with being near the window I'll never over heat. Also I have wifi in my room since I am so close to the lobby! Woot woot! It's the small things.

Anyways I got up around 7AM and got ready. I had the free breakfast the hostel provides and even met up with Kyrie (one of the Americans just as she was leaving) and then headed to the bus for 8AM. Today I went out to the Dunmore caves near the city of ...

Having run the gauntlet of anti-motorhome car parks ( ie those with height barriers) we eventually found a brand new one behind the visitors' centre-€5 for 5 hours! We had a 50 minute tour of the centre and we were shown the different stages in the production of ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Tower Hotel Waterford

    Very, very pleasantly surprised by the Tower in Waterford

    from

    We have just returned from a really relaxing, enjoyable short stay with the Tower Hotel in Waterford. Contrary to many of the reviews we found the hotel spotlessly clean and the staff remarkably friendly. I am very fussy to be honest but was delighted with the standard in the hotel. The room was newly renovated and everything was perfect. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Wouldn't stay there again

    from

    My husband and I were on a two week trip to Ireland and while we hadn't really booked many places in advance, we didn't really have any problems finding hotels. I think there was a reason we didn't have any problems getting a room at the Tower. Our room overlooked the main street and while the view was nice the noise was not. We didn't sleep at all between the buses and the people walking by and coming home after being out at the bars all night. Keep in mind we were on the 4th floor and were still able to hear all the street noise.

    I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone and I definitely wouldn't stay there again.

    Fantastic service and friendly staff

    from

    Stayed in the Tower over the bank holiday weekend with the 'Spraoi' festival on. We had a ball - lovely room - great food - friendly & helpful staff. Waterford has changed since I was last here and I would definetely go back. The Hotel was great with a lovely atmosphere - only negative thing was the carpark was full - but it is the city centre - you can't have everything.

    I will be back

    Our WORST hotel in Ireland

    from

    I was part of a GLOBUS tour group travelling on a 2 week trip through the Republic and Northern Ireland. I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of most of the hotels used in my bus tour, but this one hotel stood out as being sub par with every other hotel we stayed in. The rooms are frequently small, musty, and the bedspreads look like they're from the '80's. Furniture was old and tired as was the carpet, draperies etc. The rooms themselves are laid out in a 'rabbit warren' pattern making finding rooms a bit of a treasure hunt. Noise from the corridors and other rooms invades your own room on a regular basis. The hotel looks very nice from the outside, but don't be fooled - both the hotel and the Town of Waterford are shabby compared to most other towns and hotels that we saw on a rather extensive trip. At least the breakfast and dinner served in the 'Carvery' were reasonably good. We ate there simply because the meals were included in the tour.

    There are better hotels in Waterford, but better still stay in a more picturesque town than Waterford.

    Read previous reviews. Did we stay in the same hotel?

    from

    We stayed one night in the Tower Hotel in Waterford during a whirlwind tour of Ireland in mid-January. We really liked the room, the service, and the breakfast and dinner we enjoyed in the hotel. Our only somewhat negative comment was the odd lack of washcloths in Ireland. BYO. We walked out at night to TH Doolan's Pub to have a pint or two and listen to traditional Irish music. We REALLY appreciated the "no smoking in the pub" laws! I was just sorry we couldn't stay a bit longer in Waterford.

    Towering Inferno

    from

    Stayed in this hotel a year ago and tried to erase the experience from my memory but the old wound was opened when a friend suggested going there for a weekend with her boyfriend. I said to her the same thing as I'm saying to all of you- AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Unless of course you want a room with condensation on the wallpaper and broken heating and a bedsheet with stains on it (YUCK). It truly is a miserable place. If you want to stay in Waterford, take my advice- book another hotel or sleep in your car.

    Great Staff - Great Food

    from

    Stayed in the Tower In March 04, we had a great time. Do not normally holiday at home but will definetely return to the Tower. Staff were very friendly and the Bistro was fantastic. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Thank you

    Great port on a stormy night

    from

Pity we ever had to leave and go to the Ard Ri it was the ruin of a lovely weekend when we enterd the loby my heart fell into my bootsThe Tower redeemed Waterford I will go back there

    Terrible hole in the wall

    from

    This was a total disappointment. The rooms were small, dank and not at all satisfactory. Everything was either broken or breaking. The tub backed up with a black fluid. The hall smelled like old fried chicken.

    The staff were not friendly, nor even attempted to be helpful. Overall, a total disappointment. Run, do not walk, from this hotel.

    Does not look like pictures

    from

    We stayed 2 nights at the Tower Hotel only because we had vouchers.

    Rooms do not look like pictures. Our room did not look like it had been renovated. Small, average, noisy room. Mold in bathroom. Strong order of cigarette smoke. Crowded with tour buses. Staff in dining room very rude.
