... It looked so good, Grant ditched his grilled cheese and claimed the dish as his.
By now we were practically stumbling back to the apartment. Tiffani tried to encourage everyone to stay awake but sleep won out with everyone except Sharon. Shay said she didn't come all the way to Ireland to go to sleep, so the ladies (minus Chloé) decided to head out!
Tiffani had heard there was an Irish dance show detailing the ...
... this week. I think it was only rainy and overcast a couple of times, never for an entire day anyway.
We hit a few pubs around town and then, at the tiniest pub in Dublin, we met some Irish guys around our age. They took us to another pub away from the center of town that was full of locals and some acoustic Irish music. Was great! Randy and I were definitely the only non-Irish in the whole place! And the guys (Paul and Joey) were really ...
... get drinks and then we had to sit outside because there was no room inside the place. There was some guy next to us singing to his iPad, it was rather strange but entertaining. After we tried out that place we went to the famous Temple Bar, they had live music starting so we stayed and listened to that and had some nachos and nuts to snack on. The music was mixed between traditional and singing. It was a lot of fun. When we left, we decided we wanted dinner..I believe, I ...
... checks. We got through to the lounge and chatted with them a bit more before boarding the plane and going through the usual fight for seats on the Ryanair plane, then made the very short flight over to Dublin. We landed in Ryanair style, on time, but bouncing onto the runway, then got off the plane and headed through the airport. We got questioned much more than usual at the passport check about our plans and how long we were there for, then went through, picked up ...
... WITH AN 80 year old woman. I was left holding a handbag and walking stick while Mary went off to try some clothes on, she returned with her picks that fitted only to realise she didn't have her own jacket and had lost it in the change rooms, she went back in and couldn't find it, so the poor attendant had to go cubicle by cubicle asking if any one had seen it, to mum's relief it was found. Exhausted (me) we sat in a pretty patisserie had a coffee and a croissant and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Waterloo House Dublin
We spent two nights in the family suite at Waterloo House in August. Having just arrived in Ireland a few hours earlier, and still getting used to driving our rental car, it was a relief to easily find this wonderful place - even better that it had its own car park (trying to find street parking would have been impossible!)
Do your homework on the location
I can't believe people giving this place a negative review based on its location. If you want to stay in a city centre hotel, do your homework and look at a map.
We liked the location of Waterloo House because it was outside of the city centre. Ballsbridge is a lovely area with some nice pubs and restaurants and we enjoyed the walk (about 15-20 minutes) into the city along Baggott Street.
Our room was fairly small and the furnishings were a bit old but it was very clean. No bath in the bathroom, just a walk in shower which suited us fine. Breakfast was good in a lovely dining room. The staff were friendly and very helpful.
Just returned from a 2 night stay, room was clean and comfortable,not disappointed, a little out of town but all the better fro a good nites sleep. Handy for Baggot street and all the qulaity bars and coofee shops.
Went to the Waterloo Guesthouse in September 2005 and had a great time there. If possible, you should choose room No. 36 or 37. You have to pay the price for a standard double room, but they are larger than other rooms. Rooms are really clean and staff friendly. The Guesthouse isn't to far away from city centre. It's just a walk of 15 minutes and the area is quite secure. Food wasn't too much but the quality was good. I can really recommned this Guesthouse.
Not A Good Location
We stayed at Waterloo House on our first trip to Dublin in September. The rooms were fine but we were very disappointed in the location. It was too far away from the city center and not good for touring. I would choose another location next time.
Too far away from city centre -
We stayed at Waterloo House and found it to be too far away from the city centre, we had to get buses and taxis to and from the guesthouse all the time we were there, which added significantly to the cost of our stay . While it may be nice and quiet we wished we had chosen some other guesthouse right in the city centre. If you want to be close to the city centre - avoid this place.
Good location and above average B&B
Stayed here in May and would recommend this B&B. Quiet, safe neighborhood within easy reach of public transportation to city center or a 15-minute walk. Very nice accommodations: large room, nicely appointed, good breakfast. I feel that I made the right choice staying at Waterloo House.
All is quiet at waterloo house
I Stayed at waterloo house from june 9th to 12th.The guesthouse is in the more quieter part of dublin which is great if you what a goodnight sleep. The breakfast was large and plentful which set you up for the day. Not far from the guesthouse is a small area where there are a selection of bars and restaurants which if you get the chance go to the cuban restaurant as the food is excellent but you must book a table.
Would stay here again
We were so pleased with the Waterloo House. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious, quiet and comfortable. I would stay here again without a doubt.
Waterloo House was a wonderful stay for us. The staff was hospitality and tried to help when possible. The breakfasts are great. The room was small but comfortable once we got the heater working. The location is fabulous, too.
We would recommend Waterloo and are now planning to return in a few weeks.
