Athenaeum House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is a gem! Beautiful and with awesome staff. The restaurant is absolutely over the top! Great food and with wonderful service! I would stay here again the next time I am in Waterford.

Our GPS (Garmin 2577) first sent us to a dead end residential road that was hard to get turned around on. We had a brochure with GPS coordinates (which seems to be more common in Ireland than actual addresses) and that also took us to the wrong location. Once I found the hotel we were warmly greeted and welcomed into a very nice room. The room was extremely clean. The only issue I had was that the room was a bit warm and we had to open the windows to help cool it down - as the room had no AC. The breakfast was fantastic with a full Irish breakfast and a buffet. We did not really explore the area too much but it is several miles away from the city center area. The hotel did have a restaurant but it is a bit pricey.

The hotel was fine however based upon the description, I thought you could actually see the river from the hotel which is not really the case. If you can see it, it is in the far distant.
