Hotels in Waterford
When you stay in Waterford City & County
You wake up after a refreshing night’s sleep and, half dreaming still, look down onto boats on the River Suir and imagine all the comings and goings through time to historic Waterford City. Then you head down to your breakfast at the Granville Hotel. Mmm… a classic full Irish or their signature Blaa-Eggs Benedict (those toasted floury Waterford Blaa rolls are scrumptious!). Either way, you’re well set up for your day as you leave this former merchants’ house-turned family run 4-star boutique hotel (incidentally once home to Thomas Francis Meagher who designed the Irish tricolour). And then your historic daydreamings come to life as you explore the Viking Triangle of Ireland’s oldest city, the Bishop’s Palace, House of Waterford Crystal, and not one but two cathedrals.
You will surely stay longer. There’s so much to do. Maybe tomorrow you’ll cycle along the Waterford Greenway followed by an evening performance at the Theatre Royal. Luckily there are lots of welcoming places, like the Granville Hotel or the Tower Hotel, where you can stay around the city (and hosts are great for local information). For example: family-run Dooley’s Hotel on the Merchant’s Quayside, Waterford Marina Hotel, Faithlegg House Hotel, Traceys Hotel, the Viking Hotel or Waterford Castle Hotel with its award-winning restaurant, lodges, golf and other activities all on a private island.
Or head deeper into Ireland’s Ancient East. Ballyrafter Country House Hotel with its cosy pub and restaurant at Lismore is ideally placed for visiting Lismore Castle Gardens and the heritage town. And in between walking the Comeragh and Knockmealdown mountains you can catch your breath at a hiking hostel, or five-star B&B of the Year (2020) Glasha Farmhouse at Ballymacarbry: breakfasting heartily on buttery scrambled eggs wrapped in smoked salmon.
Along the coast there’s accommodation from inn to guesthouse and camping; luxury five-star Cliff House Hotel (close to medieval Ardmore Round Tower); and Ardmore Glamping Pods: the snuggest of getaways where families can run free and nearby beach fun is the stuff of the kids’ dreams.
