We stayed here for two nights as part of a girls' weekend in Ireland and really enjoyed our stay. We had rented a car to drive to Waterford upon arriving in Ireland and chose to return it the airport when we returned home, so the free parking in the rear was an excellent benefit.
The staff person who checked us in was friendly and efficient, as were all of the staff members we came into contact with. None were especially helpful with recommendations about the area, but we were able to figure things out on our own.
The room we were given looked like it could have been a triple or a quad and was on the first floor in the back of the hotel. Upon entering the room, there was a good sized sitting area with a desk, side table with tea service, couch and arm chair. That was followed by the bathroom and the sleeping area, with two twin beds and a wardrobe. The living room couch appeared to be a pull-out, although we never really checked.
We loved the location of this hotel. It was less than a ten minute walk to the Temple Bar area, where we had dinner the first evening, and was even closer to Stephen's Green, where we picked up our hop-on-hop-off tour bus.
On our second evening, we were unable to locate an off-license that was still open after our tour, but were able to secure a bottle of wine to bring back to our room from the bar in the Harcourt Hotel without any difficulty. We were mildly annoyed because the room service menu said that service didn't end until 11pm, but were told by the front desk that it had ended at 10pm. But the Harcourt was about a half a block down the street and we were able to get what we needed without any trouble, so not a big deal.
We did the continental breakfast one morning and it was fine. A good selection of cereal, pastry/bread, coffee, tea, juice, fruit (canned and fresh), yogurt, cheese, etc.
We would definitely consider staying at Harrington Hall again!
Ask for a room in the back as those are quieter.
