Years since I was here - still as busy and popular as ever though on a nice sunny afternoon. Good bowl of soup but the ordering and paying was a little confusing. Brought some water for our dog which was a nice touch.

Stayed here in early July having spent a lovely few days here last September. We were not disappointed on either occasion. What a fantastic setting! Our room was a superior one overlooking the harbour. Great spacious room with a really top class bathroom. A lovely balcony to sit in and read and watch the changing Atlantic. Our food in the...

this guesthouse is right on the harbor. the view is incredible and the accommodations were very comfortable. My room had a little balcony with a door that opened and that was awesome. Little hard to find a room plug and those inside were not all geared for even the regular 220. Had never seen that in all the years I... More

I stayed at The Waterfront Hotel one night while in Baltimore recently and was more than pleased with it. A fine little pub and a lovely room where I had an excellent salmon pizza with a couple of Bulmers sent up to where I could sit back to eat and enjoy a beautiful sea view. Very reasonably priced, I would... More

Stayed at the Waterfront for 2 days last weekend, it has been over 4 years since our last visit and we asked ourselves why it had taken so long to return. We had the most fabulous view imaginable from our room out over the harbor, and we noted that they have done some work on the bathrooms since we were... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. Overall, I would stay there again, but I wasn’t totally satisfied either. On the positive side, the superior room was great. It had a great view of the harbor. The room was huge. It had a king size bed, and they brought in a rollaway bed for our son, but even with the... More

We have just spent two nights at The Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Co. Cork. Reception and bar staff there were very welcoming. Our room had magnificent views over Baltimore Harbour. It was a very large room with an equally large bathroom complete with full bath and a double shower unit. There was a good variety on the breakfast menu, and... More

Recently stayed in this hotel for a 3 night break. The room was fabulous with great harbour views. It was very spacious with seperate bath/shower. Breakfast was somewhat disappointing. Choice was poor and not served till 8.30. The resident sitting lounge was a dark, outdated room at the back of the "hotel" with a window facing a wall. Overall not... More

We wanted to go whale watching in Baltimore, Ireland. It didn't work out, but everything else did. We had the best room with the best view. Comfortable bed, great shower and a large bathtub. Bar downstairs with great outside seating overlooking the harbor. The staff was great, especially Becky. This was wonderful. Wish we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in September. We stayed in a "Superior" room which was very nice indeed. We had a great view directly over the harbour, which was lovely. Baltimore is a lovely place which holds long memories for me. The Jacob family made us feel very welcome. I hope to go back again next... More
