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 The resident sitting lounge was a dark, outdated room at the back of the "hotel" with a window facing a wall.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

For anyone that wants to bring their dog with them The Waterfront is the perfect pet friendly hotel. And unlike some other "dog friendly" hotels The Waterfront actually feels pet friendly, your pet is as welcome you are. Your dog doesn't have to go in a kennel or one of the older, less pretty rooms (like Cromleach Lodge in Sligo... More

My Partner and I stayed at The Waterfront in October 2013 during their quiet period and we had the time of our lives. The staff at The Waterfront were great and happy to help and give us directions to all the local tourist haunts. We met some great people around the town. The breakfast menu was great and have everything... More

We couldn't have asked for more! The hotel may not look like much from the outside but we had a lovely room - clean and tidy, large bed, spacious, sea views... need I go on?! The welcome was the friendly Irish style that I'd expect and the breakfast in the morning was super yummy. Definitely recommend and would definitely go... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at The Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, and could not have been happier with everything! Room was fabulous, spotlessly clean, and spacious with best view of harbour. Bathroom was lovely – modern and spacious. Kate, the owner, was extremely gracious, friendly, and of great assistance to me, since I arrived at the hotel without... More

We have brought my father to the Waterfront on many occasions now as he is from Cape Clear island and moved to Dublin many years ago. My mother passed away four years ago and my father has Parkinson's. The trips have meant so much to him because of the nostalgic element but also because the staff in the Waterfront make... More
