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

Stayed for just one night at this lovely little hotel, would have liked a second night but they were holding their May "SeaFood and Boat building Fair" sponsored by Guinness - and understandably were a little busy ! Rooms were lovely, overlooking the front and really lovely restaurant also with spectacular views. Would definitely visit again - and the Irish... More

A really lovely hotel at a reasonable price in a stunning setting. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Myself and a friend shared a room (room 3) which was bright, clean and very comfy. Superb views across the bay from our windows. The service was spot on too. Hotel staff were attentive and welcoming ( we dealt with Rebecca for check in,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and were delighted with the bedroom which had a great view of Baltimore harbour. The room was beautifully furnished and immaculate clean. Breakfast was perfect with buffet cereals, fruit, orange juice etc, also plus a huge cooked full irish, the village was generally quiet with tourists but I can imagine the square outside... More

I stayed one night at the Waterfront but really wish it could have been much more!! Eventhough a single female traveller in the middle of November, I had such a great time, everyone made me feel welcome, thanks in particular to Jaouen Jr and the great welcome from both ladies at reception. My room was so pretty, view was amazing... More

This was one of my best service experiences ever: I forgot my hat in the hotel bar. Next day, when I noticed it, I was already in Killarney and on my way to Ennis. So I called the hotel management. They offered me to send my hat to my next B&B in Ennis, which they did. They didn't even want... More

A charming hotel with very friendly and attentive staff. We stayed in room seven, which had the most astonishing view of the harbour and across the bay (it did help that the weather was gloriously sunny - the next day it howled down with rain which was a shame but one could not blame the The Waterfront hotel for that!)....
