Stayed for a week. Premises need a full refurb. Room had faults, some serious. Breakfast was good but not served until 9am at earliest. Whilst there was an offer to put some things out on a tray, for anyone who cycles, fishes or golfs, you want to be up and out much earlier. Bar was empty at night which contrasts... More

We stayed here for one night in August. It was good value for money, 35 euros a night, breakfast was pretty good. The Irish hospitality was not as good as elsewhere in Western Ireland. Not sure they're used to foreigners. Pub ok, pub grub awful. Rooms a little dowdy but clean and comfortable. We would have driven straight through if... More

Stopped in Waterville for one night and booked this B&B by phone the day before. We asked for a sea view room but you couldn't really call it that! You could just about see the sea blocked off mostly by other buildings. The room was decent enough and the B&B is along the sea front. Not that friendly in the... More

Our room was large and looked out over the ocean. Bathroom was big with both a bath and a separate shower. No parking so had to park on the road, this was okay. Wifi extremely poor, just timed out all the time. Breakfast was good quality. Being in the middle of the village it is well located. Would stay again.

We stopped here for lunch while driving the Ring of Kerry on a rainy day. Warm, inviting, popular with the locals. Had the best Sticky Toffee Pudding of our entire trip [in fact, we spent the rest of our vacation ordering it at every chance, but none came even close]. And the food was delicious too. We'd come back here... More

Well cooked Full Irish breakfast. 3. Well located in the village close to facilities. 4. Good TV reception in rooms . 5 Friendly staff. 6.... More

If in this neck of the woods then the sea side village of Waterville is definitely worth a visit. After an embracing walk with the dog along the sea front me and the wife were ready for a few pints of the black stuff and some traditional Irish food. We ventured into O'Dwyers to be greeted with a raging open... More

Although I didn't stay at the hotel, I spent an evening in the classic Irish pub. It was my first trip to Ireland and my first solo trip anywhere, and I stopped in Waterville on my trip through the ring of Kerry for dinner and some coffee. Originally, I was looking for a place that I could take food with... More

This is the picture you have in your head of the classic country pub. Great location across the street from the beach in this four block town. Kids file in for a bite to eat in the restaurant after school. Old timers are sitting at the bar for a pint at 5 pm. A couple of picnic tables out front... More
