We had a fantastic meal here on 19/10/13..... the roast lamb and veg could not have been better, the service was excellent and the surroundings are very elegant........ well worth the drive out, I will certainly be back.

The views here are very nice. Unfortunately, our room was on the ground floor, so not as nice as from most of the rooms. The room was pretty basic, but perfectly clean. We had a lovely walk on the beach nearby - just by the ferry port. A great beach for kids - lots of rocks for climbing as well... More

Stayed here 23/08/13 one night dinner b+b. Great room views, friendly professional staff and really clean rooms. Was most impressed by the food - compliments to the chef - this is a high standard of restaurant cuisine and good value. Well done Waters Edge - keep up the high standards PS Try the Seabass

We were 3 adults 2 kids, and altogether 5 very satisfied people. Duck Spring Rolls cocked to perfection, succulent fillet steak and baby boiled and veg. Dessert chocolate sponge cake. Everything was excellent. Highly recommend this place. A sharp 15 walk from Rathmullan, staff very friendly and mannerly with a good sense of humor.

New hotel, good rooms, attached restaurant, friendly staff. But the wi-fi covers about 2 rooms and 1 corner of the restaurant. As I'm writing this, I'm sitting in a stairwell. With a good wi-fi coverage, my rating would be 5, not 3.

What a beautiful location which can be fully appreciated in this lovely small busy hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed two nights, dinner, bed and breakfast here with my two very young sons. Given that I had my hands full, I was a little nervous but I was helped at every turn by the most pleasant staff. The dinner was yummy but... More

This is a modern , well designed complex overlooking the water. Our room the Earl's Suite was a spacious , elegant room with an equally spacious and well designed bathroom with separate shower. We paid €110 for the night. The overall effect was spoiled by a very grubby and stained carpet. Whilst the carpet in the corridors was a sensible... More

We had dinner in this restaurant recently while staying in Rathmullan. It had been recommended to us by friends who had been there two weeks earlier and thought it was excellent. It lived up to our expectations with beautiful food well presented and very good value. The portions were very generous so there was no need to order side dishes.... More

We stayed on a B&B and dinner basis and loved it. Food was great and views across lough swilly make a beautiful backdrop. Rooms are luxurious and again have waters edge views. Bonus to wake up to the sound of waves lapping outside window. ( it was hot weather when we stayed in July)
