My wife and I stayed at the Waterfront before a trip to the Skelligs in June of 2014. There's not a whole lot to say other than that we enjoyed a very comfortable room with all of the modern amenities as well as a great breakfast and very nice hosts. The view from our room was beautiful and we were... More

We stayed here on 17th - 20th June. After arrival we could choose between the twin room on the first floor, which we had actually reserved, and the triple on the ground floor. Because the 1st floor is directly below the roof and the weather was warm and sunny (fortunately!), we took the triple. The room faced the backyard with... More

My room was so clean and fresh, it was like everything was brand new! Tina was so welcoming which was lovely after 3 very long days of driving. And the morning breakfast was delicious. It is worth the drive to stay at this bed and breakfast and Tina will even help you make reservations to visit Skellig Islands!

This place was such a great find. The owner was so friendly, and happy to make our arrangements to go out to Skellig Michael. Our room was nice and large and clean and comfortable. All we could ask for. Breakfast puts The Waterfront over the top though as it was delicious and plenty of it. We had a lovely time... More

We stopped in Portmagee on our way around the Ring of Kerry. The Waterfront was lovely. Tina and her daughter were very accommodating. Other B&B's had strict timelines for breakfast, but Tina was so flexible! Breakfast was delicious, as was the french press coffee, yum! While we were having breakfast, a couple was trying to take turns occupying their child... More

This was a lovely place that is very close to Skellig Michael. The hostest, Tina Murphy, even made arrangements for us to take a boat trip to the Skelligs. This was one of the best parts of our trip to Ireland. Breakfast was great and there were plenty of nice touches to make the place seem special. Tina recommended a... More

Very nice, clean and accommodating B&B with lovely breakfast featuring the owner's homemade bread. Although we had a back view, the front of the B&B faces a lovely and tranquil bay, resplendent with small fishing boats. The owner is very friendly and not overly zealous. Lovely stay.

This is an excellent B&B with very high standards at a great price in a great location. The room was really nicely decorated; everything looked new, and was very clean and comfortable. Towels, (which are kept warm on a heated rail in the bathroom), were replaced every day without us asking as well as biscuits, tea, coffee etc. The owner... More

Well positioned for the Ring of Kerry, Skellig Michael tours, Valentia Isle and area.... a lovely home that satisifies.... Chritine M welcomes you in her downhome, low key approach that does not threaten. She serves a fine breakfast and provides well appointed and spotless rooms that are much appreciated. A lovely stay... thanks.

This was the best bed and breakfast my partner and I stayed in during our trip. Clean, fantastic view, good wifi, nice hostess, peat fire, delicious breakfast. The owner will even help with a trip to Skellig Michael. We highly recommend! Thanks, Tina!
