We made a booking for two nights at Waterfront when another local B&B lost our reservations, and we are so glad we ended up here instead of at the other place! We loved it as soon as we saw it; it is a cheerful, attractive yellow building right next to the Bay, just a very short stroll to Portmagee. Tina... More

We stayed here for 2 nights so my husband and kids could take the trip to Skellig Michael. We thought we were out of luck getting tickets a first, but Tina got us 3 from a boat captain due to cancellations..Tina is a warm and friendly host. The rooms were comfortable and breakfasts very good. It is walking distance into... More

This is a very professionally run B&B in a perfect, easy to find location in Portmagee. The room we had was very clean, quiet, comfortable, and spacious with an absolutely beautiful view. Breakfast was delicous with many good choices. Tina was a very nice and extremely helpful hostess. Would definitely return!

We stayed in July for a trip to the Skelligs. Tina was warm and inviting when we arrived and went off to confirm our trip with the boat operator. In the morning she came to let us know the trip had been cancelled due to th weather. She was more than willing to find out what we wanted to do... More

We only spent one night here, arriving late and leaving early. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and neat. The sunset view through the picture window in the sitting room is spectacular. The price was very fair. Would stay here again.

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
