Excellent breakfast, lovely rooms, great location and the owner Tina is very helpful and friendly. A trip to see the Skelligs is unmissable, and Tina kindly booked this for us. We were very lucky to get a cancellation and the weather was lovely. We would highly recommend the Waterfront B&B.

Portmagee is tiny so there are not many places to stay. The Waterfront has good parking and a welcoming hostess. Our room had a great view and a comfy bed. The bathroom however was extremely tiny. Everything was very clean and the breakfast was good. It was good value for money.

It's was a good B&B who was near everything but I was really disappointed with the village. There's nothing to do in Portmagee except to see Valentia Island who is pretty small, the Kerry Cliffs and to walk on the Island. It's probably because it was raining but I regret to have decide to spend a night in Portmagee. There's... More

We stayed in 10 B&Bs on our recent trip to Ireland and this was our favorite. Tina is a great host. The breakfast was wonderful. The room was great. A fire kept the guest lounge toasty warm in the evening. Its a short walk into the village of Portmagee where we enjoyed dinner in a great local pub. A great... More

Sins many years, we are visiting Tina at Portmagee and I just must say, for me it's like comming home. Just in arriving when you're openig the door, there is bright and charming smile on your face and this sympathy goes on untill our farewell. The B&B is perfect situated, quiet and our room had a fantasic seaview. I never... More

A friend and I stayed here last week, we were greeted at the door by Tina who turned out to be a brilliant hostess. The breakfast was amazing and the room was spotless. I would definitely recommend staying here if you come to the lovely Portmagee

i would not recommend this bed and breakfast. besides being hit with the smell of cigarettes when tina opened the door, it just didn't have any redeeming qualities. the room was very small, and the bathroom was the size of a small closet. the breakfast was fine enough, though. we all wished we had stayed somewhere else :(

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!
