“Wonderful place to stay if you love the beach!”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for two days to do a little surfing, walking on the beach, and experiencing the seaweed baths. Martina give the most incredible welcome we have ever received when checking into a place. The place is located right on the ocean and is very close walking distance to do a little exploring in the town. When we return, we are definitely staying here again!

Return visit to this beautiful hotel. Big welcome from Martina who along with all her staff couldn't do enough for you. Wish we could have stayed longer. The whole ambience of the place is so welcoming and calm. Wonderful breakfast with homemade soda bread all served overlooking the stunning beach. A seaweed bath is a must, you can't book but call in and they will tell you a good time to return if necessary. Every room is well appointed complete with wine glasses ready on a intimate table overlooking the sea if you ask for a sea view. Excellent restaurant as well. We had an early start on our last day so a tray of tailor made breakfast was outside our door. This hotel is 5 stars +++ in our opinion.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if possible. For swimming pool above read 'the sea'!

The Waterfront House is a lovely hotel in the tiny beach town of Enniscrone. The beach is a long shallow two mile stretch of sand where novice surfers can try their luck. Enniscrone is also known for its seaweed baths (didn't try one). When booking a room make sure to ask for a water view. Open your windows and drink an early morning cup of tea overlooking beautiful Killala Bay. Even if the sun is not shining it is lovely. The restaurant has an "early bird" menu with a variety of seafood, chicken, beef, and vegetarian options. Alan and the other wait staff are efficient, cheerful, and knowledgeable about the area. If you want to arrange a seaweed bath or get information about other sights and activities, just ask Martina. She will ensure your stay is a happy one.

Room Tip: Make sure to book a water view room.

We stayed at Waterfront House for three nights while visiting family. Martina made us feel very welcome and the hotel itself is beautifully sited with a great view over Enniscrone bay. Has on- site parking for those with a vehicle and its own restaurant and wine bar.

Rooms were very comfortable and a good size, with nice bathroom with decent shower (not common in Ireland!). Breakfasts were a highlight of our stay, with everything prepared fresh to order and with the highest quality ingredients - all consumed while we looked out over the beach to the ocean.

Would definitely recommend for either a short or longer term stay. Rolo (the resident dog) also adds some character!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an ocean view room

The only regret about staying at the Waterfront House is that we didn't stay longer! Martina the owner welcomed us and informed us about the local attractions and I am so glad I took her advice about the seaweed baths.If you are in the area you really should treat yourself to this.The room was large and spotlessly clean.We had a sea view and even though it rained most of the time, it was a beautiful view.The restaurant and wine bar serve good food and at very reasonable prices.The young staff they had in the restaurant were cheerful and helpful and constantly checked for dishes and glasses to be taken away.The full Irish breakfast was one of the best we had.The restaurant is well used by the locals as we saw first hand.When we arrived at lunch there was a first communion celebration and in the evening a 70th birthday party.I will be visiting Ireland again next year and this time will make sure I stay longer at the Waterfront House.

Room Tip: Any room with a sea view.

We spent two wonderful days at the Waterfront House last week. Martina, the owner, welcomed us on our arrival and advised us on all the local attractions. We stayed in room 106 which had a fantastic sea view. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent and the wine very good value. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Will visit again soon.

The rooms are larger than normal hotel and b&b, the breakfast is wonderful as there is such a good choice from healthy options to the great Irish fry-up plus loads of juices to choose from.
The views from the sea-facing rooms are unbelievable and have 100% sea views and no other hotel in the village can say that. The rooms are immaculating looked after by the staff and I can only recommend it. I'm back there again in September.

Room Tip: Sea view room is a must if they are available. Do not worry about the noise, there isnt any unless y...
