“Great setting, great place to stay.”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

This upper class guesthouse/hotel has sixteen rooms and is a pleasure to stay at. Martina and her staff are very good at what they do. The lobby and dining area very serene places to chill out and relax. The views from the bedrooms and dining room across the wonderful beach is a joy and constantly changes throughout the day. The food is very good and quite reasonably priced, they also have an extensive wine list. The rooms are very clean, as is the rest of the establishment, and have great views. I would recommend this property for a short weekend stay in Enniscrone. If I were being ultra critical I would say the TV is very old, but I didn't use it much. The bath towels are on the small side and the wi fi didn't work in the room, I also saw other guests in the lobby area using their computers. One negative on my meal was the the steak I ordered medium rare came to me almost well done. But I would recommend this establishment without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.

I spent four wonderful days at the Waterfront House Hotel in October. From start to finish everything was perfect. Martina and the entire staff could not do enough for us. The food was excellent, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The views are spectacular from the room and when walking along the beach and Enniscrone walkway. We didn't want to leave and will return for sure.

Room Tip: Request an ocean facing room if possible.

This hotel simply has great views, great rooms and great decor. Everything seemed so clean and the staff were really nice. They had us in our room and booked in for seaweed baths within 10 minutes of getting to the house. Breakfast was also good. No complaints at all.

I've stayed in many places all over the world, through nine major trips, and this is as good a value and comfort as you could require. Ideally situated overlooking the bay, the Owner, Martina could not be faulted being, courteous and extraordinarily helpful. She even helped us find further accommodation after we decided to extend our stay in the area. Rooms are far larger than you could expect, and so well priced. Both dinner and breakfast were first class with a surprisingly good wine list. The windows open to allow the sea noise in and Martina even organised local Seawed baths and massages to ease out the extended holiday aches.

Room Tip: Windows allow the ocean in, but keep the noise out when closed.

I cannot speak highly enough about the Waterfront, Enniscrone.

Having spent many happy family vacations in Enniscrone as a child, I've returned to the Waterfront for small family reunions over the past few years. Martina is an exceptional host and we have all agreed that each visit has been better than the last.

As an Irish person living in the US I would recommend the Waterfront to my friends as an environment to experience real Irish hospitality, oceanfront and in comfortable surroundings.

No "hotel" in the area can match the Waterfront experience :-) A gem!

My husband and I stayed at this lovely small hotel with a Vagabond tour of northern Ireland (also excellent). We were greeted so warmly by the woman at the front desk. Check-in done in a flash and then she phoned to book those of us who wanted appointments at the seaweed baths a few doors down the street. Our room was beautiful, big, very clean, very comfortable bed - best of all a table set with wine glasses in front of a big window overlooking the ocean. Really, you could sit and watch the ocean waves for days. Just stunning. Our group ate in the hotel restaurant that evening - all together at a long beautifully-set table. Everyone liked what they had - my husband had an excellent steak;I had a seafood pie, also delicious. The owner helped with a little surprise birthday treat for one of the tour group - very fun. There were a lot of wines on offer which the group approved of. Breakfast was also good - excellent coffee, cereal, fruit and then a choice of hot breakfasts. Very generous portions. It was a beautiful place to stay, even on the windy September day we had there. I would love to get back there one day, for a longer time. A friendly welcome, lovely clean room with a view, great food. (And the seaweed bath was unique and amazing.)

Having spent a lot of time this summer in the waterfront, I was blessed with excellent weather in this very hospitable hotel. Martina, Patricia , Jennifer and staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. I really enjoyed the range and quality of food available in the dining room; especially the daily selection of fresh fish. Looking forward to another relaxing holiday here next year and reacquainting myself with Rollo the dog!

Room Tip: Try and book a sea view room for lovely sunset views.
