“Great location, amazing view and nice hosts!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We staid at the Waterfront Rest B&B while doing a road trip in the Connemara. I strongly recommend this B&B if you are looking for a quiet and resting place to stay. It's in the middle of the Connemara, the view is amazing, the hosts are super welcoming and will give you plenty of advice on what you need to see around Cliffden and in the Connemara!

We only stayed for one night at Waterfront Rest B&B, but we really enjoyed our stay. The hostess was about as hospitable as you could hope for, and she made a delicious Irish breakfast in the morning. The property was nice and in a great location to explore the region of Connemara, which is breathtaking! Our only complaint was that the walls were quite thin between the rooms, so if you are a light sleeper, that might bother you, but other than that, it had every amenity I would expect out of a B&B. We highly recommend!

A beautiful, relaxing, clean and lovely place, where you can spent your days in a your great confortable private rooms, or in the breakfast room, whatching outside the window at some of the most incredible and beautiful landscapes in the world.

I am very sorry for you, but you speak about heating...there is heating everywhere in the house( 20 degres), remember the owner lives here all the year. And the mobile heating is just an extra for more confort!!!!
We provide all you need on the bathroom, shower gel, shampoo, towells... i don't understand the problem.
We provide all you need to prepare tea or coffee and i'am always here if you need something else or more. When your friend needed milk, i gave him imediately fresh milk.
You are worried about the check in and the check out but it's not a surprise,( like the Tv).... it is written on the description in booking.com....where you booked the bedroom.

I know we can't make happy everybody, but i am always polite and always happy to receive friendly customers at home....and thanks God, it will never change.

Their host were really nice, welcoming and smiling. Our bedroom was well decorated, warm and the beds really comfortable. And the breakfast with the view on the sea was delicious and wonderful.

We can only recommand that place !

This B&B is a real mix of experiences. The location is great, the host is very friendly and helpful but a couple of things let it down in our stay. They may seem trivial but the competition in this market is fierce. The common walls are paper thin (honeymoon couples beware) there is no TV in each room (no problem for honeymoon couples) and the shower is below average in pressure and a low flow shower-head..
