Waterfront Rest B&B
Ranked #19 of 45 Clifden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We loved this place. Cosy rooms, cosy beds. Lovely breakfast. The smell of baking scones in the evenings. Great location. We drove to Clifden and one night we got a taxi to and from the B&B which wasn't expensive. The only thing I would change is the power in the shower. BUT look it's a minor thing. We would stay here again and we would recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: all rooms look out over the bay so no worries!

Beautiful place, well situated with a great view from the bedroom but just a few minutes drive from the town. Friendly and helpful owners. Clean and charming rooms. Very tasty Irish Breakfast. Would highly recommend.

Great location on the sky road in Connemara, quiet area close to Clifden. Got a cozy well-equiped room facing the lake :)
Very friendly French hosts and tasty breakfast!
Nice attention from the hosts: we got a bottle of water to drink in case we would be uncertain about the dark colour of the tap water (which was ok by the way :) )
Many thanks for the lovely stay!
Will definitely recommend it!

As we drove along the road to Waterfront B&B we were more & more excited by its location and stunning views! When we arrived, we were greeted by the wonderful aroma of baking and by our smiling, welcoming host - who told us she was just making scones for tomorrow's breakfast and was not at all put out by us arriving a little earlier than we had arranged! Wow!
We were shown to our bedroom - each bedroom looks out over the beautiful river! - and were really impressed by the decor and comfort in every detail. We felt so happy we had chosen 'Waterfront Rest'!
We would strongly recommend 'Waterfront Rest' to anybody looking to stay in that area. The hosts are so friendly, kind and welcoming, the food superb (oh those delicious scones!), rooms clean & beautifully presented. The location - so close to Clifden town & all the surrounding places of interest make it the ideal 'base' for exploring the stunning scenery of the Connemara area. We stayed 3 nights - I would have been happy to stay forever! This has to be one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in - more like a hotel in its quality, but with a homeliness we so appreciated!
The hosts are French, but speak English perfectly. Madame very patiently let me practice my French! Merci Madame and apologies for my mistakes!

Room Tip: All rooms face the river and surrounding hills, so all equally good!

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.
