We stayed at The Waterfront for the Fiddle Fair in May. Our room was spacious, with large windows overlooking the harbour. Having a bath and a separate shower was a bonus. Breakfast choices were delicious, served in the first floor restaurant, where we also enjoyed dinner on one of the nights of our stay. Seafood, meat and desserts were complemented...

Both rooms were very comfortable , equipped with hairdryer , toiletries & tea/coffee making facilities, our room at the front was definitely the larger...

We stayed here for 2 nights & loved it. We got a nice room with a view of the harbor & the square. Breakfast was great, loads of choice & tasty too. We had an evening meal here which is highly recommended.

A perfect place to stay in Baltimore, which is a wonderful village. The hotel has beautiful views, a great location in the town square, right by the harbor, the pub, the store, the castle, etc. The rooms and bathrooms are large, lovely, and clean. The hotel also has a restaurant and bar, great seafood.

Stayed here a few months ago - had a wonderful, generously sized and great value room with beautiful views in a perfect location. Highlight of my stay was the delicious breakfast in the ‘lookout restaurant’ which had stunning views. So good that, more recently, for the night prior to my wedding in the area, I decided to hold a meal...

If you stay here try and get a room with a view. We stayed here for two nights in October and the location is fantastic if you are planning to go to the islands or out whale watching. Our bedroom overlooked the harbour and was large, clean and comfortable and a good breakfast is provided.

Lovely hotel. Rooms overlooking the harbour are stunning but the whole hotel is a gem. Breakfasts are good quality and generous. The hotel is situated in the centre of the village, right on the bay and they could just sit back and be complacent because they have the best spot but they don't - they offer a top notch service....

Baltimore is tiny and The Waterfront is very much the center of activity. The restaurants were both very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are somewhat utilitarian but perfectly good in all respects and waking up with the windows open in the morning reminded me of trips to Maine when I was a kid. The only...

Until I was ready for sleep (after a long day of driving Ireland's absurdly narrow roads en route from Dingle), I was so glad I had picked The Waterfront. The location is amazing. Right in the middle of town, right on the harbor, amazing sea views. However, this central location also makes the patio out front the central gathering place...

The hotel staff were very welcoming and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The highlight of the visit was the food in the Lookout restaurant. Local fish, cooked and served very simply, was delightful. Meat dishes were of a similar standard.Prices were reasonable and the choice was very good. A must for foodies visiting Baltimore.
