Thumbs Up for this B&B ! We loved this place, the host was pleasant, friendly and kind. We felt at home right away. The room was of a good size with lots of room to move around, we even got an extra bed in our room. The color scheme was natural and soothing. The biggest plus was the remodeled bathroom,...

The Waterfront B&B was recommended to us when we were planning our third trip to Ireland, and it was a great choice. The rooms were bright and airy with a view to the water and comfortable. It is just a short walk to the town centre.

Comfortable attractive rooms, we stayed there twice and so saw 2 of them. Friendly hosts. Great location. Amazing breakfast! I hesitate to review it because I would never want to find them with no vacancy for me! Lol! You will not be disappointed.

We seriously thought we walked into a model room of a house.... When we saw our bedroom. It was immaculate in every way imaginable. Beautiful modern room. The bed was so comfy!!! The bathroom and shower.... I was getting used to small ones until this place - felt like I was at home all over again with how spacious it...

This quaint B&B is the perfect place to stay if you are planning a Skellig trip. The owner Tina will arrange the boat tour out to the Skelligs for you also. The house is very nice, clean and modern with a spectacular view out on to the bay. Tina cooks a lovely breakfast (I'd recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled...

Tina was a delightful host. The rooms are beautiful and she freshens them daily. Breakfasts are delicious with a wide array of healthy choices. Tina handled our reservation to Skellig Michael with Brendan Casey, who was wonderful to us and spent time making it a very memorable trip. The suggestions we received at Tina's place were all great and made...

I'd talked about going to Skellig Michael for years but every year when I planned to go trips to the island were booked up weeks in advance. This year was no different in that respect so we decided to go down to Portmagee for a couple of nights in hope of getting a cancellation. I phoned Mrs Murphy, booked in...

Spent 2 nights staying in a room at the front of the B&B with beautiful views of the water. Very clean with delicious breakfast. Good knowledge of area & recommended places to eat. Glad we took Tina's advice & visited the Skellig chocolate factory.

Mrs. Tina Murphy is an excellent host while Mr. John Murphy cooks up a very nice gourmet style breakfast. This superbly managed cozy, inexpensive, yet luxurious and comfortable B&B is located just the perfect distance from the town proper --- so it's quiet and peaceful, you can enjoy the view of the strait and the island of Valentia right in...
