This is a great dive center and location. The center has a B&B within it as well as an on-site pool, and it is 1 minute walk from the pier which is just so easy for getting out to dives.
All equipment is top notch. Corbin and Liz are great instructors as are all the others who i have dived with (yet... I'll certainly be going back) and all the staf of the facility are so friendly and accomodating. Sandra is incredible to deal with, so warm and helpful.

Myself and my husband had a fantastic stay at Waterworld. You can tell the love that has gone into this place- So warmly greeted by Sandra and hearing the history of this family run business was fascinating. We definitely felt at home for our stay. I did the Open water course with an excellent instructor Liz, who was patient and went above and beyond to ensure I had a really positive diving experience. My husband did the refresher diving course and had some nice dives here aswell. Can’t wait to come back again- such a stunning area, and such warm hospitality. A great family run business!

Waterworld is simply awesome and my time there was truly unforgettable! Just imagine...ocean on your left, ocean on your right, untouched nature. It's magical...

Waterworld has all you need to enjoy a great diving trip:
+ The accommodation is homely, clean and comfortable
+ Super homemade breakfast - try the waffles!
+ The diving center is in the same building - it couldn't be more convenient
+ The equipment is up-to-date and serviced regularly
+ The pier and boot are a stone throw away
+ The dive sites are fantastic
+ The crew is experienced, super professional and accommodating
+ The stunning ocean and beautiful nature is all around you
+ A pub with great food and beers is just down the road

And most importantly: Sandra, family & crew makes you feel at home! Everyone is more than happy to share stories and experiences, so if you fancy good company, you have it right there :)

Long story short: I would recommend everyone - from beginners to professionals - a diving holiday at Waterworld. You will not regret it!

P.S.: I will return - it's a plan, for sure.

Fantastic trip as usual. On this occasion the weather was against us but from experience we made the trip from Dublin anyway. Sandra give us fantastic optional locations which did not disappoint. Just shows that this family run business will go out if their way to support and help in anyway possible. It's a home away from home and I highly recommend. See you again soon.

Thank you Sandra, Pat, Ronnie and crew from a group of adventurers in need of some Vitamin Sea. The hospitality throughout was a truly welcoming and magically Irish experience. Harbour House never disappoints, all guests were catered for, the service was first class and natural. The advice and expertise re diving is amongst the best available. We will be back.....and I hope soon.

An excellent setup which has clearly been perfected over generations. B&B located a 1 minute walk from the pier where you can catch the boat to your chosen dive site. The instructors and guides are all very well educated with outstanding local knowledge.

Highly recommend diving with Waterworld. From the lovely Sandy that manages the operation, to Pat front of house, to the highly professional and committed dive masters. The view from the dive centre is amazing, overlooking the bay and Maharee islands. George was my divemaster and he was fully in to make sure I was successful. It was my open water course and to say that the level of professionalism and commitment to developing my skills was superb is an understatement. Set in an amazing location overlooking the bay, Waterworld is ran by good people that are passionate about diving and developing your skills for a long term happy, safe hobby.

Just finished a fantasy Scuba Diving weekend at Waterworld. Our group were well looked after by Sandra and all the team. The rooms were fantastic and the friendly staff made us all feel very much at home. Dive safety was exceptional and I must give Nuala a special mention for the great service and conversation at breakfast.

I had the pleasure to dive with Waterworld on the 8th of July. Booking was easy and crew was fantastic. I was the only diver scheduled that day and was given the royal treatment of a captain, dive master and two mates on board for just myself. I am a warm water diver from Florida but the crew was great about double checking all of my gear, in fact, it was the most thorough buddy check I have been a part of after hundreds of dives. Scuba Pro equipment was safe and anyone reading this review should be diving all new equipment as they called over the radio on my short trip in to the dock to inform the crew they would be marking it all afternoon. If I am ever in the area again, I will be making a visit to Waterworld.
