Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely place to stay. Spotless. A 10 min walk to town centre. Barney was so obliging. He even gave us a little lunch bag each when we told him we were heading up Croagh Patrick. It’s the little things.

We were in Westport for a wedding with 6 friends and we all stayed in The Waterside B&B in Westport Harbour. From the welcome, the rooms, the view and the breakfast, we could not fault our stay. Sue and Barney were incredibly welcoming and friendly. They could not have done more for us, allowing us to make snacks and coffee whenever we wanted. We used the sitting room and felt really at home. The rooms were spotless and everything was thought of. WiFi was strong and we were able to store our bikes in the back yard. We would highly recommend a stay in this establishment.

We enjoyed our stay ! Good location, very good bed, very good breakfast. We slept very well at "the waterside Bed § Breakfast", close to the port and near the little town of Westport. Thank you Sue for your welcoming

This is a lovely little dog friendly guest house. The place is well situated, very clean and the lady who runs it is really lovely. The set up with the breakfast was a disappointment- no cooked breakfast. The coffee was lovely though. It’s a bit of a trek up into town so it might not be for everyone, but it’s close to a couple of bars and restaurants. Overall a pleasant stay.

Ten of us, retired friends of many years, stayed here this past week. We chose the Waterside because of its great reviews. We were not disappointed. The Waterside is beautifully situated right down on the Quay, close to bars, restaurants and shops. The views over to Clare Island are incredible. Barney, the owner, was very helpful via email when we were planning our trip and the Waterside provided us with everything we could possibly have needed for our four day stay. We were greeted on arrival by Sue who manages the accommodation, which is spotless and stocked with everything you could need from toiletries to snacks. Sue is the most charming and friendly hostess. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Our car wouldn’t start on the final morning and Sue arranged for a mechanic to come and sort it out. The rooms were well appointed with ensuite facilities, crisp bed linen and really comfy beds. Breakfast was continental - fresh and delicious. You certainly won’t starve at the Waterside! Barney himself is a star - so pleasant and knowledgeable about the local area. As a large group we had the whole of the B&B to ourselves. We would all highly recommend this lovely guesthouse to large groups or individual travellers. Thank you, Barney and Sue! We had a ball and we’ll be back!

Ten of us stayed here for three nights and we could not have been looked after better. Unbelievable care and attention with incomparable continental breakfast. The rooms are all en-suite, if a bit basic, but everything you need. Barney and Sue looked after us like long lost relatives. Location next to the water (get a room facing the harbour) and across from the Towers Restaurant/bar which is a great spot. We will be back.

If you want four star facilities then this is not your place to stay. But if you want value for money with the added bonus of a harbour-side position, good sized room, very nice breakfast and a host who is interested in you and happy to help then The Waterside is for you. Just completed my 2nd stay here and will go back again if I get to the lovely town of Westport again.

Great place. Hosts were very easy to deal with. Loved that all 3 bedrooms were nice and spacious 2 of which had ensuites and one even has a sea view, so nobody had to fight over getting the better room. Great dining in the area, would highly recommend drinks at Helm Bar, and dinner at Tower Restaurant, both are just a matter of meters from the apartment. We will definitely be staying again.
