The room was very comfortable with a beautiful view. It feels very secluded when there which is great for sleeping BUT it is only a 5 min drive to Clifden or 10 min to Letterfrack. Host was fantastic and the freshly cooked breakfast was divine, would definitely reccomend the pancakes. We were promptly welcomed and checked-out because of the restrictions at the moment, which was a tiny bit unfortunate. It did not take away from the stay. Very clean and Covid19 ready facility.

Waterfront Rest is run by owners Lydie & Pierre, a lovely French couple whose aesthetic reflects that of their French background. Our room looked across the lake, and featured a comfortable double bed, vanity table & stool, armchair, coffee/tea machine as well as extra blankets and pillows in the small wardrobe space. The bathroom had a standing shower, toilet and sink with a handful of spots to hang towels too. Though the hot water temperature and pressure was decent, the shower doors were rather narrow parting open on the corner, which I felt was slightly unnerving stepping out from. We availed of breakfast in the morning, which is served 8.30am-9.30am. The breakfast room had well spaced tables and we nabbed one by the window. Lydie had asked us upon arrival whether we’d like the Irish Breakfast or Pancakes, and we both opted for the latter. At breakfast we were each given three mini pancakes (store-bought) cooked in butter, with maple syrup on the table. To be honest, I was expecting something more, perhaps some fresh fruit or yogurt. We were then given tea and toast with a rhubarb & aniseed compote on the side. There was also a selection of cereal and nut & seed country bread, but overall there were just too many carbs, and personally it was too heavy a breakfast for me. We were able to check in and out very easily, and the on-site parking was very good. Our B&B was a 10-minute drive to the main centre of Clifden town. Lydie was a wonderful host and although I didn’t manage to capture sunrise due to the heavy fog, I can imagine waking up here is a spectacle.

Waterfront is in a beautiful quiet location looking over the lake but only 5 min drive to Clifden. We received a warm friendly welcome and Lydie was always hapoy to help with any questions. Home baking was very tasty. Really clean, well maintained and rooms warm and cosy. We will definately visit again

I really cannot fault our stay at the Waterfront Rest. Our host Lydie could not have been nicer. The rooms are clean and comfortable with nice decor and the most stunning views of the bay. The b&b sits on the Sky Road which is a magnificent drive with some of the best views of the wild atlantic way! It is 3 minutes from N59, which gives you an easy route into nearby Clifden or elsewhere in the opposite direction. Everywhere you go in this part of Ireland gives you spectacular views! I would highly recommend the B&B.

This house is really nice. It has been decorated with love. The rooms are cozy and the beds comfortable. Every room has sea view and it is really breathtaking. You should watch the sundown or sunrise here
