Very clean, close to the harbor, and a very helpful and friendly owner. Tina even set up our trip to Skelling Michael with a local tour operator, Brendan Casey. Breakfast was great too. Thank you Tina!!

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...

This beautiful home has everything a weary hiker on the Kerry Way needs...gorgeous room, comfortable bed and an outstanding breakfast. The hosts John and Tina are delightful and eager to please. John was very knowledgeable with bird identification and Tina always greeted me with a very welcoming smile. Their niece Orla was so kind to transport our luggage to the...

I stayed here the night before my Skellings outing. This place has great reviews and it didn't disappoint. The rooms were clean and decorated nicely. Previous reviews had commented that the bathrooms were small, but what they lacked in size, they made up in amenities. The showers had great water pressure (something other B&Bs I have been to lacked) and...

Excellent breakfast, lovely rooms, great location and the owner Tina is very helpful and friendly. A trip to see the Skelligs is unmissable, and Tina kindly booked this for us. We were very lucky to get a cancellation and the weather was lovely. We would highly recommend the Waterfront B&B.

Portmagee is tiny so there are not many places to stay. The Waterfront has good parking and a welcoming hostess. Our room had a great view and a comfy bed. The bathroom however was extremely tiny. Everything was very clean and the breakfast was good. It was good value for money.

It's was a good B&B who was near everything but I was really disappointed with the village. There's nothing to do in Portmagee except to see Valentia Island who is pretty small, the Kerry Cliffs and to walk on the Island. It's probably because it was raining but I regret to have decide to spend a night in Portmagee. There's...

We stayed in 10 B&Bs on our recent trip to Ireland and this was our favorite. Tina is a great host. The breakfast was wonderful. The room was great. A fire kept the guest lounge toasty warm in the evening. Its a short walk into the village of Portmagee where we enjoyed dinner in a great local pub. A great...
