The proprietors were very nice, and were helpful with what to see around the area. Breakfast was very good, but it was not included in the price of the room. The room was comfortable, although we were expecting an in-suite bathroom and had to use one across the hall. Overall, it was a comfortable stay.SSSSS

Lovely, organized, and great people. Out of the 16 different places we stayed on vacation, this was our favorrite B&B. Other places could take lessons from them. And fabulous food too:SSSSS

Here you will receive a warm welcome from your hosts Margaret and Alan. My room was large and very comfortable and I slept soundly. Meals are cooked to order by Alan and are excellent. Try his full Irish breakfast! The Old Cable Guesthouse is an ideal centre from which to tour the surrounding areas of Glengariff with its sub-tropical garden on Garnish Island and also Bantry Bay with Bantry House and garden and of course Caherdaniel is nearby too. The Walshes are very knowledgeable on the area and directed me to Kells garden near Cahirciveen where I spent a wonderful afternoon. The scenery around Waterville is some of the finest in Ireland and I can recommend the Old Cable House to anyone who wishes for a pleasant holiday.SSSSS

What a friendly and nice people here. We have enjoyed fresh fish of the day made by the owner himself, talked about fishing with his father seen on photos in the main hall. Calm place great for walks to the shore. Will return sure.SSSSS

Waterville is a very cute town. If i were to return i would stay at the Sea Lodge if it is available. We had dinner there and it was first class but really inexpensive. The old Cable House needs a makeover. I stayed in several other b&b's in Ireland, and for the price there are many better alternatives. I returned my breakfast and after it was cooked some more, it was still inedible. My sister on the other hand loved her experience at Cable House...so there you goSSSSS

We stay at the Old Cable House Guesthouse recently and had a wonderful stay. The room was nicely appointed with a very nice bathroom with a huge shower. Allen, the proprietor served a wonderful made to order breakfast the next morning. The B&B is located adjacent to the Ring of Kerry loop and was quite convenient. All in all, a memorable stay in Waterville, IrelandSSSSS
