About Us

Our Story

The Waterfront Hotel is a small relaxed family run hotel on the square in Baltimore Village, West Cork.  We have a mix of standard and superior rooms most with a view of Baltimore Bay and harbour and all with a simple fresh coastal style.

The Waterfront, is run by the second generation of the Jacob Family.  Youen Jacob Snr originally hailed from Brittany in France.  In the 1970’s he sailed into Baltimore, moored at Sherkin Island met his future wife, Mary O’Neill the primary school teacher on the Island and the rest is history.  They went on to establish Chez Youen Seafood Restaurant and later expanded to what is today a busy Jacob’s Bar, Lookout Restaurant and Rooms.

Casual Bar Food

Jacob’s Bar

Jacob’s Bar is located in the picturesque village of Baltimore in West Cork. This spacious bright space with large glass folding doors that open out on to the village square is an ideal setting for visitors and locals alike to enjoy the beautiful views and activities of Baltimore.  In fine weather tables and chairs spill out on to the pavements or indoors a 60 food u shaped copper counter and various seating options is a great solution for those windy wet days.  Jacob’s Bar serves a casual bar food menu from 12.30p.m. to late 7 days a week including locally caught grilled fish and chips, shellfish of the day, sirloin steaks and a full range of freshly prepared pizza.
