We arrived at the stunning Cliff House Hotel to a warm welcome. The hotel is built into the Cliff-face and the views from the rooms are stunning. Our room was very comfortable was nicely designed, and provided everything we could require. The only small issue we had was that the room temperature was too warm but it's only a small... More

Cliff House hotel definitely wins my personal "feel good" place to stay in Ireland, it truly is exceptional. The staff are superb, giving a lovely, warm greeting on arrival and showing you around the modern yet cosy property. There are a great range of amenities; a reading room, the pool & spa and a relaxing bar taking in the view... More

This is a lovely hotel. We stayed for one night and would have loved to stay longer. The setting is beautiful, built in to the cliff side with lovely views of the bay. The decor is modern but extremely cosy at the same time, using golden coloured timber fittings and carpets of various shades of blue. There is a comfortable... More

We came to the Cliff House for our honeymoon in Feb 2015, and it was exceptional from start to finish. In short, the location and setting is stunning; the rooms are beautiful; the bar food deserves an award; the restaurant is incredible; the spa was fantastic. Above all else, the staff are simply brilliant. From the minute we arrived, they... More

We were told that we had booked a family interconnecting room, when we arrived all the furniture was pushed to one side and 2 camp beds was in one room.

Dear MaryKeownOBoyle Thank you for your review. I have looked into your comments. When you made your reservation we recommended that you book an interconnecting suite for your family of two adults and three children. You explained that your voucher did not cover this and were unwilling to pay the supplement for the extra room. The suite that we had... More

Stayed here the 15th February. The hotel was easy to find, it's very well signposted. Was quite hard to get parking but after waiting 10 minutes, a space became free. The hotel itself is spotless, the staff are friendly and helpful, the view we had from our bedroom was beautiful. The atmosphere in the hotel was nice and relaxing, it... More
