My husband and I ate in the hotel bar last Friday lunch time and were extremely disappointed in the standard of the food that we ate. We had been so looking forward to having an amazing experience and were let down by the lack of flavor and blandness of both our dishes. He chose the cod with lemon potatoes and... More

From the moment my husband and I arrived, it was just awe inspiring. One of the receptionists came out when we checked in and took the trouble to explain the levels of the hotel to us as we had never been before - she was most impressive and very friendly. Our room, 56, had a lovely view of Ardmore beach... More

Just back from a return visit to the fabulous Cliff House. We were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary with a few days in Ardmore. Another little slice of heaven. Excellent food (the most delicious seafood chowder I have ever encountered) sumptuous wine, glamorous cocktails, impressive spa facilities, falling asleep to the sound of the waves at night, friendly and helpful...

We decided to treat ourselves to a bit of luxury for our anniversary and it didn’t disappoint in any way. From our arrival, where we were greeted with valet parking, everything was perfect. Every member of staff we encountered was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. We were upgraded from a balcony room to a terrace – a completely private terrace with... More

We stayed on the Dinner Bed and Breakfast package and tho its not cheap, it is certainly worth the money. We ate in the bar and found everything to be delicious. We could have eaten from the... More

This is a gem. Visited the restaurant for some light dining after a healthy cliff walk. I was very impressed by the ambiance and professionalism of this boutique hotel and also the delicious food served al fresco while enjoying a wonderful view if Ardmore Bay.

The Cliff House Hotel is absolutely stunning. The guest rooms are gorgeous and very well appointed with spectacular original art on the walls. But the real star is the restaurant: the food was imaginative and delicious; the service was impeccable. We were all so sad to leave after only one night but we had a long drive ahead of us.... More
