Myself and my husband spent our first wedding anniversary at the Cliffhouse last weekend. It exceeded our expectations. The food in the House restaurant is exceptional and the level of service is very good. It was one of, if not possibly the best, meals we have had in Ireland or abroad.The bar area is of course casual dining, food to... More

Myself and my now fiance went to the cliffhouse hotel and it was just an unforgettable experience. The beautiful views of Ardmore bay from our luxurious suite were the perfect backdrop for the perfect proposal. To follow that we had a truly delicious and unforgettable Michelin starred meal. Thank you for a wonderful experience we will never forget! We will... More

My wife and I spent five nights here at the beginning of October 2014. We were impressed by the hotel structure, furnishings and facilities, but most of all by the friendly staff and prompt service. I used the swimming pool on several occasions: it is excellent, and it looked as if the other spa facilities were equally good. We did... More

We went as a couple for a two night stay to celebrate a (my) birthday. This is a lovely hotel but I do not consider it to be a true 5* hotel - more like a top end boutique 4 star. Firstly, the setting for the hotel is lovely. Ardmore is a pretty village with a backdrop of coastal cliffs... More

We stayed here te 8th and 9th of September. The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful. We had a lovely time there. The first night we ate "bar food" which was good. The second night we ate in the restaurant which was truly excellent. A mild draw back is related to the layout of the hotel: the trip from... More

Dera crottpk Thank you for your review and glad you were able to negotiate the tricky lifts! It is one of the anomalies we must endure to ensure that all our rooms and public areas have views over Ardmore Bay. Look forward to welcoming you back, Kindest regards Adriaan Bartels General Manager More

I wanted to find the Cliff House to be a 5 star hotel and spa, but, in some areas, it was slipping. If you stay, in a cliff veranda suite, with the bedroom and bathroom, to be in an upstairs loft, be prepared for the rest of the suite downstairs to be dark and gloomy. The photos make it seem...
