What really struck me is how friendly and professional the members of staff are at the Armada. They work hard for customers and keep smiley and under control when things get very busy. I was very touched by their kindness. Our car broke down and many members of staff - including Jerry who even gave us a lift - kindly... More

This was a real find. We stayed here for a few nights during a week's holiday on the west coast. We arrived to a fabulous greeting on reception with lots of help w.r.t things to do in the area etc. The room we had was overlooking the ocean and it was really fabulous - spacious, great bathroom, and what a...

Was at a wedding here a few weeks ago. As always, the food in the Armada was gorgeous, and the beautiful views really made the day. But the highlight was the excellent staff. The customer service was better than anywhere I've been. They were so professional and friendly. The wedding was very child-friendly, and when all the kids went to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Armada Hotel where you will enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of West Clare on the edge of the Atlantic ocean. You will be spoiled for choice with our dining options where the emphasis is on using wild, seasonal and local produce in the Pearl Restaurant, Ocean Bar and the traditional Johnny Burke's Bar. The Ocean Bar is the perfect retreat for a leisurely coffee or carvery lunch with bar food served 7 days a week. Johnny Burke's bar is a great place to meet the locals and enjoy an Irish Craft beer pared with some good wholesome food and you never know who might drop in for a live traditional music session ! And of course, West Clare is all about getting out and about and within a short driving distance you can find the iconic Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, the Burren and lovely coastal drives. The Armada is a great base for those who like an activity based holiday with surfing, kayaking, cycling and walking all available locally and the world renowned Lahinch and Doonbeg Golf courses are close by too. ... more   less
