Stayed here at a wedding recently. The wedding was fantastic - food, service etc could not be faulted. However, the hotel rooms are small, stuffy with plaster board walls and no air conditioning. Every sound could be heard. No sleep for two nights! The bed may as well have been in the corridor. On check out the lady at the... More

The location was central for day trips. We ate several meals here, at each of the restaurants and the pub. Everything was delicious. The pub is very cozy and had great music each night. The dining rooms each had fabulous views and we had a buffet one morning that was an excellent price for the generous portions of food.

We were at a wedding & it was really nice to be able to go outside & have such amazing views. The function room was the perfect size for the wedding & we can't fault... More

Our daughter got married last friday in the Armada and we had 4 memorable nights in the hotel (our 2nd visit to this hotel). The word excellent does not do justice to the hotel. The location is breathtaking, with the sound of the waves breaking in the background and the sun glistening from almost every angle. The staff are exceptional,... More

The rooms were very comfortable. I loved the pillows which is a strange thing to say bit I've stayed in so many hotels with wafer thin pillows. The showers nice and strong as well. As I have hardly any hair left I can't remark for it, but my girlfriend was very impressed with the high quality hair dryer which is... More

We stayed for 3 nights mid week. From the minute we checked in with Teresa (who we found to be so nice and nothing was too much trouble) to the minute we checked out the staff were so friendly, helpful and obliging. Our room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, everything we needed or wanted was there. We... More

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...

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
