We cannot say enough about our stay at the Ardnamara. The owners and staff were simply amazing. The McNicholl family makes you feel like one of their own. The rooms were just lovely. The food and service at the restaurant were top-notch. (Never underestimate the benefit of having a restaurant on the premises! Especially one with such a variety of superb food and drinks.) As a bonus, the views from both the restaurant and our rooms were positively breathtaking. Pictures do not do it justice. It's also just a short walk down to the beach, where you can stroll forever, or just sit and watch the surfers and kite-fliers.
If you do decide to venture away from the many local attractions, Ardnamara is situated perfectly for touring the northwest area of Ireland. (One day we even took a day trip to the Giant's Causeway in Antrim, Northern Ireland. It was a pleasant 2-2.5 hour drive each way, and well worth it. )
We stayed four days at Ardnamara, with our two teenaged sons, and we all truly wished we could have stayed longer. We can't wait to go back!
Many thanks to the McNicholl family for their warm hospitality and superior service.
