I'd heard a lot of good things both in terms of the comfort of the hotel and the quality/creativity of the food. Consequently, went for an overnight package with another couple and were not disappointed. Could certainly have stayed longer (it is an ideal place in which to snuggle in during wild winter days) and will return - what more... More

Celebrated my Friends 30th with 18 others and the hospitality and food was 2nd to none, the staff and management were superb and very friendly throughout our meal. The Birthday girl received a lovely personal Birthday Card signed from the staff in the Cliff House Hotel.

Well worth an overnight stay. Great room, great breakfast, and great staff. Overlooks a beautiful bay with a great 4 km walk around the headland visiting old coast guard and relligious buildings. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for one night in the middle of a family trip. Very cozy atmosphere overall, our room had a wonderful ocean view. We arrived too late in the evening to enjoy any of the amenities like the spa, dining room, or pool but had a fabulous time on the patio enjoying drinks and looking at the sea. The room... More

Divinely comfortable beds, beautiful room and bathroom with a balcony overlooking the sea. Very quiet i the room. Excellent service and utterly scrumptious food in the House Restaurant. Plenty to see and do in the area with lovely walks.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cliff House Hotel.A Hotel For Seaside Luxury Regarded as one of the finest small luxury five-star hotels in Ireland, The Cliff House Hotel is a 39-room Irish seaside boutique hotel in the traditional fishing village of Ardmore. Our privately owned hotel also features an intimate Irish destination spa as well as the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Ireland outside Dublin. The building seems to defy gravity, clinging to a cliff on the south side of Ardmore Bay where there has long been a fishing village. From sun-drenched terraces and private balconies it is possible to see Ardmore’s golden sands, lobster pots and dolphins that play out on the water. All our luxury rooms and suites are sea facing while many are interconnected to provide family-friendly configurations. Our intimate destination spa, The Well, is a key attraction. ... more   less
