We recently stayed 2nights for a friend's wedding. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. The hotel has been upgraded since my last visit and I found my room comfortable and clean. The only problem we had was the extremely slow service for the wedding meal, we sat at 530 and received dessert at 10! I can only surmise the... More

Beautiful end to a very wet vacation in Ireland. Who would have thought it would rain all week in August ?! The location is beautiful with great views and the hotel reception staff and restaurant staff cordial and polite. Rooms are spread out so there is quite a lot of walking to get to the rooms. Good size rooms but... More

We stayed here for one night on a wild, wet, windy day in February. We had a beautiful room overlooking the wild Atlantic sea and it was fab. The hotel is lovely, rooms were nice and clean, ours was very spacious with a jacuzzi bath which we used for a seaweed bath...very relaxing. Bar food is pricey for what you... More

We first came across this hotel by chance. At the time we were exploring wedding venues and we stumbled across the wedding brochure. From our initial contact with Marita (Wedding coordinator) we knew we were on to a winner. I don't think I have ever received such genuine hospitality as I did that day. This was enough to secure the... More

Stayed here recently for 3 nights with husband and two children. Beautiful spot on Atlantic Ocean. Hotel room was clean but very cramped for 4 people. Shower pressure was very poor. The Pearl Restaurant was very slow to take order and food service was even slower. Needs a lot of work. Staff were nice except for one grumpy waitress. Food... More

Had a few pints in here. Such a gorgeous location. The bar is really cool with lots of pictures and things on the walls to look at. Bar staff were super friendly. All in all a great atmospheric place.

The week ending Friday 12th of August, saw my 4th visit since February, and 8th overall ,to the Armada in Spanish Point. It's not often that i would go to the same hotel that many times in such a short space of time, but there is a few things which keep drawing me back here. I've reviewed this hotel before,... More

Myself and my wife and two children stayed for a week (last week). It's a great jump off spot for all the attractions in Clare. It's right beside the beach (brilliant for surfing or just jumping in the waves). We ate in the pub / restaurant every night. Besides the really excellent food (although I thought the "fish galleon" was... More

Stopped in here for carvery lunch today during a trip to the beach. Carvery is what it is, food was fine and big portions. However when it comes to ordering from the kids menu, you have a ridiculous situation where you only order it when paying for the adults' food, so by the time the children's food arrives, they are...

After wanting to visit Clare for many years we choose the Armada as our base for my 40th birthday couple of days away with husband and son. Not cheap at €179 per night included breakfast each morning and one evening meal. Arrived at the hotel to check in after a long drive from Kildare at 2.10pm, room wasn't ready. OK... 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
