Attended a function at the armada hotel last night and found my expiernce a major let down considering the rave reviews it gets on this.

Lovely hotel with stunning views. We had two rooms, Rooms were large and clean. Pub has live music and was good fun. Breakfast was average but views of bay made up for food. Shame not to make bit more effort on food quality and choice at breakfast.

We have been running dance events for many years as well as attending many others run throughout the Country so I can honestly say that the care given to us by everyone at the Armada has without doubt been exceptional. The fantastic staff were just wonderful and were so kind & helpful to our guests, everyone attending can't say enough...

This is a 3 star hotel at best, but the people and pub make it a 4 star with an upgrade to the best room level--60 euros extra per day. First, we went during the off season, so this is normally a sea side hotel, which in the summers would be very good place to stay, with a nice beach...

I would go back here in an instant. Nice hotel, spacious rooms, and great location. Walks on the beaches, into Milltown Malbay if you'd like (or drive/bike), and right on the ocean. Great value, friendly staff, nothing short of a great visit!

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
