We had a lovely evening at this hotel. The views here are hard to beat even on a miserable Irish day. It is amazing to watch the waves breaking across the ocean from the comfort of your room. The tasting dinner was incredible. Great variety and really well balanced with the accompanying wines.

Fantastic Hotel, The Facilities were second to none. A special mention has to go to Pat the concierge who was beyond helpful and really made us welcome. The rooms and the views would be very hard to beat.

The only issue we would have is the food which we had for lunch. The Panini was really disappointing and the chicken sandwich was just ok. It gave a poor first impression for a hotel that houses a Michelin star restaurant under its roof(not open mon-wed ). However the meal we had in the evening was perfect and made up the earlier underwhelming experience.

Would definitely recommend however and we plan to return during the summer where we can take advantage of the great facilities and amazing coastal location!

We have recently had a lovely weekend in Cliff House. Very enjoyable, staff lovely, food v good. We were disappointed that the michelin restaurant was not open. There are 2 things I would note, firstly the hotel needs a reading/ relaxation room apart from the bar. A room where people can go to read or just relax would be fantastic especially if there was a sea view,(an open fire would be great in the room) The 2nd thing is that the rooms should be cleaned earlier than ours was (early afternoon). Great hotel though and we will be back next year.

Dear Anne B

Thank you for your review.

Next time you stay please ask us to show you where our library is upstairs on level six (sadly the Fire Officer does not allow us have real open fires in the hotel due to its location) and also please remind us that you would like your room serviced earlier - that will not be a problem.

Looking forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards

I recently stayed at the hotel (22/3/13) with my Girlfriend and attended my friends wedding, My first impressions were WOW!! Staff are extremely helpful in particular a porter named patrick who bent over backwards to accommodate us. The whole package was fantastic, The room was immaculate and finished to an extremely high standard. The wedding was awesome with every need catered for. The food was the ace in the hole for me it was simply superb. I would recommend this place to anyone its simply outstanding!!! I for one will certainly be back again.

Just home from our trip and I felt compelled to write a review straight away. We decided to go to the Cliff House for a relaxing night away, first in a long time. After a pretty hairy drive from Dublin in very stormy conditions, we received a fantastically friendly welcome at the front door. Bags unloaded efficiently, car valet parked and a very easy check in. Adrian was on hand to make us feel that extra bit special, giving us a guided tour if the hotel before we adjourned to the bar for a light lunch (in anticipation of the full tasting menu experience later that night). It was one if the stormiest days of the year so far in Ireland so the views from the bar were even more spectacular.

The rooms are spacious, (we had a balcony sea view room), very well appointed and comfortable. My pet hate in nice hotels is not being able to connect my iPhone to the sound system, but no such problem here's

We ate in the House Restaurant that night, going for the full tasting menu with paired wine, and both agreed it was the best meal we had ever had. Having eaten in the best restaurants in Dublin, and further afield, nothing matched the taste, artistry and fun of this meal. Service was excellent too.

All in all, just a fantastic hotel, great staff, stunning location and the best restaurant in Ireland. Can't wait to go back.

Dave and Sarah.
