Beautiful location even on a breezy day. The views, atmosphere and food are something every one should experience at least once in their life. Service staff and whole atmosphere was something very special

One of the nicest hotels I've seen anywhere. I can't believe its in Ireland. The spa is amazing, our room was perfect, the staff were excellent and the food at the bar was exceptional. I would highly recommend staying here. Expensive but worth it.

Brilliant in every way. Not cheap but still great value. Save up and go! The food was fantastic, service attentive yet not intrusive, rooms very high standard. Location and setting spectacular. It was one of the best hotel experiences that I have had and we wil certainly be returning

My husband and I stayed in the Cliff House for one night to round off out trip to Waterford/Wexford. As I travel regularly across Europe, I am used to staying in hotels of varying standards so my expectations were set high with the Cliff House to begin with. I wasn't disappointed. I always judge a hotel on first impressions and...

I visit the Cliff House for special occasion meals; I have also had massage there a few times which has been excellent, definitely recommended if you want pampering. The restaurant dinner is an experience worth having at least once - high cuisine undoubtedly, but a bit wasted on me. I prefer the bar for lunch, where the food is more...

We enjoyed our stay here but the hotel is overpriced for the quality of the facilities and the service provided. We did have a fantastic meal in the house restaurant. We were awoken one night by the fire alarm going off, it turned out to be a false alarm but at no stage that night or the next morning did...

Arrived at hotel on one of those rare perfect weather days. Sun was shining and everything looked beautiful. Checked in and first impression of room was wow, the view was amazing over the sea. Went for some bar food and it was quite tasty. However, once we got settled into the room we noticed the flaws. The pressure in the...

We had a full four course dinner in the Bar restaurant at the excellent Cliff House Hotel. They were very busy, the room was full of atmosphere and lovely and warm. The staff were extremely professional, welcoming and friendly. We sought advice on the Wine and Cocktails. My Cocktail was excellent and my partner's wine was most enjoyed. Dietary requirements...

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
