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... More

It is hard to describe in a simple review, the wonderful experience we had in Ardmore. Of course the service is fantastic, but the food and drink is wonderful. From the bread and butter through to course 8 and the heavenly chocolate and gold leaf. I've never had an evening like it and I'm hoping that one day it may... More

I had stayed previously with my husband so knew to expect a high standard of service and dining experience but it was all new to mum and she had a ball. Her favourite story is that after making a...

A wonderful restaurant hidden inside this great hotel. We had a set New Years Eve menu. The food was excellent. Just the right level of choice and options. Everything tasted fantastic. Cooked to perfections the portion sizes were just right. After 5 food courses I felt perfectly satisfied but not stuffed so I couldn't move! Enough to move on to... More
