2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

Cliff House Hotel has a beautiful location overlooking Ardmore bay. We were lucky enough to have very good weather for our visit. Views from hotel are breathtaking. As soon as we arrived you'd know you're somewhere special. Everything about hotel is impressive, location, staff, room, food, spa. Had a gorgeous meal overlooking the bay watching the sunset. Highly recommended.

I could not speak highly enough of the staff, reception, bar, restaurant, spa and room staff. I think their training is fantastic and a credit to the hotel. Food was magnificent as was the breath-taking views over the bay.

rooms were excellent ,location spectacular but unfortunately not matched by the food and found the service in the food area not up to expectation for a hotel that charges so much for its rooms .the menu was limited and the food quality was ok but again not matching the expectation that we had for a hotel of this standard
