Welcome to the Armada Hotel, the perfect retreat for you to relax after a day spent exploring the natural beauty of County Clare or from your adventures along the Wild Atlantic Way. Experience a taste of West Clare and enjoy creative dishes and drinks from the uniquely styled food outlets, which include Johnny Burke's pub and the newly designed Aileen's Restaurant and Ocean Bar. The menus feature local food, artisan food producers and dishes with herbs and vegetables from Armada Farm. Soak up the stunning Atlantic views with many bedrooms overlooking the coastline, as well as spectacular views from our restaurants and outdoor terraces. And while you are a guest with us here in the Armada, we invite you to dive right in and enjoy great days out to the Cliffs of Moher, Loop Head, The Burren or the Aran Islands. For the adventure seekers, there are a host of outdoor activities so be sure to try your hand at wild sea swimming or surfing on Spanish Point beach, kayaking at the White Strand or cycling around Loop Head. And after a day spend exploring, we recommend a visit to Johnny Burke's pub, a cosy spot where our Armada history began over 50 years ago and where you’ll be assured of a warm West Clare welcome!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great location if you like the ocean, watching the waves roll in was very relaxing. Absolutely amazing food, it was the highlight of our stay. Really friendly and accommodating staff. What a great hotel to stay in on the west coast of Ireland.

Attended a family wedding over 2 days. The room was spacious -I didn’t have a sea view but others attending raved about it-the sea was angry! Try and get a sea view room. Bar (Tony) and the young staff were very attentive. Defo worth a visit and take your swimmers for the traditional dip in the Atlantic. Will be back.

My husband and I along with our daughters, partners and our family from Canada spent two nights at the Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, Co. Clare. The hotel location is unbelievable, sitting at the edge of the Atlantic. Food was delicious, staff very friendly, cocktail bar unreal. The bedrooms were beautifully appointed. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

Hi there, Just wanted to give credit where’s its due. We had a wonderful meal in the Ocean Bar and having the separate room was just perfect! The service was A1 and the food was beautiful! I’m a huge fan of the Armada from staying there in the Summer, and I think there may a few more after our perfect evening on the 28th December. Thank you everyone!

Had a very enjoyable family gathering recently celebrating 2 birthdays. In summary, the food, service and friendliness of the staff were all very good., and all the family really enjoyed the occasion. That said, there is some room for improvement. 1. Incorrect coffee served with our initial drinks, Americano instead of Cappuccino. 2. A craft beer that apparently had passed it's sell by date and was undrinkable was served. 3. Two after lunch Cappuccino coffees were served cold. These were all quickly corrected. However, the thing that disappointed most was the prawn cocktail starters. These were charged at €14 each and contained 4 prawns ( 3 small and one larger) on a bed of lettuce with very scant sauce. I have never experienced such poor value from any other restaurant I ever visited and could not find any reason to justify this. So my advice is to avoid the prawn cocktails as there are other starters on the menu that are much better value. In conclusion, other than the points raised above, The food overall was really very good, the fish in particular was excellent. The negatives raised in my review are all easily correctable and I am sure will be addressed by Management to further improve an overall good experience.

We had our Xmas party in Aileen’s with pre-party cocktails in the Ocean Bar. From the time we arrived we were made welcome by Niall OHanlon, cocktails expertly made by Neil and Callum 🍸🍸. The Ocean Bar gives you a NY feel in west Clare. Our meal in Aileen’s is the best of fine dining made by chef Sebastian and our great waiting staff Cillian and Alejandro 😊. A final round of drinks in Johnny Burke’s with Eanna and a small chat with George. One of the best nights in a long while.

Wonderful Hotel! Enjoyed a two night stay for a wedding. Fantastic food. Excellent service. Rooms with a view were gorgeous - well appointed. Our friends were in a family room and it came supplied with toys to keep the kids entertained. Great hotel - made the wedding even more special. Will gladly come back for a couples weekend, golf, or a drink.

I spent three days with my wife & three kids (13, 11 & 6) in the Armada hotel last week and I absolutely could not fault it. The hotel is exceptional and very welcoming but the staff are utterly superb. The hospitality is evident in all the staff and very genuine. From the management, to Shane at the desk, Fiona in the restaurant each morning and Gerry in the Bar. We will be booking again for next year. Highly recommend it to anyone seeking a break away from the normal pace of life. John B.
