Description: Cliff House HotelPerched at the top off a cliff overlooking Ardmore Bay, Cliff House Hotel was originally built in the 1930s, and after a long and eventful history, was lovingly and painstakingly rebuilt in 2008 by its present owners. This spectacular property now offers five-star boutique style accommodation, gourmet cuisine and range of bespoke facilities in a superb ocean-view location.

The The House Restaurant at The Cliff House Hotel is the centrepiece of this magnificent property, and is the proud holder of a Michelin star.

The relaxed bar restaurant is both sophisticated and easygoing, and a tribute to the finest traditional Irish cuisine.
