"A Little Piece of Heaven" The attention to detail is exceptional. To the ping pong table for the kids (or grown ups!), to the beautiful fragrant lavender on your bed to aid sleeping. All the staff greet the guests warmly, rather than trying to avoid eye contact. What I thought was a lovely touch, was no name badges, staff introduce themselves to you which complements the warm welcoming atmosphere of the hotel.

"Absolutely sublime" Myself and my mother stayed here for the first time on a mid-week break in May and we were not disappointed. The guest experience from start to finish is really impressive and we felt treated like VIP guests throughout the stay. The location, views, facilities, food and staff were all incredible. We ate in the bar restaurant twice and the food was fantastic. We had massages in the spa and the experience was superb. The relaxing room afterwards looks out over the bay and we could watch the seagulls diving for fish. Breakfast was a feast and you have to make a big effort not to over-eat with all of the delicious options available! We did the guided cliff walk with Tommy who was so knowledgeable and interesting, not to mention funny. Would definitely recommend doing this. We were very lucky with the weather and it felt like we were on the French Riviera! Ardmore town is a stone's throw away so we were able to walk in and do some gift shopping (there's a lovely local pottery shop) and walk the beach. I even managed a swim in the sea which was warmer than expected! Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Cliff House. It was our first visit but definitely won't be our last. Thank you for making our stay so special!

"Beautiful hotel with fabulous surroundings!" We stayed at The Cliff house for our anniversary - it was perfect. The attention to detail is superb, the service was excellent and there were lovely walks. We rented bikes and cycled the Greenway in Dungarvan which was amazing - we'll worth doing if you get a chance.

"Perfect service" The service is just amazing - staff is very welcoming and accommodating, feels like you are coming back home. The room and the views are above expectations! Pool is a bit overcrowded and we aware that you can only get a full (Michelin though) menu for your dinner which was way too much for us...

"Beautiful hotel, stunning location & excellent service" I frequently visited Ardmore as a child and always considered the village to be a stunning location. When the Cliff House hotel re-opened my family & I thought the decor was beautiful and the atmosphere deserved 5 stars. I gift my parents 2 weekends away per year at the cliff house and they look forward to and enjoy their stay immensely. I would highly recommend the giftvouchers to anyone who is looking to give something special. I have stayed at the hotel multiple times with my partner also and have enjoyed the spa treatments (highly recommend the full body couples massage - the treatment rooms have stunning views), food (tasting menu is a non pretentious Michelin star experience). Even the bar food is delicious & the wines are very well chosen and researched. I stayed at the hotel this weekend and was very pleasantly surprised to receive a complimentary upgrade. I am in my mid 20s and Cliff House management has wisely secured my custom for years to come, coupled with the fact we are now inclined to recommend the hotel to piers & collegues. Overall, we appreciated the special touch and are already looking forward to our next stay.
