“What a stunning view!”
Maître de Maison - Adriaan Bartels
Cliff House Hotel is in a stunning location, overlooking Ardmore Bay. The hotel’s architecture is truly extraordinary as it has been built right onto the side of the cliff. The bar and outdoor terrace, the restaurant, spa and each guest room all enjoy exceptional views of the expansive bay. With direct access to the sea, the hotel offers numerous outdoor activities, such as ocean kayaking, surfing, whale watching, fishing and rock climbing. There are many beaches nearby and you can walk to St. Declan’s Well on the famous Cliff Walk. Lismore Castle and the Midleton Whiskey distillery are easy to reach from Ardmore.

Discover the hotel

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 and a multi award winning restaurant.
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.

Our commitments

How to bring together solidarity, organic farming, respect for biodiversity and the environment. Cliff House Hotel is working on a multi pronged strategy.

We do not use exotic fish or fish born from intensive, destructive practices. All our fish is sourced from local suppliers and sourced according to the seasons. We collect herbs and vegetables daily which are grown by members of the St Raphaël Centre in nearby Youghal, which is a centre for disabled members of the community. All efforts to minimise and reduce waste are made by all members of our team to align with our eco friendly strategy to cut down on waste costs.
