Really romantic and relaxed place. Lovely walk, spa and great food. The breakfast was fantastic. Myself and my fiancé got engaged here over the weekend and we couldn't have picked a better place. Will come back here a lot.

About
Description
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 More 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. Less

When we visited the hotel we saw a small area with kennel in the underground car park for dogs - genuine effort but not a particularly good option as any dog there is likely to be very isolated.
