Above all the staff. Friendly and helpful and they couldn't do enough for you. Food was outstanding and the views weren'd half bad either!

The staff in this hotel make it what it is. My husband and I have also stayed in the Cliff at Lyons which is great too - this hotel has a wonderful location with lots to do and see nearby. It also has an excellent spa and pool which the Lyons sadly lacks. The food is just okay - breakfast good - the 'bar' food however, we found over priced and unimaginative. We didn't eat in the Michelin starred restaurant, having been broadly unimpressed in the bar and with an eye watering bill for what little we ordered. We went on our second evening to a restaurant in Dungarvan near by (20 minutes drive) and received a good quality meal for the same price with two more courses than that which we enjoyed in the Cliff. The staff are the diamond in the crown of this hotel however - every single one of them friendly, helpful - they simply can't do enough for you. Customer experience is theirs to own and boy do they take their ownership seriously!! Really fantastic people working in this hotel - the guests are extremely well cared for. The rooms are clean and well appointed - excellent little extras and lots of creative thinking into how to make the guest experience great. If a rethink happened about the pricing for the bar food there would be little to criticize this hotel for!

Best hotel in Ireland

Cliff House Hotel is simply the best hotel in Ireland that we have stayed in. The welcome and personal service from the staff is what makes it a truly special place. And it helps to have one of the best fine-dining restaurants in the country on site. The setting on the cliff overlooking the village of Ardmore is also a one-of-a-kind experience with the nearby cliff walk.
