Contemporary Irish Luxury Close to Waterford
Cliff House Hotel is a five-star, privately owned luxury hotel located close to Cork and Waterford. 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.
Regarded as one of the finest small luxury hotels in Ireland, 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 as well as a one Michelin-star restaurant.
A Hotel in Ireland for Seaside Luxury
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 hotel rooms and suites are sea-facing while many are interconnected to provide family-friendly configurations.
From this dramatic coastal location in Ireland’s gourmet heartland, it is possible to enjoy some of the country’s best restaurants—including our own Michelin-starred House Restaurant. We also have a bar and summer terrace dining.
Rooted in Heritage
Our intimate destination spa, The Well by the Sea, is a key attraction. We are close to a number of Ireland’s championship golf courses, and encourage outdoor adventures to support your wellness goals, your Cliff House experience always supported by accurate, old world service that’s warm and true to the Irish spirit.
Our design is Irish modern: white walls, cupa stone columns, sedum moss-covered roofs and limestone terracing. We have Ireland’s largest collection of campaign furniture in addition to specially commissioned artisanal works, from hand-loomed wall pieces by Muriel Beckett to Celtic motifs on bespoke carpets
