The Cliff House Hotel is a perfect place. An intimate, cascading Ireland country house sewn into the coast overlooking the historic village of Ardmore, in West Waterford, that is distinguished as much for its design and sea views as for the region's most exquisite food - The House Restaurant is a One Michelin Star Restaurant - spa and sleep experiences.
This 39 bedroom jewel is at once holiday and hideaway. It is as true to the trusted service standards of yesteryear as the subtle, stylish comforts expected by you - the 21st Century guest. Welcome to Ireland's standout small hotel in West Waterford.
The Cliff House Hotel is unique amongst Irish hotels. Sitting into Ardmore Bay in the picturesque landscape of West Waterford, and splashing with natural light, its gardens, terrace and balconies seem literally to trickle down the cliffs. The Ireland country house interiors draw an extraordinary landscape inwards. Palettes of marine blue, fuchsia, aubergine and sea green evoke the surrounding Waterford countryside. So close is the sea, you'll feel like a passenger on an ocean liner.
There are thirty nine beautifully appointed rooms all of which overlook Ardmore Bay. In your room, you will find original Irish art, elegant furniture, free Wi-Fi and a great night's sleep. Almost all rooms feature private balconies or terraces overlooking the Irish Sea. The Suites are set on two levels and feature specially commissioned artworks and individual designs. Their bathrooms edge onto a private veranda, offering guests the opportunity to end each day with a shower beneath the stars
