It's hard to put into words the kindness that was shown to us by Fiona on our first evening in Ireland and each day afterwards. The Cliff House was recommended to us by our Taxi driver Rose, with Enright Tours. It was the perfect place to eat a lovely dinner that night. We were jet lagged, tired and struggling with...

The only word I could use to describe my stay at this hotel is abysmal. The room reeked of gloss paint fumes.While the staff were pleasant, the hotel policies and customer service from the hotel owner left an awful lot to be desired. Despite the fact that there is a sign outside the hotel stating food served from 12, we...

Had a lovely five night stay here last summer. The weather was freezing cold but we had a very enjoyable break due in no small part to the warm atmosphere of the hotel. Comfortable room, lovely sea views, nice bar with entertainment at night. There were two stand out features of the Cliff House. Firstly the staff were, without exception,...

We had a delicious family (20 people) meal one evening. We then moved to the bar area for drinks, dancing and singing! Oh so fun! I even cried! The Irish folks are so very, very friendly!! We will be back!!

Very homely décor and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful - especially for me as I am a coeliac so required assistance to confirm gluten free options on the menu. The dinner was amazing, I had monkfish and it was perfectly cooked, and they even provided gluten free toast for me in the morning. We had a...

We were here for 2 nights as we were playing 3 rounds at Ballybunion. My friend Bob has stayed here previously and our group of 8 from Chicago could not have been happier. Fiona and her husband Kevin were perfect hosts. We had 2 dinners and 2 breakfast and the food was great. The bar is a typical Irish pub...

This hotel is very much in need of an upgrade. Carpets, furniture in rooms, all are pretty shabby. That said, the staff is friendly and the dinner we had in the hotel was very good. I don't think I would stay here again, but it wasn't unpleasant.

I visited this hotel last week. It is well run with a great menu. The staff are exceptional, particularly Amy. This small hotel is directly opposite the cliffs and beach and a short stroll into town. You won't get much better service and food than this in the area I'm sure. Bigger towels in bathroom please
