The Cliff House Hotel South East Ireland, Ireland

“Contemporary hotel with spectacular sea views and an award-winning restaurant. Ultra modern design from the infinity pool to the spectacular glass-walled dining room and spa. Bright bedrooms with lots of natural light and private balconies. An utterly unique homage to modernist design and comfort. ”

Photo of The Cliff House Hotel

“Ultra modern and built into the cliff using natural stone, slate and glass, with cascading terraces offering sensational sea views from public spaces, infinity pool and bedrooms alike. Expect flat-screen televisions, wall-hung fireplaces, sumptuous beds dressed in expensive tweed throws, luxurious bathrooms with stand-alone baths. Dining is exquisite and dramatic: reason alone to come, served in a spectacular glass-walled dining room with silver, Irish linen and heavy Waterford crystal. The stylish bar, candle-lit with heated terraces, mirrors the chilled vibe in the diminutive spa.”
