Cliff House Hotel
The Cliff House Hotel, in pretty Ardmore, on Waterford's wild, forbidding and rather lovely coastline is a pearl. It clings to the cliff in a miraculous feat of engineering, and the interior style is spiffing, all bright colours and warm tones that make it feel that you are in Capri, rather than East Waterford. The fact that the public and private rooms all showcase the incredible views – and proximity – of the bay means the Cliff House feels daringly continental, and that European note is sustained by the radical cooking of Martin Kajuiter and his team in the kitchen, and by the cool management skills of Adriaan Bartels, widely regarded as one of the finest hotel managers in these islands. Put these three elements together an you have a mighty collective, which means it is very easy to fall in love with the Cliff House.
