Food & Drink

Breakfast, Sunday Brunch, Family Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Sunday Dinner, Late Supper and Snacks in between – On the Rocks, Freshly Squeezed, Pulled, Poured, Shaken but not Stirred.  Some of the highlights of your trip will be the food and drink enjoyed - all the more so because it is sourced and produced in a responsible way.

All of our listed Cafes, Restaurants, Farmers Markets, Bars and Pubs actively implement environmental policies that include good practice to minimise food waste and very importantly source local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. Some go a step further and work with local groups and schools to encourage healthy eating and teach cooking skills.

Choosing green tastes so good! Wherever you go ask whoever is serving you food - where does it come from? In Ireland this is known as the "Just Ask" practice promoted by Bord Bia (Irish Food Board) to encourage customers to find out the provenance of the foods they eat and to encourage restaurants, etc, to use Irish provenance food and beverages.

The Cliff House Hotel is a five-star, privately owned luxury hotel located close to Cork and Waterford. The building seems to cling to a cliff on the south side of Ardmore Bay where there has long been a fishing village, and a Christian settlement that pre-dates St. Patrick.
From sun-drenched terraces and private balconies it is possible to see Ardmore’s sands, lobster pots and dolphins that play out on the water. All our luxury rooms and suites are sea facing while many are interconnected to provide family-friendly configurations. Our modern bathrooms include Anne Semonin toiletries and locally hand-made Organic Soaps with colours that matching bedroom’s theme.
From this dramatic coastal location in Ireland’s gourmet heartland you can enjoy some of the country’s best restaurants - including our own Michelin-starred House Restaurant from Martijn Kajuiter where we are using ingredients from local suppliers. We also have a bar with an outdoor terrace for summer dining.
Our intimate destination spa, The Well, is a key attraction. We are close to a number of Ireland’s championship golf courses, as well as other attractions such as Titanic Experience, Fota Wildlife Park, Lismore Castle and many others.
Our five-star luxury hotel is an hour’s drive from both Cork and Waterford airports and Rosslare Car Ferry in a fashionable area rich with culture, historic houses and gourmet landmarks. We also have moorings for yachts. From your base here, we provide smooth access to our destination’s highlights and if you need “a lift” our fully electric car is always at your service.
Our design is Irish modern: white walls, cupa stone columns, limestone terracing and sedum moss-covered roofs which provide natural and ecological insulation. We have Ireland’s largest private collection of campaign furniture and specially commissioned artisanal works, from handcrafted glass pieces by Glasshammer to individual resin designs by Sasha Sykes.
