If fresh air, fine dining, and deep relaxation are your priorities, make your way to the Cliff House Hotel. Perched on the cliffs of Ardmore in Co. Waterford, this five-star hotel overlooks a vast expanse of the Celtic Sea. Everything about Cliff House is beautifully serene, from the sea views to the tranquil colour palette in the luxurious bedrooms.
Thanks to the spa’s floor-to-ceiling windows, it’s hard to know where the sea begins and the infinity pool ends. And if you’re feeling adventurous, there’s an outdoor rock pool for swimming at high tide. After your chilly plunge, you’ll deserve the warmth of the stone baths on the outdoor relaxation terrace. Choose from an essential oil blend, organic peat bath, or seaweed bath for maximum relaxation.
Inside the spa, there’s plenty more to indulge in. Using Irish-made botanicals, therapists will work to improve your skin and soothe your muscles through facial treatments and massages. Afterwards, treat yourself to a delicious Afternoon Tea in the House Restaurant. It’s a feast of buttermilk scones, pretty pastries, and sandwiches filled with local salmon, cheeses, and meats.
