My husband and I stayed in the Cliff House Hotel a few weeks back and we thoroughly enjoyed! We were given a lovely room with a sea view which was fab! The rooms are dated but all extremely clean and in working order so no complaints there. We ate in the restaurant both nights and were delighted with the food - it was gorgeous! The staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodated our requests for the restaurant no problem. The hotel is right across from the beautiful beach and we availed of the amazing cliff walks and beaches all weekend. The town itself is quiet but so is everywhere these days so that didn't bother us! We ate great food in a lovely atmosphere and felt totally at ease during our entire stay. Thanks to all the staff especially Maggie at reception :)

Had a lovely two day stay in the Cliffhouse Hotel in Ballybunion last week. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was excellent as was the food. Rooms very clean and fresh. Had a problem with my car which Kevin very kindly sorted. Would definitely recommend this hotel and I will certainly return next year. Nuala

On Tuesday the 21st of September I decided to have something to eat and drink here… to my surprise we had to go and look for someone each time we wanted to order a drink… I asked for a slice of lemon, brown bread and pepper for my smoked salmon; and that was a massive mistake as apparently they took offense. After that it was impossible to get any kind of service. I proceeded to look for the manager to voice my issues. I met a woman on the stairs and asked if there was a manager around, she aggressively said, no but I’m the owner, what’s your problem….. I said very nicely, that I was just trying to get some service yet there was no one to be found. Immediately she snapped and began shouting about how she is understaffed with only 2 employees…. I replied saying that unfortunately that’s not my fault…. She then went completely out of control shouting, telling me to leave the premises and get out if I didn’t like it. This was utterly unacceptable and embarrassing for all in the building. Unfortunately this was not the end of this episode as I remained on the premises to sit with my friends that were staying there, and she told them to go if they were not happy also! I am very disappointed with the service here and will not be returning.

The hotel is located in a beautiful spot in Ballybunion. The room was nice however the toilet did not flush and everything was a little dated. The breakfast was good! We found this hotel very overpriced for what you got.
