Just returned from a weekend at this hotel which was very enjoyable. We went for the DBB 2 night package and were impressed by the quality of our 3 course dinner, freshly cooked breakfast was also excellent. The hotel is well located overlooking the beach but if you want peace and quiet request a room to the back of the...

Had three good meals here while on a guys golf vacation. Food was great and killer good views. Staff more than helpful even when a football game was on and the place was cheering for Wales. Order the seafood chowder, it's great.

We stayed for one night in June 2016, we were lucky enough to be in a balcony room on the top floor, the room was nicely decorated and the view from the balcony was just stunning, will definitely stay again. The food is good too and there was music in the bar. For a 3 Star this is great value...

Thinking of staying at the Cliff House Hotel, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry? Don't think, just go. Now think how well you have been treated by friendly caring staff upstairs and downstairs. How wonderful the food and wine have been. How relaxing the Cliff has been. June guest Aiden on a seaweed bath holiday 2016.

Lovely hotel nicely decorated and staff were all very friendly and helpful. The doors in the rooms are old fashioned and tricky to lock and there is a lack of parking but still a nice homely hotel. The shower was amazing and probably most modern thing about the room.
