Had a two night stay recently at AH. Lovely hotel, great staff and fabulous food! Seafood Galleon dish is one I would recommend. As for dessert, the chocolate bomb is an absolute must....Yum! Rooms modern and clean. Wifi not very strong tho. Get out and enjoy local walks and towns like Kilkee and Lahinch. Will deffo be back.

Stayed here on the Sunday of the October bank holiday weekend. When we arrived the hotel looked very nice. It was decorated for Halloween which was a nice touch. The girl on reception who checked us in was SO busy. She was trying to answer calls and check us in. Even though she was on her own and was under... More

We stayed in the Armada in October 2016 and had a really brilliant time. We were checked in by Clare on reception who was a pleasure to deal with for the duration of our stay. We had room 147 which is one of the Armada's tranquility suites and I must admit it was plush. With an elevated bath looking out... More

The pub at the front is extremely cosy although the open fire does make it quite smoky. We had reserved restaurant prior to arrival. Disappointed that a few of the items on the menu were unavailable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Armada Hotel where you will enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of West Clare on the edge of the Atlantic ocean. You will be spoiled for choice with our dining options where the emphasis is on using wild, seasonal and local produce in the Pearl Restaurant, Ocean Bar and the traditional Johnny Burke's Bar. The Ocean Bar is the perfect retreat for a leisurely coffee or carvery lunch with bar food served 7 days a week. Johnny Burke's bar is a great place to meet the locals and enjoy an Irish Craft beer pared with some good wholesome food and you never know who might drop in for a live traditional music session ! And of course, West Clare is all about getting out and about and within a short driving distance you can find the iconic Cliffs of Moher, Aran Islands, the Burren and lovely coastal drives. The Armada is a great base for those who like an activity based holiday with surfing, kayaking, cycling and walking all available locally and the world renowned Lahinch and Doonbeg Golf courses are close by too. ... more   less
