Cliff Beach House is a new private house rental, offering some of the most luxurious, contemporary-styled accommodation in Ireland.

Created by the experienced Irish hotelier family behind the acclaimed Cliff House Hotel, Cliff at Lyons and Cliff Townhouse, the house offers award-winning service, including access to multi-Michelin-starred chefs from the nearby luxury hotel.
A dedicated House Host can arrange bespoke cultural trips, nature and wildlife adventures and zero-km cooking classes: opening up this region’s rich literature, art, music and culinary traditions in the most genuine and heartfelt ways. High-pitched ceilings in the dining room and two living rooms open up through floor-to-ceiling glass to this private rental’s long stone patio. Paths lead out through naturalistic gardens planted with sea air-loving shrubs, and then slip down into the village, and the heart of the arty, local community. Beside the kitchen, there is a sun-bowl which catches the last of the rays and an outdoor hot tub on the terrace provides a dramatic, warming counterpoint to the great outdoors.
Ardmore is one of Ireland’s prettiest fishing villages, with soft sand beaches and relics history from 400 AD on the doorstep. Opening up the southern Ireland region to you is part of the Cliff Beach House experience. With our expert house host on call to you throughout your stay to direct you towards activities suitable for rain, sun, culture, children or the actively inclined.
This includes exploring Ardmore with its sandy beach, traditional music and thatched cottages. Youghal, at the mouth of the River Blackwater just 15 minutes away, is one of the best examples of a Norman walled port in Ireland. Nearby Dungarvan is a thriving seaside market town, and pretty Lismore – dominated by the castle – is possibly one of the country’s quaintest villages.
