Ardmore is one of those places that you read about in novels and the best tourist brochures.  It is a fishing village, a wonderful seaside resort; it also boasts one of the most historic monastic sites in Ireland - with a perfectly preserved Round Tower, an early Christian site where St. Declan of Ardmore had his church, and it has one of the finest hotels in Munster if not in Ireland. Add to this 'one of the finest cliff walks in the country' and you have the ingredients for a perfect holiday.

The Round Tower at Ardmore County Waterford is said to be of 11th century origin. It is one of the best preserved round towers in the country. Scholars differ as to the purpose of these round towers, but when one considers that the Irish word for such a tower is Cloigeach meaning Bell Tower, then the purpose becomes obvious. That they were used as places of storage and refuge is not disputed but the original purpose was similar to the steeple on a church today - a bell tower and a symbol of status.

Sumptuous interior Cliff House Hotel Ardmore Waterford Ireland
Interior of Cliff House Hotel Ardmore recalls bygone days of opulence yet with a thoroughly modern approach. 

 A gentle nautical atmosphere is appropriate in such a setting, and reminders of voyagers and visitors from other centuries are discreetly evident.
