This unique property, virtually sculpted into the cliff face overlooking Ardmore Bay, is just a few minutes' walk from the village. Most of the individually designed bedroom suites and the public rooms enjoy the spectacular sea views, as do the stunning spa and leisure facilities. Rooms are very comfortable and artistically designed, in a palette of colours reflecting the natural setting. Dinner in the award-winning House Restaurant is a particular highlight – the menus feature imaginatively cooked, seasonal and local produce prepared with care and great flair. More casual fare is served in the bar, or on the terrace when weather permits. Some event spaces and valet parking are available.
