In a world of repetitive luxury experiences, CLIFF stands apart — a capsule collection of privately owned venues for overnight stays, dining, weddings, meetings and events.

Each location is distinguished by its individual style, by its heart and soul, but also shares the group’s passion for quite simply getting it right.

We embrace the eclectic and the enigmatic, even the slightly eccentric. We challenge the rules. Tradition often collides with the cutting-edge. But always for a reason — to deliver a truly memorable experience, satisfying your adventurous spirit. We have an eye for detail while adding a little magic along the way.

CLIFF offers coastal chic in Cliff House Hotel, Ardmore, Co. Waterford, city glamour in Cliff Townhouse, St Stephen’s Green in Dublin and now a country retreat in Cliff at Lyons, Celbridge, Co. Kildare.

Everything we do is modern in look and feel. At the same time we believe in a classic service ethic while retaining a love of Irish heritage.

The laidback soundtrack, lively kitchen and adventurous daily-changing menu make Urchin a smart urban space for drinks or dinner in town. Cliff House Hotel’s Michelin-starred Executive Chef Martijn Kajuiter and Cliff Townhouse’s Head Chef Sean Smith have joined together to create the CLIFF take on the small plate concept.

With Urchin’s open kitchen, diners and chefs are encouraged to mingle, creating an interactive dining experience. Food is ordered through an informal token system. Chefs talk guests through their selections when they order. The feel is upbeat and spontaneous, giving Urchin all the spirit of this warm Irish city.
