Welcome to the Armada Hotel with the Sights, Sounds and Tastes, of West Clare on the Atlantics edge.

Here in West Clare, it has been over 50 years since things kicked off here at the Armada Hotel, and what an adventure it’s been!  We have learned a few things in that time, we know how lucky we are to be in West Clare and we reflect that in so much of what we do. We know we are incredibly privileged with the people that work here and we know that good food and service is so important to our customers. Along the way we do all we can to make a meaningful difference to people and place.  So we work hard on all of these elements, every day. 

In our food offering, we want to give you a taste of our location where possible with every bite. We spend our downtime finding suppliers, experimenting on dishes, connecting suppliers together, and creating and tasting great drinks, not a bad time to be working here!   Our produce where possible is sustainably sourced from within the county. Our meats are from North Clare, vegetables from our own Armada Farm and Moy Hill Farm, the famous Burren smoked salmon, local beers, sea veg from across the bay, local oysters, crabs, and sustainable fish, to mention just a few. We’ve also created our very own whiskey and Mist + Moss gin, which is the first gin made using wild Irish juniper and botanicals that grow in the Burren.  All of this is combined with our hard-working team in creative dishes and drinks, across our uniquely styled food outlets which include the Pearl restaurant, Ocean Bar and Bistro, Johnny Burke’s pub and Banqueting

Our rooms are the perfect retreat for our guests to return to after a day of exploring the natural beauty of West Clare, or from their adventures along the Wild Atlantic Way. All our guest rooms are uniquely designed by a team of Irish designers. The rooms and suites are generously sized with simple fabrics and furnishings made by local craftspeople. Our interiors have been chosen to bring the outside in, reflecting the colours and energy of the hotel’s natural surroundings, from the Abigail Edward’s seascape wallpaper, the Irish handwoven tweed blankets draped over each guest bed, Kevin Lowery art featuring some of the most popular surfing waves, to handpicked locally harvested seaweeds used in our beautiful Handmade Soap Company products supplied in every guest room.

We love what we do here in West Clare
