We stayed at the Armada for Sunday through to Tuesday toward the end of October. We didn't know it when we booked the hotel that it was a Bank Holiday on the Monday in Ireland, and it was half term, but to all intents and purposes for us it made no difference other than meaning there were more people for breakfast than we would have expected to see on a Monday. Speaking of breakfast, what a spread? We found the hot food (bacon, sausages, white pudding and black pudding, roast potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled egg, and fried egg) to be both hot and fresh, and the range of cereals and porridge both wide and plentiful.
We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, our room was large and clean, with comfortable beds, and good facilities, and the view of the bay from our first floor window was absolutely breathtaking.
Would we stay there again? Certainly!
Would we recommend it to others? Definitely!
If there was anything to niggle at then I would say that the lack of a large general lobby type area for people to come in and meet for coffee and conversation is the only thing missing.

This charming hotel is a great place to stay for a trip to the Cliffs of Moher, arriving or departing via Shannon. Airport. Ennis is a great town, and the Old Ground makes it a preferred stop on any itinerary.
Tiny little town but this hotel did a lot to make their guests feel welcome. They had a lot of nice touches in the room like cozy robes and slippers, full duvet wrapped around the bed, cupcakes, real coffee and a coupon for a complimentary beer in their bar, and an excellent full Irish breakfast. The bar was lots of fun with local traditional Irish music playing, and their restaraunt was great! We rarely stay to eat at the hotel for dinner as we like to see more of the town, but this was the place to be and we had a great dinner. After a long day on the road, it was really nice to find everything right there and not miss any of the fun.
This hotel compliments a charming little town on the coast. It does what it says on the tin and offers all the facilities one would want from a hotel. Lots of free parking on site which is also a bonus.
The owner, Michael was a wonderful host. He was very attentive, friendly, and helpful. He provided us travel books and even sketched a map for us to follow. Michael was tireless working the front desk, working dinners, and even personally cooking our oettes in the morning. He was obviously a great influence because every single one of his staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
