Extraordinary View at Armada Hotel


This is the line that separates North Atlantic Sea and West side of Ireland. The view there is captivating and breath-taking. On the right side of this line is the beautiful Armada Hotel. We stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights with my in-laws during their vacation here. We got a pretty good offer through DealRush for €119 for 1 Ocean View Suites (max two persons), 2 nights including breakfast, dinner (3-course meal) for one night and tickets to Cliffs of Moher. The original price is €70 per person sharing with breakfast for 1 night only while a 3-course meal per person will cost about €40- €50. If you'll do the math you will agree with me that we got a great deal.

The Ocean View Suite was so lovely and spacious. A wide double-glazed window will direct you to the awesome view outside where you can see the wild splashing of water of Atlantic Sea. 

Our view from our room
Although it's chilling outside, me and my hubby decided to walk for few minutes. The ocean was roaring loud.  We were stunned by the layers of rock at the seaside. 

Rock formation at the sea side
In Ireland, the seas are labelled blue flag beach if it's clean and fit for human activities like swimming and surfing. This one is a blue flag beach. Even so, I wouldn't dare dipping my feet in the water. Why? It's freezing cold out there even on summer days.

Houses along the coastline
I was looking for the story of this cove but I found nothing. Safe to say that during the Spanish era, it was used as shelter by native people. Otherwise, I stand corrected.

Cove
Armada Hotel is located at Spanish Point Rd, Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare. It is near the most visited sites in Ireland namely  the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and the Ailwee Caves.

  19. I also had a stay in this hotel when I went to Ireland for a business trip. It is the most beautiful and unique hotel of County Clare according to me because it had provided me some really rare sites of the whole county.
