We all enjoy finding a beautifully wrapped gift under the tree on Christmas morning. But often the best presents can’t be tied up with a bright red bow. Gifting a loved one a five-star weekend at the Cliff House Hotel in Waterford, Cliff at Lyons in Kildare or Cliff Townhouse on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin will delight and surprise long after this year’s Christmas baubles have been boxed away. After all, wonderful memories are the greatest gift of all.
Located in Ardmore, at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliff House Hotel is the perfect spot from which to explore West Waterford and the wider East Cork region. With the stunning sandy beaches and chocolate box thatched cottages that characterise this pretty seaside town, a weekend at the Cliff House Hotel is an ideal gift for someone who loves to be out and about, to walk, explore and experience.
Afterward, enjoy a five-star wellness and spa experience at the hotel with its Well at Cliff line of beauty products, all of which are a blend of natural ingredients, including Irish peat, Carrageen moss and hand-crushed herbs from the garden. And even better, they’re available to buy, so you can recreate the Cliff spa experience at home.
A former barracks, forge, mill and estate house in Kildare comprise the Cliff at Lyons estate, a divine 38 bedroom rural retreat that offers the tranquillity of a countryside village, but with access to a multitude of exciting activities, including paddle boarding and cycling along the nearby canal. The Well in the Garden is a luxury award-winning spa set in the beautifully restored Carriage House building.
Cliff Townhouse in Dublin, meanwhile, is perfectly situated to allow guests explore the city’s wonderful shops and sights. An exquisite Georgian building – with signature high ceilings and large sash windows – facing the capital’s St Stephen’s Green park, bedrooms offer either park views or classic Dublin city views. On the ground-floor you can enjoy the best of Irish seafood and in the lower ground-floor is urchin, a cosy and casual cocktail bar.
The best thing about memories is making them. So, give the gift of Cliff with a voucher for the five-star Cliff House Hotel in Waterford, hotel and country retreat Cliff at Lyons in Kildare or Cliff Townhouse in the heart of Dublin on St Stephens Green. Available online and from the three hotels; call (024) 87800 or visit www.cliff.ie. You can view the group’s CLIFF’s beautiful collection of homewares, spa products and food items at www.cliffhome.ie.
