Ardmore (Irish: Aird Mhór, meaning "Great Height") is a fishing village in County Waterford, Ireland, not far from Youghal on the south coast of Ireland, with a population of around 330, although this varies with the tourist season. It is believed to be the oldest Christian settlement in Ireland. Saint Declan lived in the region at some time in the period 350–450 AD and Christianised the area before the coming of Saint Patrick.
Golf: The Cliff House Hotel is well placed for golfing holidays in Ireland. Worldclass championship courses include Old Head of Kinsale with its 300ft cliffs, and Mount Juliet - both a 90-minute drive from Ardmore. Fota Island Golf Club and Waterford Castle Golf are challenging, picturesque courses and within an hour’s drive of our hotel. Local courses for a quick round include Dungarvan Golf Club, The Gold Coast and West Waterford Golf Club. At the hotel, we also have a golf tee box in the gardens allowing you to hit an environmentally-friendly golf ball towards a floating pontoon out in Ardmore Bay.
There is a cliff path beginning near the Cliff House Hotel and ending back in the main street. The walk, which has marker posts erected along the route, passes an old remodelled Coastguard Station, St Declan's Cell and Holy Well, a ruined church, the wreck of the Samson, an abandoned coast guard lookout from 1939/45 and another, much older, lookout tower. Further along there is another well with stone canopy, known as Fr. O'Donnells Well. The Round Tower Complex is atop the hill above the village. This is a 60 min amazing walk located just min from this wonderful property.
Thought to have been founded by St. Declan in the 5th century - predating St. Patrick. The round tower may be of 12th century origin, but could have been built as early as the 10th century, though the first known mention of the tower is in 1642 as it and a nearby castle were occupied by Irish forces. The tower was said to have held 40 men at the time of a battle with English soldiers, so the logical conclusion would be that floors and ladders existed at that time.
